Update from foster mom: This catahoula leopard dog weighed in from 17 pounds at rescue to now 44 pounds. She is the sweet dog I have ever had. She is learning to trust people again but very slow to trust men. We are working on that.. (9/10/16) We were contacted by a lady in Alba named Pamela who's neighbor found this girl on the side of the road in Alba yesterday. Pamela asked her neighbor to hold on to her last night and she would get her this am. Once Pamela got her she started reaching out for help. We had three people reach out to us within a short amount of time after seeing her post and asked for us to help her. Pamela, the lady who contacted us and had picked her up this morning said if we could help her she would foster her. Pamela had named the tiny girl Alice. (Alice in Wonderland, because she was wondering around). I met Pamela in Mineola and picked up Alice and got her to the vet. She is 21 lbs and best guess is she is about 2 years old. Covered in fleas and ticks. Fecal was positive for hooks and whips. Heartworm test showed she was Positive. Her blood was as thin as kool-aid. Too weak to vaccinate so we are giving her a day with fluids and food for emergency care and will re-evaluate her tomorrow. She has not been spayed but she has a while before we can do that to allow her to heal and put some weight on and be healthy again. She is going to need the works, a few days in the vet clinic for care and we are going to do all we can to get her healthy and feeling good again. She will not be available for adoption as it will take some time to treat her for heartworms and have her spayed my she is a very frail girl but so so sweet. She just melts me when I look at her pitiful little face. She was so desperate for help we just couldn't turn away from helping her.
