My owners dumped me
at the Animal Friends Humane Society on Christmas Eve. The Humane
Society immediately called Harlequin Haven so I could get medical care
as quickly as possible. I have infected inflamed untreated open wounds
on both my hind legs. I can barely walk my paws hurt so badly. Click
here to see the pictures of my wounds. I have been living outside and have never been
inside nor have I ever walked on a leash. This is all so new to me!!!
After arriving at the rescue I immediately had my
wounds cleaned, medicated and bandaged. I have been started on
antibiotics so hopefully in a few days I will start to feel better.
Update December 29:
Just wanted to give you a quick update! The vet stopped by the rescue
last night to check my wounds. He said they are looking great, but it
will take weeks or possibly months to heal!! He also
gave me some sort of shot to make them not hurt so bad and it is working
great!! I felt really bad making him come here to see me but I have to
learn to walk on a leash better before I can go visit him! I am trying
and yes learning to walk on a leash but Grandma said baby steps and she
does not want me stressing!!
I also want to thank
that fat guy in the red suit that brought me all the presents. I had
never heard of Christmas let alone Santa so he scared me when he came
in, I thought he was trying to puppynap me!! The Danes told me that in a
few months a Bunny rabbit will bring us special doggie treats on a day
called Easter. I think they are pulling my leg!!
Check out my new
picture below, Grandma took it when we were waiting for the vet to
Update February 2:
Well I only have 1 small spot not healed yet but hopefully it will be
healed in a few more days!! I am healed enough that I have my
appointment to be spayed next Wednesday!! I can't wait!!!
Update February 13:
Sorry I forgot to update my webpage!!! I am now ready for adoption!!! I
still have tiny scabs that are still healing but I do not chew at them
and they are healing nicely!! I have been spayed and I am ready for a
forever home!! I would love a forever home with another dog cause I have
never lived alone and I like the security of having another dog around!!
I will need an obedience class too because I am still not great on the
leash!! I do try but when I get nervous or excited well I kinda forget
what I am doing!! I will see if grandma can get a new picture of me real
Update March 3: I have
added a new picture of myself below!!
Update May 21: Well things did
not turn out quite like l expected. One day I suddenly became ill and
just hurt all over. Grandma called the vet and had him come to see me
because I hurt too bad to even get in the van to go see him. Well on
first sight he said he thought I had Lupus so after several blood tests
the results came back. I do indeed have Lupus. I am loved here at the
rescue so I now will live out my life as a Sanctuary Dane.
Update June 15:
I just thought you might enjoy seeing some pictures of me enjoying life
Please can you spare a
few dollars to help the Rescue continue to help me and other Danes like
me? It would be greatly appreciated. Without the Rescue who knows
where we would have ended up!!
