Ruca (pronounced Rooka) is an almost 11 year old adorable, sweet boy who sadly found himself dumped by the his family at a central Oregon shelter on September 1st.
The shelter called and were desperate to find rescue for Ruca. He has suffered years, a lifetime possibly, of neglect which leaves him in a bad spot. As much as they would like to, the shelter could not provide necessary care and did not want to have to euthanize this sweet boy who they described as “a delight”. They reached out for help and of course, in true Second Chance Cocker Rescue fashion, we could not say no. We immediately drove 7 hours to pick him up.
Ruca is pretty much a mess. Top priority is his ears. He has the worst ears I’ve ever seen, they are so infected and literally swollen shut from untreated chronic ear infections. He is going to need significant, long term , expensive medical care for his ears, (the shelter vet fears he will need surgical removal of both ear canals) and has a mouth full of rotten teeth. He also has crystals in his urine that will need follow up.
Despite all his discomfort and suffering he is truly one of the friendliest dogs we have ever met. He has a cheerful, friendly personality and we hope to be able to get him the treatment he needs and deserves. Please help us help Ruca get his second chance at a pain free life. We can’t do this without your help!
