Tarzan is an approximately 4 year old fawn male who was found as a stray in the Arlington area, along with Jane. He has a previous leg injury that is being evaluated, along with his general medical condition.
Tarzan is not considered cat tolerant.
Because Tarzan's previous injury to his right front leg was not healing at all, he was referred to Dr. Bob Radasch of Dallas Veterinary Surgery Center for a tissue and bone biopsy of the wound. Samples were sent out and are expected to take up to two weeks for complete analysis.
Bone and tissue biopsy results are back and do not show any bacterial or fungal issues at this time. Tarzan is starting a round of new antibiotics and regular dressing and bandage changes in an effort to heal the wound.
Tarzan's leg is finally healed and he is completing his last few days of antibiotics! This boy is ready to find his forever home!
Tarzan is a wonderful boy and has calmed down since we started fostering him. Having been a stray he was a bit wild when he first came to us until he watched the rest of the pack and decided life was good in a home. Now he is one of the most chill dogs in the house. He loves being outside in the sun or inside curled up on a comfortable chair. Tarzan is a collector of things - toys, blankets, shoes - and keeps them on his bed. While not destructive, this habit does remind us to put our shoes away! Tarzan does well on walks, rides well in the car, is a hearty eater, LOVES treats, is a toy shaker and a good sleeper. Tarzan's ideal home would have a yard (though he can be a digger) and another dog to play with, but one that isn't too hyper. Tarzan and our 40 lb cattle dog have fun playing big-mouth-bitey-face and chase; and then take a long nap to recover.
