Seneca has just come to the rescue on Saturday November 19th. She came with her pups which are now safe in other foster homes and will soon be posted. They all have, and are being treated for demodex, the non-contagious mange. They are all underweight and in poor condition, but with good food and treatment will soon be ready for their new homes. It is hard to say how old Seneca is, but our guess is she is under two and this was her first, and last, litter. She seems a bit confused without her pups to care for, but is learning social skills from her foster brother and sisters. We will get a better idea of her age when she is spayed in a few weeks and will get new pics of her as she improves and regains her health completely. Her little ear has a cut too so we are caring for that as well.

All dogs have the mite that causes mange. A healthy dog's immune system can keep mites under control where we don't even know they exist... but when they are neglected and kept in very poor conditions their immune system gets weakened and they can't fight off an overpopulation of the mites...then they end up like this. Who knows how long they were on their own, but probably for quite a while. What a brave and determined mamma to keep her babies with her and cared for the best she could.
We are so thankful for our fosters, some brand new to the group, who took this little family in. What a blessing fosters are! Consider being one of our fosters for the next dog/puppies in need.
