Dottie was picked up as a stray and landed in a crowded, high kill shelter in LA. To add insult to injury, Dottie had areas of missing fur on her flank, with crusted skin and thinning fur across her hind end.
UPDATE: Dottie needs medicated baths and medication to help rid her of the infected areas on her skin. She would love a foster home while she is recuperating.
