About Me

Hi this is Scrub and me.  Scrub is 17 years old and is a mixed breed. About 18 months ago he developed vestibular disease where dogs lose their sense of balance. 90 per cent of dogs recover back to normal within the month, but  Scrub has not. He has slowly lost more functions but mentally is alert and he has a big appetite. I usually am up with him most nights either because he falls and gets stuck, goes potty in the house or is anxious. Luckily I met Travis about a month ago and he showed me ways to deal with the potty problem. This has greatly removed some of the stress dealing with an aging dog. Scrub is starting to develop some other issues, but he has been a little warrior his whole life and we will deal with them until we can't. Travis is a nice guy who really wants to help and I am lucky to have met him.  Jim

Great photo. Scrub is very lucky to have such a caring and compassionate owner! Keep up the good work Jim and thank you for caring enough to learn what it takes to give Scrub the best possible quality of life.
