I needed surgery real bad.  I had these stones in my bladder and they hurt me and made it hard for me to go potty.  Since there are lots of different kinds of bladder stones, the nice vet had to send mine out to a lab to find out how to keep me from getting them again.  My bill came to well over $600 by the time I had the urine test, x-rays, surgery and then the stone test all done.  Now my adoption fee won’t even come close to helping me pay this bill.  If you have a soft spot for little black and white tzu boys, please consider donating some money for me!

 

Meanwhile, if you are looking for a spunky and happy little boy who doesn’t act his age, apply to adopt me.  I am ready for my own home.  And don’t worry about keeping me from getting more bladder stones – it won’t be very difficult.  I get some Calcium Citrate every day to keep them away and it costs less than $5 a month.

I get along with other dogs but I haven’t met any cats or really young children in my foster home.
