Jay Jay

Jay Jay upon arrival.


Jay Jay is an older collie.  He used to work on a farm .  He spent most of his time outside.  He came to us from an older lady who could not manage his coat. She surrendered him with love.

After a couple weeks of grooming at home and then going to the groomer, he is looking and feeling much better.  He has been to the vet and up to date on his vaccinations now.

Jay Jay most recent


Jay Jay had a very large mass on his side that we had removed thanks to donations from our supporters. He has been diagnosed with cancer.  A Fibrosarcoma grade 2. The surgery was not successful in getting a clean margins as the mass was too large and would not have allowed it to be completely closed.
