Col. Potter Looks Out for Rooney!

Written by a CP Intakes Coordinator

Rooney, a 12 lb, 4-5 year old Wheaten Male

Please welcome a very lucky little boy, CP's Rooney!  This 4-5 year old, cute as a button, 12 lb little boy was picked  up as a stray by a high volume shelter but was never reclaimed by his owner.  It was the 11th hour when CP learned that Rooney's hold time was up and he needed rescue NOW or he would be euthanized.  After working around the clock to find a local rescue group that could pull him for us, CP was able to quickly move Rooney to safety in the nick of time!

Upon examination by CP's veterinarian, it was determined that Rooney had a condition where his lower eyelid curls inward and the hair scratches the cornea.  Rooney's left eye is scarred, and the vision is impaired.  While Rooney will undergo a surgical procedure to correct his eyelid, he will need continued monitoring and may still be at risk of losing his left eye.  Rooney will be examined and monitored by a canine eye specialist.  

Rooney is looking for a bright future!
All through this, enduring the pain and aggravation that this condition has caused Rooney, with all the poking and prodding and testing of his eye, this little boy has remained friendly and gentle, as if he knows that he has found his guardian angel in CP and that we are here to help him find a happily ever after.  

Please help Col. Potter make all Rooney's dreams come true!  If you would like to donate toward Rooney's medical expenses, please send your check with a note for Rooney #6335 and mail it to:
