Hermey is a wonderful, FUN old dog. He found himself “stray” in spite of being almost completely blind – we often wonder how do all these old blind dogs end up “lost”? Not only was Hermey blind, he was in truly awful shape. He was matted and stinky and his eyes were badly infected due to long-time untreated dry eye. Hermey went to his foster home and his bi-weekly medicated baths, good diet, and 3 different medications for dry eye began. Unfortunately, tumors on both his prostate and bladder were found during his intake vet exam. There is nothing that can be done to cure him of these tumors so he is being kept comfortable and is taking a medication that will hopefully slow the growth of the bladder tumor. In the meantime, Hermey keeps his foster family smiling and laughing. It turns out he can do some fun tricks and he doesn’t let his vision impairment slow him down whatsoever. We know that Hermey won’t be around for as long as we’d like but Hermey’s foster family is enjoying every day they get to spend with this adorable guy. We like to think that dear Hermey having the time of his life too!
