Paddington is a young boy in need of a medical foster or a committed adopter. Paddington has not just one but TWO bone-related problems -- Panosteitis and Hypertrophic Osteodystrophy (HOD). Panosteitis involves inflammation of the long bones of the legs, and is often called growing pains. Thankfully, pups usually grow out of this problem as they develop and mature. Treatment is basically just good food and pain management. HOD also involves inflammation of the front leg bones, just a different area. Again, treatment involves good food and pain management, plus plenty of rest, with restricted activity. We hope Paddington will grow out of this condition as well, but the vet warned us that there are no guarantees.
Paddington needs a nice quiet home where he can enjoy life without wanting to get rambunctious and play with another puppy or young dog. He gets along well with other animals, so if you have a nice calm adult dog (this sounds like most Pyrs, right?) who has no interest in playing with a pup, Paddington could be an easy addition to your home.
If you can foster, or if you are interested in making Paddington a permanent member of your family, please send an e-mail to BARN@lonestarmail.net, or complete the application on our website: https://www.bluebonnetrescue.org/info/adoption . This sweet young boy deserves the best care we can provide, and we hope you will help us do exactly that.
