Bologna Boy

Pupdates

Shelter

Bologna Boy came to the shelter badly burned, after being dumped at a gas station bathroom. The skin on his back was in terrible condition, which has started to peel and pus.

Vet Visit

Bologna Boy’s burned skin will be removed in places it can’t heal, then will be treated with consistent bandage changes and cleanings. Once the skin is more fully healed, he’ll undergo laser therapy to support the burned areas.

Foster

Bologna Boy is super friendly, very affectionate toward his foster family and is very goofy. He’s “always stoked!”

Rescue

Kirby was discovered as a stray wandering around a field. He was only using three of his legs and favored his left hind leg as he limped. When called over, he climbed right into his rescuers car and was happy to leave that field.

Vet Visit

During his initial vet visit, it was discovered that Kirby’s leg was severely fractured. The vet recommended an orthopedic specialist to attempt to repair his leg. In a worst case scenario, if the leg is not operable, it will need to be amputated.

Pupdate 6/17/22

Kirby is going into surgery today! We’ll keep everyone pupdated. He’s been boarding with Deity since he was rescued, and we’re hoping to find him a forever home for him to recover comfortably in.

Pupdate 6/23/22

Kirby’s surgery for his left femur fracture went well and he’s resting comfortably. He’s not putting weight on his leg yet, but is starting to test it out. Take a look at the before and after photos.

Mina

Pupdates

Rescue

Some very kind people in Atlanta notified our rescue partner, One Tail at a Time, about a senior dog living in an abandoned building. They had found a scared, old gal with obvious skin issues, struggling to survive and sleeping on piles of loose insulation. Her rescuers were determined to get her help and out of her terrible situation. It took a few days, but with patience and treats, they eventually earned Mina’s trust, and she agreed to go with them.

Vet Visit

After being scooped up from her unfortunate living situation, Mina was taken to the vet and given a bath. As she realized she was safe, her personality softened and she showed off her sweet side.

During her examination, the vet found that Mina had pyometra, which could be life-threatening if left untreated. Emergency surgery was immediately scheduled and performed, allowing us to focus on her other medical conditions. Mina has skin issues and a few bumps and masses that need to be checked out, and she’ll be starting heartworm treatment in two weeks. We’ll keep everyone pupdated on her progress.

Foster

Mina is settling is nicely with her foster family. As it turns out, she was destined to be spoiled and she handles it very well. She’s been on a few nature adventures and enjoys being loved on.

Pupdate 5/17/22

Mina had another vet visit where she received antibiotics and treatments for her mange. She will start her heartworm treatment after the skin condition clears up.

Shelter

Manny arrived at the shelter as a stray with a severe skin condition. His exaggerated skin wrinkles make him look like an old man, but he definitely doesn’t act like it. Despite his discomfort, he is a happy-go-lucky pup and as sweet as can be. He met our rescue partner, Deity, in the play yard with a wagging tail and was interested in sniffing the grass and saying hello to his visitors.

Freedom Ride

When it was time to go, he snuck into the front seat to give kisses every few minutes to remind his rescuers how thankful he was.

Vet Visit

Despite his absolutely devastated facial expression pictured below, Manny did very well at the vet! He was friendly with every person he met, and he was excited to meet all of the other dogs present. He patiently waited by the door for the vet to arrive, and kindly allowed the vet to perform his exam. Manny even gave the vet tech some kisses. A skin scrape determined Manny’s condition is Demodectic Mange, a non contagious form of the skin disease. He will need weekly medicated baths and to follow up with a veterinary dermatologist for a treatment plan. We’ll of course keep everyone pupdated on his skin progress.

Shelter

This sweet pup arrived at the shelter as a stray with eye trauma, a broken tooth and several fractures in her little body. She has fractures in her pelvis, both of her hips, her tail and her two hind legs. The fact that she was still walking is really a testament to her will to live, hence her name: Brave Little Toaster.

Vet Visit

The vet visit was a scary experience for our Brave Little Toaster. Due to her many, painful injuries, the examination was not fun at all, and she may not have been as brave as she wanted to be. There’s no photographic proof though… so as far as we know she did very well while the vet performed their examination! Who’s to truly say? 😏

Her x-rays showed that her left hind leg has fractures located pretty high up in the bone, so she would need a femoral head osteotomy (FHO) and to remove the broken acetabulum – or the ball part of the ball and socket of the hip. This will create a “false joint” and allow her to use the leg with less pain. Her right leg, however, has too many fractures to count, so the best course of action would be amputation. She will also need her eye and broken tooth removed to relieve discomfort.

The plan is to get her rear end surgeries as soon as possible, but until then, she will be fitted for a mobility cart and undergo physical therapy to re-build her strength. We have no doubts that Toaster will have any problems overcoming these obstacles – she’s so strong.

Foster

Toaster is staying with a wonderful foster family that includes other dogs and a bunny – all of whom she loves and gets along with. We’ve been told Toaster is sweet as pie, so it’s no wonder that she’s made friends already. ❤
