DONE Urgent extremely emaciated boxer girl needs help

Postby may.heckman on Thu Apr 29, 2010 9:27 pm

We need help getting Lizzy from Akron, Ohio to St. Paul, MN

LIZZIE WAS REMOVED DUE TO NEGLECT/CRUELTY BACK IN AUGUST 2009. SHE HAD BEEN USED AS A BREEDING MACHINE ALL THROUGHOUT HER LIFE AND MOSTLY LIVED OUTDOORS WITH LITTLE ATTENTION. ONE DAY WE REMOVED HER AND ANOTHER DOG FROM THE PROPERTY AND IT HAS BEEN A COURT BATTLE WITH THE "OWNER" EVER SINCE. THE WOMAN CARED NOTHING ABOUT LIZZIE BUT WAS MAD THAT HER "MONEY MAKER" WAS TAKEN AWAY FROM HER. LIZZIE HAD HEALTH ISSUES OFF AND ON ALL THROUGHOUT HER LIFE AND BETWEEN BEING BRED TO DEATH AND NOT RECEIVING PROPER CARE, THIS DOG GOT WORSE AND WORSE THE FURTHER ALONG IN LIFE SHE WENT. BY THE TIME WE RESCUED HER, SHE WAS AND IS A MEDICAL DISASTER. BUT SHE FIGHTS ON.....

AS AN ADULT BOXER, LIZZIE WEIGHS CURRENTLY 24 LBS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SHE IS A WALKING SKELETON JUST ABOUT. SHE HAS BEEN IN AND OUT OF VETS EVER SINCE AUGUST OF LAST YEAR AND MOSTLY STILL REMAINS A MYSTERY AS TO ALL THAT IS WRONG WITH HER. SHE HAS BEEN ON EVERY KIND OF DIET KNOWN TO MAN AND RIGHT NOW IS ON 3 FEEDS A DAY OF PRESCRIPTION CANNED I/D FOOD. SHE IS ALSO ON SEVERAL MEDICATIONS INCLUDING PREDNISONE, TYLAN POWDER, BAYTRIL, ETC.... SHE IS ALSO FED BISCUITS HERE AND THERE THROUGHOUT THE DAY. IAMS PUPPY BISCUITS, BEGGIN STRIPS, AND CHICKEN IS SOME OF HER FAVORITES!!! SHE HAS HAD MUCH BLOOD WORK DONE BUT MOSTLY KEEPS SHOWING NORMAL RESULTS. SHE DOES SHOW SIGNS OF A NEUROLOGIC PROBLEM AS HER HEAD BOBBLES FROM TIME TO TIME AND SHE SOMETIMES WILL BUCKLE HER BACK PAWS AND WALK ON HER TOES. THE NEXT STEP MOST LIKELY WOULD NEED TO BE A BIOPSY.

I can cover Chicago to Minne if we can get her that far. Maybe Sunday, but the WX is not good to the east.

I could work something in during the week, next week, possibly, too.
