My name is Buckeye and I am a very special boy! I am a seven year old, 30 pound beagle who found myself in a shelter after I was diagnosed with cancer. I have a very rare form of cancer, so rare that the veterinarian cannot even give an estimated survival time. The cancer is not treatable, but manageable with surgery if my tumor grows back. It has not metastasized, and my quality of life is great – I am happy, adventurous, and I feel very good. Radiation was not a good care option, given quality of life versus amount of time my survival would be extended.
While my health is not declining, and the tumor is not currently growing back, it may return later on. When you meet me, you will have no idea that I am sick. I love to run in the backyard with my foster siblings and I snuggle with my foster parents ALL the time! If I feel like my foster parents are not paying attention to me, I simply hop in their lap to make my presence known! I am fostered with cats, dogs of all sizes and a toddler. I am great in my crate and I have not had any accidents in my foster home. I am looking for a very special family of my own to live out the rest of my days as I still have a lot of love to give! Do you have room in your home and your heart for a special guy like me? Apply today! His adoption fee is $25.
