Our New Boy Arrives.....

Whenever I get a call from our good pal Lynn at Animal House Rescue I know it' going to be a sorry state, and the dog I got called about on Saturday certainly fits that bill.

Found emaciated, weighing just 27kg, tied to a tree and riddled with fleas, most of his fur was gone.

Lynn and her team did a wonderful job and a trip to the vets confirmed his skin issues were solely down to a flea infestation. Medication was prescribed a the skin is already beginning to look better.

His backend doesn' look the strongest so x rays were taken and revealed he does have a few spinal issues that are probably degenerative.

However perhaps the biggest upset was watching how he reacted when taken into Lynn's house. The Animal House is a foster based rescue and doesn' have kennels, and Dude (As he is currently named but we may change it) really found it a difficult environment to live in. Hence the phone call.....

Dude arrived north this dinnertime, he has put on 2kgs and already he looks a lot brighter. On a walk those it is clear to see that he hasn't seen a lot and he has a frantic scurry to try and get away from anything he finds strange.

Still he's a loveable boy and seems to enjoy the company of humans which is quite amazing considering what someone has done to him.....

Obviously this amazing boy is still going to need medical treatment and possibly in the future things like hydrotherapy. If you'd like to donate towards his recovery you can via PayPal to
