Brooke, Romulus’ owner, contacted us about helping with the astronomical expenses of treating a right foreleg sarcoma (cancer) in her beloved 8-year-old Doberman. Since the day she adopted him from an agency in Missouri he had been her constant companion, and her focus was to alleviate as much of his pain as possible so that he could maintain his quality of life. As is common in these types of osteosarcomas, the only way to alleviate the pain is by amputation the affected limb, and quickly; a delay of even a few days can make a major impact on the success of the surgery.
DIP agreed to assist with the expenses, and Romulus had the surgery, which allowed Brooke to enjoy the quality time with Romulus that was her goal.
UPDATE: She wrote us recently to let us know that Romulus suffered a recurrence of the osteosarcoma and she lost him a couple of weeks ago. We are happy we could help them have an extra year of really good time together. Our condolences to Brooke.
