The Story

I am an 8 or 9 years old, 6 lbs big boy. I was rescued with seven of my friends from a backyard breeder who barely took care of us. I spent my life in a metal crate until I was rescued and adopted by my mom, Nina.


At first I was very shy and afraid of going outside, I cowered when my mom would pick me up, and I would only eat my meals when all humans were at a safe distance from me. It only took few days for me to learn to potty outside and walk on a leash. I get very excited when my mom comes home from work and wag my tail and run around. I also enjoy car rides!


Only six weeks after I was adopted I stopped wanting to eat, I got tired and less energetic, lost about a pound of weight and the vet found that something is very wrong with my liver. They decided to keep me in the hospital to figure out what’s wrong with me. I was for four days and my mom visited me every day. 


My bills just for the hospitalization ended up to be $4,000 and my mom has been paying them off as well as buying my medications which cost more that $100 each month. It turned out to be worth it though because after months of TLC and treatment I am doing great and I am the happiest little boy.

We could still use any help though as my next check-up is coming up and my vet visits with all the tests usually cost between $150-200. Any amount will help and be appreciated!



***All extra funds will be used for Tracy’s future care including any future hospitalizations, medications, vet visits and possible surgeries.***

Tracy is still doing well (on "only" five medications now!) and he will have more tests done at the beginning of October. (Keep your fingers crossed please!) He likes to play peek-a boo with his mom and makes everyone who meets him smile. Thank you for caring!

T is doing well. Feeding tube was removed couple days ago as he has been eating enough on his own, in fact his appetite has been great. The meds he is on (six of them!) have been doing wonders. However, they are only treating his symptoms and while some of his blood values have improved, some still suggest something is going on in his little body. The test we had been waiting for came back negative for lymphoma, which would have been the worst case scenario. We will do ultrasound next and if that doesn't tell us what is going on, the next step would be a liver biopsy. We are hoping it is "just" a gallbladder issue and in that case a surgery would fix it. He wags his tail, sometimes tries to steal treats, and loves to be held and petted more than ever. Thank you all who've donated. It WAS worth it. He deserves some good time after the eight-year-long neglect he went through.

Tracy this evening after being fed (he did eat some on his own in the morning!) and after all his meds. Other than eating on his own, he's doing great. The OSU vets are wonderful but he really seems to be so happy to be at home.
