I've worked with CRUSA for 11 years now,
and I have to say I have NEVER fostered a dog in this poor health.
Obviously, this was going to take more than a good bath
and decent food, so we are going the vet at 5:40 p.m.
Jackie & FosterMom Andréa say I'm gonna be REALLY CUTE when I am all better!
At this time, Sadee is in quarantine in a large wire crate
in our aire-conditioned garage, until she is free of fleas
(she was given CAPSTAR at the shelter) and I'm assured
her dermatitis isn't something that could affect the Skrenninger Quartet.
Sadee seems to be a laid-back girl;
walks on leash in her new harness and rests quietly in her crate.
She chews and scratches, something that will end tonight, I hope!
I CANNOT IMAGINE SOMEONE LEAVING A DOG
TO GET INTO THIS CONDITION BEFORE SEEKING HELP.
(Oh, did I mention that she is another Big Galoot who weighs 21 pounds??
Why do I get all the big ones???)
Oh my goodness . . . poor baby. It took a long time for her to get in that condition,
so it appears they weren't taking care of her at all!
Lucky girl is in good hands now. Better that they left her!
Looks like Sadee's going to need a lot of TLC to get back
into some kind of good health. Poor pup must be so miserable!
She was miserable on the drive to Andréa's house.
she was constantly chewing her paws. Her eyes are terrible;
her ears are discharging stuff. I am so thankful we have her.
She is a beautiful color and sweet, sweet face!
How sad. I can only imagine how long this poor baby suffered,
between the skin, fleas and eyes. So glad she is in rescue.
She looks like a project, but will be a cute pup.
Poor new rescue. How sad for her. At least her suffering is
on the mend now that she's safe with you.
I'm sure SweeTea will make her feel welcome. A new project dog.
That brought tears to my eyes. I hope that all goes well for her.
Thank you, Jackie, for bringing her to CRUSA, and to Andréa.
My heart goes out to this poor sweet dog for what she has been through.
She is in safe and loving hands now and on her way to recovery,
although I am sure it will be a long hard road.
Thanks to all who helped her along her way.
