Buddy came to Catoosa Citizens for Animal Care, (CCAC) in severe condition. He was anemic from blood loss, grossly underweight, and his entire body was infested with fleas. To make matters worse he had tape worms and was vomiting rocks that he was eating to survive. He was also unable to walk properly due to his severely disfigured back legs. His foster mom wasn't sure if Buddy would improve and it seemed that he had given up. Buddy was immediately taken in for vet care. He was diagnosed with grade IV medial luxating patella, a condition in which the patella, or kneecap, dislocates or moves out of its normal location. His condition worsened over time. Buddy also needed several dental extractions, to remove infected teeth, but had to take antibiotics before having the procedure. 

Within six hours of creating Buddy's campaign on PoundWishes he not only met, but exceeded his goal. He was able to get his dental extractions, as well as, a new doggie wheel chair. He is now happily rolling around with his new found mobility!
