***This is a Courtesy post…This dog is NOT at the PPAW Clinic-Please contact Cindy at 865-680-6572 for information about this boy*****
Sassy was abandoned in a vacant house by her owners in Blount County, Tennessee. (Knoxville Area) She is a 7 year old Boxer-Dalmatian mix who has lived with small dogs and cats. She is fine with older children who know not to pull ears or torment dogs. Due to the neglectful conditions she has been living in she has hair loss around her back end and tail due to flea and food allergies. We have given her a medicated bath which has helped her skin tremendously, a 30 day Nexgard flea & tick pill, a Drontal dewormer and started her on antibiotics to help her skin continue to heal. Our vet did multiple skin scrapes and determined she does not have mange. She is Heartworm negative, has received a rabies shot, DHPP and Bordetella vaccinations and a Heartguard Heartworm preventative. Sassy is spayed as well. Sassy rides very well in the car and just needs a clean, quiet place to live her life and some grain free food to help her skin allergies heal. She is a good girl who didn't deserve the treatment she has received. The pictures taken of her were taken before we gave her a medicated bath and had her toenails trimmed. Just the condition of her toes shows you how neglected she was. (Because of her long nails her toes are sore.) We only want Sassy's life to change for the better. If you have lots of love to give and are willing to open your home and heart to a girl who just needs a break please call Cindy @ (865) 680-6572. She isn't a beauty queen at the moment but with TLC we have every reason to think she will be a pretty girl soon. We do have an application and check vet references for her safety. Thank you!
