This is Umka, a very cute and friendly old doggy. Umka loves people and is very well on a leash. In spite of the terrible conditions, he has not lost hope to become a favorite pet. Umka has been living in the shelter for many years and he has serious problems with his spine. Umka is suffering from severe pain and it is difficult for him to walk. Without treatment, a lingering and painful death awaits him.
The shelter is not the best place for a quick recovery; therefore it was decided to move Umka to a temporal foster home. There Umushka felt better. Of course age makes itself felt, but in the shelter the situation was critical.
Presumably Umka has pinched vertebral disc. After final diagnosis Umka will probably require surgery and treatment. We will be very grateful if you can help Umka to get healthy again! We also invite people who can help financially, we lack 1 500 rubles per month. Even one-time small financial presents are very helpful!
