Introducing Humber - 10 yrs, Male

No applications please
Very sad story.
We were alerted by a member of the public to a 10-year-old male dog in need. He was living outside in a shed 😢😢😢
The Phoenix team quickly swung into action and one of our regional coordinators made a six-hour round trip to bring this beautiful boy into the safety of the Phoenix fold. Humber has something to say, "I have arrived at my new foster home and want to say thank you to my foster mom for everything she has done for me so far as getting me quickly to the vets to start my treatments and giving me a warm sofa to cuddle on. I can’t remember the last time I had such luxuries. I have been living in a shed for a very long time".
Humber suffered some neglect in his previous home. He faces some work to get both his skin and ears back to normal, possibly including surgery. They are pretty crusty, yeasty and sore and there were possibly a few untreated infections in his prior life. Humber will also need to gain a bit of weight.
Update after a visit to the vet:
So, we have fleas for sure and very poorly ears. He's not deaf but may be hard of hearing. His paws are pink to red and claws are bloody at the part that comes out the toe. The pads on his feet are totally smooth, worn on patches and he is showing worn patches on his leg joints where he's been sitting in his own urine. He was stained, and still is after a bath, from the back of his hind legs all the way to his feet. He seems to have blocked anal glands and has explosive diarrhoea. He has cuts and open wounds all over him, with a lot to his head. He has an open wound on the bridge of the nose. Humber purrs when fussed but will only allow gentle touching on his chest and back, although not on his head or back end. He was so, so, thirsty and very dehydrated.
Humber’s medical care will be quite expensive. If you would like to help this adorable old boy please donate.🐾🐾🧡
