Sully is a red & white boy who was picked up as a stray by a local animal control. Since his owners never came forward, he found himself in BHRG's care. After an MRI, it was determined he has Spinal Arachnoid Diverticulum which is a spinal disorder possibly caused by trauma or genetics. This disorder affects his movement as he is uncoordinated and is ataxic in all 4 legs. Surgery is not an option. He is not in pain from this condition, but it will not get better.

Sully's Sponsors

  • Andrea White - Port Saint Joe, FL. In honor of Scarlet.
  • Sherry Laemmermann - Canandaigua, NY. In honor of Lucy, the basset love of my life.
