Just one look at these pictures will explain why Stephanie is asking for a little help. Have you ever seen anything like this? We certainly hadn’t, and neither had Stephanie’s doctors. Their best guess is that someone took a branding iron to little Stephanie not just once, but twice – plus she has some other less extensive burns behind her ear.
At 5:01 one evening AZBHR got a call from Pima Animal Control - Stephanie’s mandatory 72 hour hold had expired at 5pm and they wanted to know if we could come and get her. Heck yes we could and did! She went straight to our great vets at VCA in Tucson and was made comfortable and readied for surgery the next day. Stephanie had to undergo extensive surgery to clean up those wounds and cut out all the dead skin and infected tissue, and then be sewn back together – thank goodness for that extra basset skin!
You might think that after such abuse, and having roamed the streets for goodness knows how long that Stephanie would be skittish and untrusting, but in spite of all she’s been through she is the sweetest, friendliest, most playful girl you could imagine. She is estimated to be 18 months old, and she has now had all her shots, is microchipped and spayed, and in a couple of weeks after recovering from surgery she will be looking for her forever home.
