Royston, Roi to his pals, is from a backyard breeder & will suffer irreparable brain damage & death if not helped.
Roi has Hydrocephalus and a quadrigeminal cyst.
He had an MRI san and assessment, on 17th February, costing £1,300. Confirming that he needs life saving surgery, to remove the cyst, and fit him with a shunt to drain the fluid.
This will cost a further £5,000 - £5,000
I know itís a lot of money to spend on one dog, but can you look him in the eyes & tell him his life is not worth it? - I certainly canít. It really is worth the effort to get his operation done. Roi is one of those once in a lifetime dogs that will make someoneís life complete, he just needs a little help now.
He is in the care of Lizzie's Barn Sanctuary in West Wales. Fionna who runs the Sanctuary has determined to help this little mite,. She already makes enormous sacrifices to help the dogs in the Sanctuary & goes without the basic things in life that most people take as their right.Has spends every penny she has & many more she doesn't on helping the dogs. Her unique way with the dogs is a joy to see & watching once distrustful & traumatised dogs with injured & sick blossom in her care is wonderful. She forms such a special bond with every dog she meets & they shine towards her. The Sanctuary struggles financially because they are prepared to take in on elderly, disabled, traumatised & dogs other sanctuary's reject.
Roi's story would also make a wonderful feature for any TV show/ magazine or newspaper article.
