Buddy is our featured pet this month. He is a young Mastiff that was saved from death just in time. At the young age of 10 months it was determined that Buddy had some sort of ortho issue and his owners said they didn't have the money to fix him so they brought him to a vet to be euthanized. The vet contacted the folks at Midwest Mastiff Rescue and how could we resist helping this sweet boy? Buddy has been in foster care with one of our wonderful volunteers for quite some time now. He was seen by one of our vet specialists and we were told to wait it out while Buddy grew some more to see if his issues resolved. We have given it time however he has not gotten better so on 12/1/2010 Buddy is going to the University of Wisconsin Madison to see the ortho specialists there and hopefully come up with a treatment plan to make him better. We are anticipating that Buddy is going to require a very costly surgery however we are committed to his care and will do what it takes to provide for him. We rely on donations from our generous supporters to help us help dogs like Buddy. To donate for his care please go to our website, www.midwestmastiffrescue.org and click on the donate now link.

Midwest Mastiff Rescue, Inc. (MMR) exists to place stray, abandoned or displaced English Mastiffs into approved adoptive homes. We not only accept Mastiffs that can no longer be kept by their owners but we have taken in Mastiffs that were abandoned in a house to die or that have been found living outside chained to a tree and in dire need of immediate veterinary care. Some organizations will only accept "adoptable Mastiffs" but we are here to help the ones that need our help the most. Every life is precious and we are here to make a difference by saving those lives.
