A Basset, some Chi's, and a Pit - Oh my!

Well, in order to do DJ's heartworm treatment, my vet had to order an entire box of Immiticide. There was enough left over for a medium sized dog, up to 45 pounds. With the overwhelming response we had with Darren, I decided to pull this little girl named Bonny.

She was bred several times in her short 2-3 years and then dumped in a very small, rural shelter, complete with a moderate heartworm positive. She's been there since early February. I've already got several people interested in her, once we get her and fully assessed and treated. She will be going into Buster's old foster home, since he was adopted last week. She (and the next 2) will be here this Sunday the 4th, as long as transport fills.



These 2 boys are just under 12 weeks or so, chihuahua mixes. They are coming from the same itty bitty shelter as Bonny.

Cody



Curtis



And THIS guy is a local pit bull who was found stray and is currently being fed/watered by the people who found him, and he is in their securely fenced yard. He is coming as soon as DJ goes home, most likely next (not this coming) Monday, unless another rescue steps up (doubtful - rescues are FULL with pitties and pittie mixes ). He's about 2 years old, and one of my volunteers went out to assess him. He is reportedly sweet as pie, doesn't mind being handled anywhere, and turns into wiggly mush when he's getting attention. His name is Chase.

Diana (WhoaDuckie) has just picked up Curtis, Cody, and Bonny. She said that while Bonny is a bit sore from her spay, that doesn't stop her from trying to get into things in the car Curtis and Cody are reportedly TINY at 3-4 lbs each. I can't wait til they get here!!

Here are Cody and Curtis (taken next to the soda bottle to show their size). They are both rather thin (can see hip bones), and certainly a bit afraid, but typical feisty chis!

I am a little disgusted with the condition Bonny came to me in, once I gave her a good once over. I would not be upset if she had come directly from the shelter, but I found out she has been in a foster home FOR the shelter for the last 2 months.

She had super goopy eyes so we put her on erythromycin. She had inflamed and sore ears, so we did a good flush and put her on Malotic. She is still ouchy from her spay, though the incision looks great. She also seems to have a hard time getting all of her pee out at one time - she goes multiple times, just small amounts. It LOOKS and smells normal, but I put her on amoxi too.

So, I just emailed the vet that will be doing her Immiticide injections. We had planned on doing them next week, after she had settled into the routine at her foster home, but am not sure with all of these other things going on if we will have to wait. We're going to give her a few days on the meds and see if things improve, and if not we'll be headed to the vet a bit earlier than we were going to.

How does someone who has a dog for 2 months not notice ear and eye infections? How does the vet that did the spay miss these things too?

*grumble*

Anyway, here are a few photos. She is incredibly sweet and laid back, but also playful at times. She adores kids.

Some more pics of the adorable Cody and Curtis. Not thrilled at how thin they are nor that they were flea infested, but gosh they sure are fun! Ferocious guard dogs they are! I got up to have a drink around 2 am and they both stood there wagging there tails and...growling I might have been concerned if it weren't for the fact that I went over to the crate then and they proceeded to stand up at the crate, still growling, and still wagging. I opened it up and took them out and they were thrilled to be being held. Is this a normal way for small breed puppies to voice happiness? It really was rather funny and did not seem in the least bit aggressive.
