When we have dogs with special needs - severe medical conditions, training requirements, etc. - we will list them here asking for donations specifically for their care or past expenses.
Momma was bought from a mill in eastern Ohio, near the Pennsylvania border. (It took a lot of generous Leo people to jump in their cars on two days notice, and to give up their Labor Day weekend, and help drive her from Ohio to Indiana and then through Illinois and down to Missouri.) They said that they put her up for sale because they couldn't get any puppies out of her. She was a tall Hungarian import with her very large head and typical Leo color is unmistakably a Leonberger. She weighed 92#, and her feet were abnormally flattened and splayed. She was unable to flex her hind toes in a normal rhythm but walked good. Her large thick dark colored teats and dragging mammary glands show she had lots of litters. The puppies tried to suckle from her and she let them. Her skin was covered in flea bites, flea dirt and scratches. Thanks to foster/adoptive mom Lynn and Anya's vet, Anya was given a chance to enjoy life and she gave us humans a second chance to prove that we can provide love. Read Anya's story here
It's been a very long, tough road for Bella, but there is good news! Bella is out of the hospital! Her blood transfusion was a turning point for her. Once she was able to start eating on her own, she was well on her way to recovery.Bella was hospitalized for 16 days, received a blood transfusion, and lots of other tests and medicines. The vet bill was a big one, even with the discounts the vet generously gave. If you would like to help with Bella's medical costs please donate via Pay-Pay. Any money left from paying Bella's expenses will be set aside to use for any other special needs Leos that come into LIN for help. Thanks for your assistance!
