Maximillion was going to die on May 9th. 🥺 He was purchased from a backyard breeder in a “parking lot” deal. After a couple of days with his new family it became clear something was very wrong with him. Max has a Persistent Right Aortic Arch, causing secondary Megaesophagus. Much like Sally, our recent Golden Retriever baby with ME, Max cannot eat like normal dogs and was regurgitating his meals and water. Unlike Sally’s case, surgical repair IS possible for Max, (although it’s risky.) Max was in poor condition. He is skinny and dehydrated. On Monday he was not eating and very lethargic. Max’s owners opted for euthanasia for this 8-week old baby. Thankfully, our docs intervened and called us to step in and take over Max’s care 🥰 we’ve had Max for about 36 hours. He is eating well (at an incline, with 30 minutes of upright time in the puppy ‘pack-pack’ immediately following meals.) He has gained half a pound and his puppy energy is coming back ❤ We are working directly with the surgical dept at Colorado State University for Max’s surgery. The doctor at CSU has said that, “Prognosis for PRAA puppies is variable, especially with Frenchies, but a good long-term outcome is possible.” We are hopeful. 💜
This surgery typically costs from $5000 to $6000. We are graciously being offered the surgery at a reduced rate as part of CSU’s SAST program 🙏. Now, we need to raise the estimated $1500‐$2000 it is going to cost to have this surgery performed. That estimate does not include consults or follow-up care.
💜 We have been slammed hard with medical cases lately. The cost can be overwhelming, but these animals literally had NO OTHER OPTIONS. So, we are honored to step in and be the HOPE that they need.

**** NOTE ****  We are NOT accepting applications or inquiries about Max. He is not available for adoption at this time, nor anytime in the near future. We just want to get him healthy right now. Thank you!
