As you can see, our new friend Leoti is already in much better spirits than just a couple of days ago. She is loving all of the attention that she's getting and just loving life! We're sure she probably did not get much attention for quite a while now by the looks of her. This sweet German shepherd was neglected for quite a while before being found by some good samaritans a few days ago. We are so glad that they were able to catch this beautiful pup that was in desperate need of help, and that they called right away so that our animal control officer could come out to get her and bring her to safety. Leoti is now safe, happy, and the road to recovery!
Leoti is absolutely loving her three square meals a day, comfy beds and blankets, and daily medicated baths. She is extremely malnourished so we are feeding her little by little, to avoid re-feeding syndrome. She suffers from a terrible yeast infection of the skin, ear and eye infections, and other infections that were left untreated for far too long. She is only about 5 to 6 years old but has been through enough for several lifetimes already. We are hopeful that her condition will improve quickly, but her mood has already improved immensely! She is such a loving, sweet, gentle dog that wants nothing more than for you to treat her with kindness.
Besides Leoti, we have gotten in several other special needs cases over the last week or so. In addition to the dozens and dozens of kittens that continue to come in daily, we also got a very bonded akita and shar pei pair that are in need of some assistance, and a terribly neglected pit bull mom that has been chewed terribly by flies while she was tied up in someones yard, just to name a few. We always need blankets, towels, food, etc. for these animals that come to us for help. If you can help with supplies, please check out our Amazon Wish List
Thank you, and please stay tuned for more updates on Leoti and all of our special pets!
