My husband and I saw a listing from our local animal shelter a few weeks ago. "Picard" needed a new home. He had cancer. It sounded like they were just searching for a home for him to live out his life. We had fostered dogs, mostly Pugs, for years. Having myself been diagnosed with cancer last year, we knew we had to give Picard a home for however long he had left. Mister Petey Picard became ours a few weeks ago. He's wonderful! He had cancer (mct), he's deaf, and his kidneys aren't functioning well. My friend who has Boxers thinks that he's mixed with another breed. Will post pictures when they allow it!
