This sweet little girl is on the road to recovery. She was brought to rescue with 12 others (a true bakers dozen) by a fellow rescuer after being surrendered by their owner. We are so grateful she did surrender to find them the care they needed because they all really needed some help and extra TLC. Little Abelle is the worst off. She is skin and bones, was dehydrated and put on IVs. Her gums were pale and she was full of worms. She is now off of IVs and being fed slowly and often to build her body back up. She has been dewormed twice and has been pooping and vomiting worms for 24 hours. We are working hard to keep their living area clean as they recover and rid their bodies of the parasites. Abelle is named after sweet Abel, the doberman that was laid to rest the day she was saved. We know she is a fighter like he was and we know she will recover. We are told she is about 4 months old but she's the size of an 8 week old. It's ok though. It's only going to get better from here!
