Our tiny precious December left yesterday with her new mama, Pamm Summers. Pamm previously adopted our rescue Payday from the candy group. She flew in yesterday to take little December back home to start her new life in Ashfort, Connecticut. December’s new name will be Pearl, and what a beautiful little black Pearl she is.
We wish you all a very happy life!About December:
Update on December by Julie:
December is a very small, 15lb, cute girl with a ton of spunk. She plays well with all the dogs here and hasn’t had any interest in the cats at all. TONS of interest in the little copy cat black dog staring back at her in the mirror though who she likes to bark and engage with. She has gotten much better with coming to me more comfortably but is still a bit hesitant and will playfully jump back just out of my reach. I have not yet had her on leash so I don’t know how she is with that yet and am sure she will need work with it. She has learned the routine here pretty good with being let outside for potty and play and is doing fairly well with house training but will still go inside on occasion so this is another area she will need continued work. She is doing very well in her crate and when I put her in she hops right up in her bed and doesn’t mess in her crate. She is learning very well to accept love and I believe once in a home where she has more one on one attention that she is going to flourish very well and be a very loving, silly girl who I going to bring lots of laughs to her family.
She came to us with a bacterial and yeast ear infection that is still being treated with TrizUltra+Keto and Mometamax and will require a recheck.
She also had a bacterial skin infection (dermatitis, slope is, and thin hair likely due to the amount of fleas she had). She is still on an antibiotic (Cephalexin) for that. Her skin will also require a recheck.
She has dry eye (keratoconjunctivis sicca) in both eyes with a scar on the left eye for which she is on 3 eye medicines. One of the meds, Tacrolimus, will likely be a lifelong medicine.
She has lower lid entropian that needs to be evaluated by the Veterinary Eye Institute.
Her fecal results were positive for giardia which she is being treated with Metronidazole and Panacur. Both of these meds have two more treatment series to complete. She has also had one of two doses of Droncit for tapeworms. A fecal recheck is needed around 8/25.
She was given Heartguard and Nexguard on 7/26 so the next doses are due 8/25.
December has not been spayed yet and I believe she is currently in heat.
She has been examined, had all vaccines and microchipped.
The Rescue responded to a “surrender” of dogs by a backyard breeder in South Texas in July. These dogs were all roaming out on this man’s land, a man who is being charged and tried for animal abuse and neglect. Our wonderful transporters brought home this Month-themed group. The conditions of all of these dogs were appalling, pitiful. This small girl is no exception.
She is small, has an old eye injury and bite wounds all over so she has already had a difficult life at so young an age. She will soon be seen by Dr. D but for now she is clean, fed and all-loved.
Welcome to the Rescue, December.
