The Story

BRBR was contacted on Wednesday February 17, 2016 by a Vet's Office in Suffolk, VA regarding Diesel Jones. Diesel Jones is a 6 month old male Boxer who had an obstruction. He had been vomiting and had limited bowel movements since Sunday February 14, 2016. The family could not afford the surgery that would save his life. They signed Diesel Jones over to BRBR so that we could step in & provide the medical care he needed.
Diesel underwent a 3 hour surgery Wednesday evening to remove a fabric type material from his intestines. Diesel was weaned from IV meds to oral meds the day after surgery & his vitals are good & he has been resting comfortably. He still has a long recovery ahead of  him. We are so grateful that we were able to step in & help Diesel before things became even more serious than they already were. We are thankful to his foster mom for stepping in to foster him & provide a place for him to recover.
Obstruction surgeries are expensive. We are looking at $3,000.00 or more for Diesel's care so far. We hope that he will be able to be transported to his foster mom this weekend. BRBR appreciates everything our supporters do for us! We could not save the Boxers that we are able to save if not for you all!

2/28/16 Diesel Jones went to the vet on Saturday & was able to have his staples removed. He had 41 staples! That's a lot of staples for a little boy. He was updated on his vaccinations & he had not lost any weight since before the surgery. He does have hookworms, so he is also being dewormed. DJ can now start transitioning to doggy kibble which is great news! DJ was a big hit with the vet staff, as they all said he was so cute! Even when he peed in the floor! But sometimes a little guy has to go when he has to go!
Thank you all for your prayers & support!

When most puppies his age are running and playing, Diesel Jones is sleeping in a crate with an e-collar. While his foster home is giving him as much love and attention as they can, healing is the first priority. He is currently eating several special meals a day to help getting his digestive system healed.   While out of his crate, he gets plenty of love and snuggles. Over the next couple of weeks, he'll get the staples out, put on some weight, and transition to kibble, and start playing again! 
We can't wait to see this boy happy and being a normal puppy again.
