My family dumped me because they had young children and they decided I was too big! I was then given to a young couple, and they decided they would fatten me up and send me to a rescue, but they bit off more than they could manage. I am at least 20 pounds underweight and have a severely infected tail, plus my ears are dirty and infected as well. Another rescue had promised the young couple that they would take me, but they changed their minds. Lucky for me Harlequin Haven agreed to take me in, and the young couple delivered me the next day!! Shortly after I arrived here, they cut the bandage off my tail and the smell of the infected rotting flesh made everyone sick!! Then they gave me an hour-long bath!!! It took them that long to get the dirt off me!! It felt soooooooooo good!!! Then they gave me a quick nail trim and I got my ears cleaned. While cleaning out my ears Grandma found a deer tick you can see it in the picture below as well as the dirty cotton balls from my ears. Then off to rest!!
I will be going to the vet this week to get my tail amputated (almost 1/2 of bone is sticking out at the end) and I will be spayed. I cannot wait!!! Right now, I am getting antibiotics and pain pills, my tail hurts really bad!! The rescue gave me a soft dog bed and tons of stuff the other dogs said were toys and I am supposed to play with them but to be honest I do not feel much like playing!!
Update 5/22: I just wanted to give you a quick update. My Vet appointment is scheduled for this Friday, the Veterinarian wanted to wait a few days to get the infection under control. I must admit I am already feeling better! I love my new dog bed, I love being fed 4 times a day, I love being inside and not having to fight the flies and I love the medicine making my tail feel better!! Okay back to bed and another nap!
Update 5/27: I had my surgeries yesterday and I am feeling great!!! Yes, I have a bit of pain from the surgeries but nothing like the pain I had been living with my tail rotting off!! PLUS, I have already gained 15.6 pounds!!! Is it not amazing what can happen when you give a dog a bit of food!!!
Please can you spare a
few dollars to help the Rescue continue to help me and other Danes like
me? It would be greatly appreciated. Without the Rescue who knows
where we would have ended up!!
A must to read before
picking your forever Dane!
