Pax was picked up Saturday in the middle of a busy highway in Blue Ridge. Apparently he was weaving in and out of traffic, then flopped down in the middle of the street from exhaustion. Animal Control Office Kevin Crowder rescued him and took him to Emergency Vet Services.
We appreciate the good folks at EVS for examining him, giving him a good meal, and keeping him overnight. He was cleared to go Sunday morning, so we picked him up and and were off to Angels of Assisi.
After arriving at the clinic, we let him cruise around the waiting room to get the feel of the place, while we got his bed and medications ready. It also gave us a chance to get some photos.
These show his eye infections, long toenails, the tumor growing on his back and the one dangling from his left back leg. They don't show the nest of fleas and how he limps when walking. We estimate his age to be 11 or 12.
Pax is another dog that will benefit from the Biscuit Fund, and he will stay at Angels of Assisi until a foster or adoptive home can be found. It's interesting that out of the entire upstairs waiting room and clinic, he chose this place to rest when he arrived on Sunday.
We moved him from the statue to his own little room with a soft bed in the clinic, but he certainly still has angels watching over him, in the form of staff, volunteers, and supporters. And for that, we thank you.
