Before Pictures & My
My owner contacted Harlequin Haven when he could no
longer afford to take care of me. He said I had constant worms and
I had diarrhea all the time.
The rescue did find
tape worms in my poop along with plastic bags, Styrofoam and many other
things that Grandma said she really did not need to know what they were
as long as they were coming out. I have been here less then 24 hours and
so far I have been wormed, treated for fleas, tested for heartworm, lyme
& ehrlichia and I have received my vaccinations too!! PLUS the best part
is that I am getting yummy food every few hours!! I weigh 63 pounds and
I should weigh at least 100 so I have some eating to do!!
Update 2/28: Just a
quick update I now weigh 71.2 pounds!!! Not bad in just 5 days I have
gained 8.2 pounds!! I did have diarrhea for a couple of days but that is
all gone, now that I have adjusted to the food and eating 5 meals a
day!! Well I gotta get back to eating!!! I LOVE eating!!
Update 3/14: Well
since I have been here at the rescue every once in a while I would have blow
out diarrhea and foreign objects would appear. Well this week I went to
the vet to be spayed and have my stomach ex-rayed and GUESS WHAT!! My
belly was full of plastic bags (food storage bags & grocery bags),
packing Styrofoam, rocks and other assorted plastics! My belly sure
feels better now!!! FYI, even with the belly full of plastic I
still had gained weight!! I now weigh 82.6 pounds!! Check out my new
Update 3/22: I have
Great News!! I am getting really close to my desired weight!! I NOW
weigh 90 pounds and it only took 26 days to gain 27 pounds!! I have
gained a pound a day!!! Just imagine if I had not had all that plastic
and stuff in my belly how much more I could have gained!! Oh yeah I am
also ready to start looking for my forever home!!!
Update 5/26: Well to
give you a quick update I was adopted a week ago along with
Penelope and we thought we had
our forever home but that was not to be the case. I am not sure what all
went wrong but their current dog was not happy with us being in his home
and the man that lived in the basement was afraid of us so we came back
to the rescue! So I am again looking for my forever home and hopefully
this time it will be forever!!!
