Banjo Now

Banjo Now


n January 2011 one year old Banjo had been left to fend for himself on the streets of Phoenix.
Picked up by Maricopa County Animal Control, he was starving, loosing hair,
he had sore feet that were cracked and bleeding.
Despondent and non responsive to caretakers,  he refused to even eat.
AZBHR rescued him the day he was to be put down.

Banjo was seen by our vet at a mere 30 lbs he was extremely ill and needed to see a cardiologist.
An ultra sound it was determined that he had a hole in his heart.  This was causing a
large amount of blood to be pumped into his left ventricle.  His young heart was
unable to pump all of the blood back out.

Concerns remained high for Banjo but the vets put him on a heart medication, plus 4 additional
medications and a special home remedy soak for his torn up feet.

Thanks to the great care AZBHR has given him Banjo has thrived.  He will always
be an Angel dog as we don't know when we might loose him.  As his pack cell level
goes into the 60s he would be in danger of heart failure.  He is monotored on a
regular basis with blood tests and ultra sounds.  This sweet boy has bonded with his
foster dad and he is now loved and charished as every Basset should be.

When asked about his rough housing with his new found canine friends, the vet cardiologist said, “let him enjoy being a dog”.

Thank you AZBHR
