Tucker does not have an owner. He was born in August in one of the carparks along Jalan Tun Razak, KL. We were in the midst of feeding the dogs when Emma and Christine found him in a critical condition on 20.01.14 after work.
Tucker was born, a mix breed between a mongrel and black retriever, lives in an open area parking lot together with approximately 10 other dogs (1 of his age, and the rest adults). He was born in August and was 1 of the 2 puppies that did not get a forever home.
Tucker was missing during our feeding times for approximately a week, and we had thoughts that he might have been adopted and taken by a kind stranger. However, on 20.01.14, we found him hiding under a car (near feeding place) unwilling to come out or be dragged out. Emma managed to drag him out, and he tried to crawl back under the car but she stopped him and carried him to feeding area to have some food.
Even with food in front of him, Tucker did not even take a bite. We know very well that he hasn’t eaten since he went into hiding. We tried to make him walk, however when he takes one step he fell sideways to the ground. He was refusing food/probably unable to consume. Esther volunteered and took him to the nearby vet in Kuchai Lama immediately, luckily in time before closing.
According to Dr.Lee Wai Wai of Lee Veterinary Clinic, he might have been poisoned and/or attacked. She says that he has Jaundice, weak liver, low blood count and internal bleeding. She immediately put him on drip and medication. It was bad to the extent that the lice on his body was migrating.
He was in the vet from 20/1 to 28/1, approx 9 days, and on 28/1, Dr.Lee confirmed that he was fit to discharge.
Thankfully, immediately we managed to find a fosterer (Jlee) with an empty home for him to stay (away from where he came from – the parking lot) so that he could take medication, rest and recover.
However, on 3/2, after 6 days, Esther found him looking in bad shape again, unable to eat. Esther took Tucker was readmitted to the vet on 4/2.
Currently, Dr Lee says that Tucker has contracted parvo virus and under observation and hospitalization to boost his immunity to fight the parvo.
Currently, Tucker is still in the vet waiting to discharge and we are also pending a new fosterer as the previous empty house is not available for him to stay this round. Dr. Lee says that he is healthy, even though recently he caught flu from other animals staying in the vet.
Tucker is now healthy and has moved from the vet as we found a temporary fosterer, but still looking for adopter.
Anyone who wishes to give Tucker a forever home, kindly give me a call.
Thank you in advance for your kind financial assistance.
