10/2/09: PETUNIA NEEDS SOME TLC TO BLOOM
We received an email from a large, highly crowded kill shelter regarding two boxers who were on death row. The dogs needed our help ASAP as they were facing imminent death through no fault of their own. We knew we had to save them.
One year old Petunia and Constantine were not deemed adoptable by the shelter. Petunia came into the shelter with untreated démodéctic mange. Her family dropped her off because they said they could not afford the medical treatment. We could not leave her behind to be killed.
Petunia’s mange will be evaluated as soon as we can schedule a vet appointment . According to the shelter, Petunia needs some training and TLC. She is already spayed and up-to-date on shots. We are not sure how she is with other dogs, cats or older children.
We will know more once Petunia has settled into her new foster home and will be sending an update as soon as possible.
We would like to give a big “Thank You” to the rescue coordinators at the shelter who went above and beyond to get Constantine and Petunia to safety. We greatly appreciate the extra effort they gave to get both dogs into our rescue program.
09/27/09: Foster home needed. More information coming soon! Petunia is currently receiving some long awaited medical treatments for mange and ear infections. Special needs, if any, to be determined.
