Do you ever have those times when you're trying to help one dog and along comes something unexpected? My mom and I are on a mission to help these two mangey dogs in a very poor neighborhood get help. One dog is off the streets thanks to another rescuer. So we went Sunday to leave food for the other and bathe him if we saw him. Well, we found him, did our deed and were about to leave when this comes along:
This was not on the agenda. This is the last thing I needed right now. WTF, is wrong with me? But how could I leave him? One of the locals said he belonged to some neighbors and that they have 3, but this is the only one we saw. He said his son asked if he could have one and they said "no". He said they don't take care of them, they run loose and come close to getting run over by their owners and others. I asked the man if he would say anything if I took the pup. He said "I see nothing".
My mom took him to the vet today so I'm waiting to find out what he has or doesn't have. With a belly like that I'm sure he has every internal parasite imaginable. I shutter to think there are 2 more. If I had somewhere for them to go I'd do another snatch and run.
Taking applications and name suggestions.
