We received this photo with a request to surrender. Initially the answer was not an overwhelming yes, but one foster stood up and begged to at least get him an MRI and understand his needs. She could not look at his seemingly (but not) Photoshop edited picture and not help. After meeting him and realizing he’d bounced through 5 homes in 6 months of life, there was no denying this sweet boy the medical care deserved. Funds for MRI were begged for and received. The MRI revealed he had minimal brain tissue that wasn’t already destroyed. He was living on brainstem and a slight amount of the rear portion of his brain. He is the most severe hydrocelphalus case ever seen by many neurologists. Despite his pain, blurred vision and loss of brain tissue he was still determined and showed his brain was learning to do things the remaining portion of tissue were not designed to do. He can bark without the entire front of his brain which contains the canine speech center. He can sit and learned his name; both functions he should not be able to do. We have named him Einstein because no matter his condition he is determined to find a way to live and learn. We have raised the funding for his shunt surgery, in just a little over a week. On October 24,2012 Einstein will have his surgery. Now we have a new mission; aftercare and giving back. Hundreds of donors helped Einstein. Now Einstein is working to care for other animals that are in similar need who normally would be refused because the cost and survival rates are enormous. He is not only a special boy but intends to be hero for his rescue and for other dogs with such need.
