Rock - 3 Months Old with A Severe Case of Mange

Rock is a 3 month old pit bull pup that was brought to AHS. The adorable pup is sweet, love-starved and had a severe case of demodectic mange when he arrived. It was so severe, he had nary a hair on his body.Mange is caused by the pup's immune system to handle mites. In certain situations such as intense stress, malnutrition, etc., the mites will reproduce rapidly.

His owner surrendered Rock because he cannot afford to keep him and had been treated by multiple vets. We doubt if any of the above were true . It is probably that Rock became a burden to his owner. Within a few days at the AHS Medical Dept., the skin is losing the crusty, scaley appearance and hairs are growing back!

The Res-Q Fund will have this little guy ready for a new home in no time! You can make a difference in the life of Rock and lots of other animals that would never have the chance to find love and acceptance with a new family.

Check out Rock getting his first bath!
