Meet Rex

Add to favourites

Rex is looking for a special home that can facilitate his current and possible future needs and loves him to bits all the while.

This big goof had come into our care with a limp and has been under vet care to get to the bottom of it. It turns out the lameness in his back leg is due to a prolapsed disc in his spine from an old injury. There is no treatment for this but there are great options for maintenance. Rex is starting a joint care supplement, as well as a joint-care diet to help him with mobility now and in the future. It is recommended that he doesn’t do any strenuous activity (long hikes, running) but will still require regular activity to keep healthy and stimulated. In the event he overdoes it, he would likely need some pain control and anti-inflammatory to recover.

In addition to this Rex is currently awaiting TPLO surgery on his hind leg. This surgery will allow him to play pain-free but will require some physio (covered by the shelter!) while he recovers. For this reason, he will need a local adopter as he will need regular vet visits (covered by SPCA) to ensure he is healing correctly.

Rex is the sweetest out there and loves people! He would probably do best as the only dog in the home due to rough play causing potential issues for his old injury, but he wants all the attention on him anyways. Rex is a joy to be around, his goofy demeanour will brighten up your day!
