Rescue

Our rescue partner Animal Pad, in partnership with Keeping Finn, made a trip down to Mexico to help dogs in need. They came to the aid of an old black lab who had been abandoned at a property – alone – for over six years. The lab, Morgan, was kept alive by neighbors feeding him kibbles through the fence. Despite his isolation, he’d bring his most prized possession to the fence for passerby’s to play with him. An old, dirty, crushed up water bottle he’d ask strangers to toss for him so he could happily fetch it.

Freedom Ride

Keeping Finn and Animal Pad obtained legal permission to spring the lab from the backyard and gave Morgan his first taste of freedom in six years. The rescue loaded him up and brought him back to the U.S. They made sure his special water bottle was in tow.

Shelter

Morgan was taken to Animal Pad across the boarder and loved on by every single person there. “He was hugged, kissed, and shown affection the way he should have been every day for the past 6 years, and our entire team loved him hard to make up for all the time he missed out on,” said staff at Animal Pad. “Despite being by himself for so long, he’s a good black lab who loves people and loves fetch.”

Medical Challenges

After moving into his foster home, Morgan got a medical workup. Just as this old guy’s life was beginning, he was diagnosed with a mast cell tumor – cancer. He is undergoing chemotherapy to treat it.

“Morgan is always a star patient at the vet, but he was especially adorable during his first chemo session as he held his favorite ball in his mouth the entire time. We call it his emotional support ball. After chemo, he asked his oncology team to play a quick game of fetch and they happily obliged. His vet team, like everyone who meets Morgan, sees his special. It’s impossible not to.”

Foster

Morgan is currently with the perfect foster home – a place with humans who love him as much as he deserves. He has a foster sister who is the spitting image of him, and they get along so well. Morgan is a happy-go-lucky guy who is a puppy in a senior’s body. He’s got a lot of fight left in him and an entire team of people behind him to support him in his battle against cancer.

Mia

Pupdates

Shelter

Our partner Real Good Rescue found Mia in the South LA shelter and couldn’t leave without her. She scooped her up and headed directly to the vet for a complete evaluation of Mia’s health.

Vet

Mia’s bloodwork came back showing signs of infection and bacteria, both in her skin and as a UTI. She also had numerous masses all over her body that need a thorough checking. One mass on her foot was diagnosed as having cancerous soft tissue sarcoma. She had successful surgery removing the cancer on her foot, and she got to keep all her toes. Sarcoma is tricky – it can come back and will need to be continually removed to make sure it doesn’t spread to other areas of Mia’s body.

While Mia was under anesthesia for the cancer removal, she also got her teeth taken care of. She had a handful of rotten teeth that were extracted, giving her a sweet smile now.

Foster

This petite lady is approximately 3 years old, 45 lbs, super friendly, has loved all people and dogs that she’s met. She’s also very wiggly and looking for a home to call her own.

Willa

Pupdates

Shelter

Willa was found as a stray, running down the street chasing a car that is believed to be responsible for dumping her. She’s a super wiggly and friendly dog with good spirits despite her hard experience.

It is hard to get a good picture of Willa because she’s so wiggly and happy

Vet

She’s in good health other than being heartworm positive, which is treatable and preventable. Willa needs the medication to support her condition, to get spayed, then she’s available for adoption!

Foster

She’s currently in a foster home while she recovers from heartworm and awaits her spaying. She’s being spoiled with all the pets and toys she deserves until her forever family comes along.

Shelter

Little Lynnie was an owner surrender to Chicago Animal Control, who gave her over to One Tail at a Time to help. She came in with bad fur matting and was in desperate need of a cleanup.

Vet

While at the vet, she got a much needed haircut and evaluation. It became apparent that once her eyes were visible, there were issues. Lynnie can’t produce tears, which is causing painfully dry eyes. She needs to see a specialist and get special eye meds to help with her tear production.

Foster

According to One Tail at a Time, “Lynnie is the sweetest dog ever, loves to sunbathe and be perfect.”

Flamingo

Pupdates

Shelter

Bastrop County Animal Services contacted Austin Humane Society about taking this little girl on as a special medical case. It was evident Flamingo had issues with her rear right leg and was in pain. She refused to put weight on it and is very sensitive to being touched on it – for good reason.

Vet Visit

Flamingo’s hind right kneecap is broken and is twisted around to the inside of the knee, instead of sitting on top of it. The vet believes she suffered a fracture which healed incorrectly. She also has some flaky skin and a callus on her broken leg. Flamingo’s medical support staff recommends amputating her leg to give her the best chance at a pain-free life.

Foster

Once this little bird gets her leg amputated, she’ll recover in a medical foster home, where she’ll wait for her forever family to adopt her! She’ll need to wait for her incision to heal and her adopter may need to take her in for a re-check, but the cost of all of her care for the leg is covered by the Foundation.

Shelter

Bingo was brought to the shelter as a stray. Animal control noted he was easy to catch because he struggled to put weight on his back leg.

From the shelter staff: “B-I-N-G-O is his name-o! Bingo can only be described as the life of the party. He loves kissing faces and playing with other dogs. Bingo is obsessed with toys, social interaction and beds that are made for dogs 30lbs lighter than he is!”

Vet Visit

After a thorough checkup from the vet, Bingo was diagnosed with a severe hip injury that needs surgical correction. He has severely limited mobility because of this injury and without correction, he will continue to face those challenges. “He can’t run as far or as fast he wants and it’s driving him bonkers. It’s so heartbreaking to see such a social boy be so limited,” said shelter staff.

He’s scheduled for an orthopedic surgery called FHO (Femoral Head Osteotomy), which will put him back on all fours in 1-3 weeks.

Foster

Once Bingo gets his surgery, he’ll stay in medical boarding for a few days to control for pain and provide him a quiet environment to recoup. Then he’ll move to a foster home while he does physical therapy to help him gain back lost muscle.

Shelter

Pinky is a little pittie puppy who was hit by a car. She broke her right rear hip, as well as her left rear knee and ankle. When she was brought to the shelter for help, the vet also found that she had a hookworm case so severe that the vets “were unable to count them all on the microscope slide.” Hookworms cause diarrhea, vaginitis and other symptoms, which poor Pinky is also suffering from.

From her caretakers at Austin Humane Society: “Pinky is the sweetest little girl! She’s a little shy and scared of her new surroundings but is eager for belly rubs and head scratches. When you scratch her head, her eyes immediately close in bliss! She prefers to eat her meals straight out of your hand (can you say spoiled?!) and is as gentle as they come. She constantly wags her tail and asks for attention when she’s in the same room as you!”

Vet Visit

Pinky’s x-rays confirmed that she had suffered multiple fractures in her hind leg and hip. Pinky will undergo surgery to repair the ankle and knee as well as a “Femoral Head Osteotomy (FHO)” to help give Pinky a chance at mobility with her right hip as she gets bigger.

“Despite being in a lot of pain, Pinky is so gentle and sweet. She is affectionate and loving, constantly searching for attention! She has very soulful eyes and likes to look directly into your yours!”

– Veterinary Technician Jenn, who assisted in Pinky’s veterinary workup as the primary technician

Foster

She is staying with partners of Austin Humane who provide orthopedic care, who will look after her before, during and after the surgery. As soon as she’s cleared to leave the hospital, Pinky will go into medical foster rather than going back to the shelter to rest and recover.

Shelter

Fotis arrived at Austin Pets Alive! with the majority of his tail missing and an infection in what was left of it. He also had mobility and nerve issues in his back limbs. Commonly known as “tail pull injury,” he had trauma to his tail that caused damage to the nerves in his lower back, which also control his hind limbs. Because of this, Fotis has urinary and bladder issues which need medical support. The shelter watched Fotis closely and helped manually express his urine when needed. Fotis needed surgery to help repair his tail and clear the infection.

Though the shelter environment was stressful to Fotis, he quickly earned the love of everyone on staff with his calm, sweet, gentle demeanor.

Vet Visit

Fotis underwent the necessary surgery for his tail. The bad news: he lost the remainder of the infected parts of his tail. The good news: he now has a bunny tail and it is very, very cute.

The vet also checked out some superficial wounds, removed some ticks, and evaluated his hind limbs. He was diagnosed as incontinent and will have lifelong urinary retention issues, which will need medical support and supervision. Daily urine output is important to monitor in incontinent dogs, as they are more prone to urinary tract infections (something we definitely don’t want for Mr. Fotis). The vet also advised that dogs with “tail pull” injuries can also be prone to constipation, so Fotis will be monitored for that as well.

Foster

Fotis is waiting for his forever home, but in the meantime he is well-loved by his foster family. “Behaviorally, Fotis is a dream dog,” his foster mom says. “It has been such a joy to watch his personality blossom as he has gotten more comfortable in our home. Fotis is incredibly laid back, very affectionate and just all round good natured. He currently lives in a foster home with two human siblings under the age of five and one dog sibling. Fotis’ favorite activities are watching tv with his family, cuddling, taking chill walks in the park, and visiting with friends.”

And… Fotis knows magic! He can make his ears disappear.

Topo Chico

Pupdates

Shelter

Topo Chico lived outside on a tether with several other dogs at his original home in Texas. He was surrendered to a rescuer, who helped transport him to One Tail at a Time. When he arrived, he tested positive for heartworms and had developed a severe heart murmur. This sweet little pup also has blood in his urine, so he needs a lot of medical support.

Freedom Ride

“Through it all, he has been the sweetest little guy. He rode all the way from Houston to Chicago without a peep!”

Vet Visit

The poor guy had a cardiologist consultation and the vet found out that his heartworm had progressed to a fatal stage called Caval Syndrome. CS occurs when a mass of adult heartworms is hindering the normal blood flow through the heart.

Surgical extraction of the blockage became immediately necessary if there is to be a reasonable chance for recovery. He was rushed to the University of Illinois where 11 adult worms were surgically extracted from his heart. He’s currently in a foster home resting and recovering.
