‘Cherro’ is a 5-year-old Maltese/Shihtzu Dog who is loved by Brooke her family more than words can describe. Over the last 6 years life for the family has greatly changed, homelessness and ‘Cherro’ missing for weeks just to mention a couple of the traumatic times.

Eventually when the family found ‘Cherro’ thanks to being handed into the local council, the “rock in the family” was back where she belonged giving the family routine and courage. The family noticed that the young dog was very ill, and getting her to the vet ASAP was a must. The Lort Smith Animal Hospital diagnosed ‘Cherro’ with plyometra that would need immediate surgery, which is very common in young female dogs that are not desexed.

PMC were contacted to help manage the case to get the beautiful girl home safely.“We have only just gotten ourselves settled into a home after reoccurring homelessness as a family, and on our feet again with returning to school, getting our life back on track and the thought of loosing ‘Cherro’ our family member, is un fathomable, she is an irreplaceable member of our family. With a very heavy heart, I’m begging for help.” Brooke said to our team.

Thanks to the Lort Smith team for the work and help they have given to PMC and ‘Cherro’. Cherro is now home and although she’s a bit stinky and desperately needs a groom we are told, she is soaking up the love and Brooke, her mum and brother couldn’t feel more grateful to PMC for the assistance and help. Mental well-being can so often be helped by our pets and we are relived to have been contributed.

Franky is a 38-year-old single father; much like many single parents, he finds the costs of living sometimes beyond his means. Living in Maryborough with his 5-year-old daughter Esther the pair of them love their dogs dearly, two blue heelers named ‘Chachi’ and ‘Joanie’. ‘Joanie’ the eldest of the two pups is now 7.

She is the closest thing that young Esther has to a Mum,” Franky said through tears after being awake all night worried sick, “I feel like it’s my fault and I should have acted earlier but I didn’t have the money.”

Franky didn’t have the money to have ‘Joanie’ Desexed and she developed a life-threatening infection in her uterus that needed urgent surgery. The family is now back together thanks to some quick work from Team PMC managing the case from the get-go, and of course, the Maryborough vet clinic Led by Dr. Joel. Esther is one happy little girl again. Hopefully, we can spread this story out so others understand why it is so important for your dogs’ health to be de-sexed but also vital for the community.
