We are so full and I'm getting ready for transport and was trying to stay true to only getting the one dog I was sent to get...
I guess my heart doesn't listen to my head:)
There he was.. So terrified..
My sweet little, Mister Magoo
Scared, itchy and nervous..
Poor little guy was sooo uncomfortable, covered from head to toe in mange.
His whole body was full of scabs & infection.
I took him straight to the vet and to our surprise he is very young.
Infections to his skin, ears, upper respiratory also.. Fleas and ticks. Thank goodness, heartworm negative.
It will be several months of care, but he will be a new dog by then.
Not perfect, but better than dead.
I have to keep him away from my dogs for a few weeks.
He had a series of 3 soaking baths, to help ease his skin issues.
A very good bath taker, I must say!!
Last nite we were doing health certificates till almost midnight with my vet..
I'm pooped, but hey!! I'll have plenty of time to sleep when I'm old or dead:)

Mr. Binky's story is making me cry, too. How wonderful to know that he got to such a happy place! Good work.

By the way, did I ever tell you that a pug is Gary's "dream dog"? I'll have to show him the picture-or maybe I shouldn't:)
One of these days we'll quit playing phone tag & actually connect!
