Sigh.... Another abandoned dog. :(
Mom received a call from another doggy mommy, Dou Dou Mom asking her if she knows of any animal rescue organization because she found a skinny pug outside the convenience store. She asked mom to bring a spare leash over and she gave the pug some food.
This is the poor pug, they have never seen any pug as emaciated as this one.
His nails were over-grown.
He is all skin and bones and there are some sores on his bum, vet says he was probably kept in a cage without any care for a long time. How cruel! Vet says he appears healthy and is about one to two years old. He also did not have any ID tags or microchip on him.
Vet took his blood to run some tests.
Phew! He tested negative for Heartworm and Distemper. That is good news, but sending him to the shelter may not be a good idea at this point because he is unlikely to be adopted by anyone within seven days and so, Dou Dou Mom decided to bring him home. Yippee! Dou Dou the three legged golden retriever is going to get a new playmate!
Here is Puggy after a bath. Look at his trimmed nails! The groomer even put a yellow scarf on him!
You can't save them all, but at least we got another abandoned dog off the streets. Here is a reminder to all dog owners or future dog owners: 10 Promises to My Dog
