UPDATE (Jan)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!
Please consider donating toward the Baker's Dozen Pups. They are going to need a lot of high quality puppy food, puppy pads, toys, shampoo, and once healthier, vaccinations and spay/neuter. We are expecting their care to be close to $2,000 and every penny is a blessing and cherished gift. Donations can be made to PayPal at forbellessake.org or via our Amazon wishlist! Thank you!
If interested in meeting and potentially adopting, please complete the adoption application located at forbellessake.org. Adoption fee is $175. All residents are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and microchipped as well as other medical needs cared for.
*Breeds cannot be guaranteed. We have no history of these puppies.
*fenced yard is required if a yard is present. If no yard, leash law and access to a dog park is required for adoption*
*No resident is guaranteed housetraining as we focus on major behavioral and medical rehabilitation. Basic training is also a great way for an adopter to bond with their adopted family member. Additionally, a dog displaying housetrained behaviors in rescue can regress in a new environment and routine.
