• Miles is temporarily unavailable
A 10 year old Border Collie mix, Miles is a character, full of personality and curiosity, animated with joy. He likes to check out everything outside, hanging with rescue pals and just enjoying the fresh air. Alert, attentive and so very, very sweet and loving affection, he is a gem! He’s really quite amazing considering he has horribly infected ears from an infection left untreated. The level of pain is extreme and clearly something that has gone on for some time.
His permanent ‘cauliflower ears’ occurred from a hematoma in both ears from trying to ease the pain by rolling and rubbing his ears himself. We’re working to ease his pain with antibiotics, trying a succession of intensive treatments. If we can make progress, it’s possible to avoid ablation surgery which is the removal all of the inner ear canals. This handsome fella is starting to feel some relief from ear meds that were packed into both ears… we are crossing our fingers that this 30 day treatment will negate a surgery! What a sweetheart he is…and so much more content.
Miles was confiscated from his previous home, landing in a VA Animal Control facility where he soon was tearing out his fur from frustration about all the changes in his life. His level of stress from early arrival til now is totally changed… a happysmiling boy! Thankfully, his coat is coming back nicely. He’s grounded back in a reality that makes sense… now we have the ears to solve!!!
