Introducing BILLY THE KID

This gorgeous boy has come into the Phoenix family under extremely sad circumstances which were beyond his family’s control so they reluctantly contacted Phoenix and, you know us, we never shy away from helping a dog in need.

Billy The Kid is 3 years old and unfortunately he suffered a spinal injury. He had surgery which was, unfortunately, not successful and has left him as a paraplegic and doubly incontinent. He needs regular cleaning and nappy changing but don’t for one minute think this condition stops him; it doesn’t! He is an absolute delight with a zest for life, scooting about, playing with his toys and generally enjoying himself.

Billy The Kid came into Phoenix via a road train and, my, he didn’t travel light. He's had some very generous donations of a buggy and some wheels (with which he could give McLaren a run for their money) and these are fab for indoors. However, we have learnt that he needs some off road wheels because he loves his walks so a fund raiser is planned to enable Billy The Kid to get some wheels that will allow him on the walks he clearly loves.

He is currently settling into medical foster with a lovely fur sister and fur brother. We absolutely will not be accepting any applications for him, but we will keep you updated via our Facebook page as it’s clear his going to be busy.

As always we cannot thank our foster family enough and also for the love and care he received prior coming into Phoenix.

We know that our fabulous members will help us reach the fund raiser target for his wheels. If you wish to donate, even the cost of a daily coffee........ every little would help.

Welcome to the Phoenix family Billy The Kid.
