Ebby is ready for some love and care! This approximately eight-year-old Plott Hound mix arrived at the Pocahontas County Animal Shelter in West Virginia along with another Hound on December 6th. The dogs were brought in as strays, although it was highly suspected that the owner dumped these boys. Ebby, who was also known as Ebenezer, had been very neglected and was in need of medical care in various areas, including neutering, dental and a tumor removal. Could this poor old Hound find some kindness now that he had been dumped at the end of the hunting season?
De Anna Lynn, through her Advocates for Shelter Animals of Pocahontas Co., WV (ASAP), was successful in finding a potential rescue for him. The Highland County Humane Society (HCHS) in Virginia wanted to help Ebby if they could find some assistance for his medical costs. Corena Huffman with HCHS contacted RADAR on December 13th, asking for our help for Ebby. We especially love the seniors and so of course we agreed to help Ebby. He had blood testing, neutering, dental work, tumor removal and a biopsy all done on December 30th. We received good news on January 9th: Ebby’s leg tumor was benign!
Ebby is a very shy and sensitive guy. He’s fine around kids. He is very food motivated and enjoys treats and toys. He hasn’t had an easy life and this does show in food guarding behavior with other dogs. All are hopeful for Ebby to relax out of the shelter and enjoy the years left to him, as this sweet brindle dog deserves the best. Be sure to view more photos in Ebby’s gallery.
RADAR paid $650 all of testing, neutering, dental treatment, tumor removal and biopsy costs for Ebby.
It is only with your help that we can cover our costs of helping Ebby. Please donate to his Fund now!
