Christmas Miracles~ Tiny Tim & Vixen *Emaciated Pups*

Postby APBTmom » Sun Dec 27, 2009 10:05 pm

Please meet Tiny Tim & Vixen. They are year old siblings who have been starved almost to death. We pulled together and decided to pull these two for Christmas, in the hopes of giving them a life more than they've ever known.

I was shocked that they were Heartworm AND Fecal Negative. Do you understand what this means? They lived INSIDE a home, while someone starved them. Yesterday while going outside to potty, Timmy and Vixen heard a squirrell. They had no clue what it was and started freaking out. I don't believe they'd ever been outside :(

We are in need of a little help from our friends. They are so skinny and have to learn to process food all over again. Their tails have nothing but bone, so everything they wag against breaks the tip open and we have blood everywhere. Besides being skin & bones (literally), these kids are demodex positive. Tiny Tim has not an ounce of fur on him. He will be Black & White like his sister. He doesn't like to go outside because he is so cold.

Below is a wish list, if you can help it is greatly appreciated. With a little assistance, I believe we can have these 2 looking and feeling better than they ever have! Thank you and Happy Holidays!

**If you cannot donate any of he items, I will post the cost for what I know. If you can donate towards cost, please send donations to: http://www.paypal.com Account Email: apbtmom@pitstopbullys.com Please specify "Skinny Pups" in the text field.
You may also send donations to: Pit Stop Bully's Rescue - PO Box 280260, Tampa FL, 33565

Items Needed to Care for these kids:
Royal Canin Puppy - $40/ 15 lb bag (Found at stores like PetCo/PetsMart/ Pet Supermarket)
Royal Canin 'Recovery' (Vet's Office) - $1.98/ 16 ounce can
Goats Milk- $2.52/ Can at WalMart
Benedryl - 25 mg tabs
Sweaters - Medium/Large
Soft Blankets/Dog Beds
Vet Wrap for their Tails
Magic Erasers
Food bowls that make them eat slower (Usually are raised in the middle)

For the Demodex:
***Ivermectin (We get at our Feed Store) - $36/ bottle***
Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil - $25/ 32 ounce bottle
Omega 3 or 6 With Fish Oil (WalMart - About $6 for 100 gel tabs)
Vitamin E - (Walmart - $4-6 for 100 gel tabs)
Cod Liver Oil - (Walmart - $4-6 for 100 gel tabs)
Thank you for any help you can offer!

OMG!!! This is so heartbreaking.... :crybaby: :crybaby:

How can people do this?? How did you find these dogs if they were locked inside? I hope the owners can be criminally charged!

I will send a donation when I get paid this week on Friday. Bless you for saving them. Please keep us updated on their progress!!

We are assuming they were kept inside by their HW & Fecal Test. And their reactions to things they should know the sound of in FL. I pulled them from Animal Control in Orlando. They needed a new start, and we wanted to give them that for the holidays!

Ash I am planning on coming over again this weekend coming up. Jasmine wants to meet the little ones. I also will have a package ready by then to take with me. Its amazing that even in their condition they are still so sweet and loving. Janay has not stopped talking about them since yesterday.

Ashlie, let me know how many vitamins you have by Wednesday, through FB or whatever, and if you don't have any yet, or enough, I'll stop by the store and pick some up for the babies. That's when Kody gets paid.

I also have some Vet-wrap on the way, I ordered it from Dr. Fosters and Smith, only 1.79 per roll, and FREE shipping, so let everyone know that as well! I got 4, Dover hurt his paw, I'll give you 2 of them for a babies.

I'm praying for these guys.

If you can get me the measurements on both of them, I'd like to make them some nice warm fleece coats.

Here are the measurements I'll need:

Girth, measured behind the front legs.

Length of back, from base of neck to base of tail.

Width of chest, measured from one mid-shoulder to the other. Make sure you go on top of the breast bone when you go across the chest, not above it or below it.

I'll leave them loose, so there is room for weight gain.
