Rhodesian Ridgeback

Large  |  Male

Hillsdale, IN


Mikey was surrendered by his owners when they could no longer care for him. His eyes were so swollen and goopy he could barely see out of them. His owners said he had allergies. It may have started off as allergies, but his poor eyes were so inflamed his eyelids had rolled inward and his eyelashes were scratching his corneas. The shelter tried raising money to fix his eyes but ended up covering most of the cost of surgery since he could not wait any longer or he would end up blind. We hope to continue to raise funds to pay off his vet bill!
Mikey is now feeling MUCH better and you can tell by the smile on his face! He will need to stay on allergy medicine (benadryl works just fine for him) to prevent his eyes from becoming inflamed again. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines and LOVES kids and other dogs. He is 4 years old and weighs 63 lbs. You really could not find a better dog than Mikey. Now that his eyes are on the mend he is ready to find his loving forever family that will give him the life he deserves--pain and itch free!!! Come meet this sweet boy today and see why shelter staff could not give up on making his life more comfortable.
