Some months ago, Buddy (aka Henry) was approved by GGBR for surgery on a torn cruciate ligament in one of his rear legs. However, the surgeon at that time felt that the tear was not severe enough to warrant  invasive surgery. Buddy's leg was recently  evaluated again by the orthopedic veterinarian and surgery to correct the tear was scheduled.  When the pre-op blood draw was done on 11/12/20, it was found that Buddy has a tumor on his thyroid. He then had surgery to remove the tumor, with the plan of having a later surgery to correct the leg tear. Although the surgery to remove the tumor was successful, the prognosis is poor because Buddy has thryroid cancer.  Buddy will not be able to receive the surgery on his leg and he is currrently on pain medication to alleviate discomfort caused by his leg. 
Buddy, who the vet says is approximately 7-8 years old is a very sweet black lab/basset mix who has the misfortune of having poor health. He loves people, is not very interested in most dogs especially big dogs, good with cats, barks a lot, is very loving and basically a good dog. He would be very happy being with  someone willing to adopt him in spite of his illness and a person who would love him for the remainder of his life.  

Special Needs: Buddy has a torn cruciate ligament in one of his rear legs and has thyroid cancer.
