***ADOPTED!*** SCARLETT – Pug X – Female – 1 Y
So this cutie patootie was rescued by a Roundup family back in July down in Arizona. She was being kept primarily outdoors with a bunch of other larger dogs and not getting the care she deserved. This family brought her home only to find out that she was pregnant. She had two puppies and they found them homes but now the family has a major health emergency and cannot care for her.
Scarlett came to us very thin even though the family had wormed her and was trying to feed her extra chicken etc. to put weight on her. We gave her a good broad spectrum wormer and you should have seen the tape worms that came out of this girl! Plus, having two puppies (Scarlett only weighs 14 lbs. herself) really took a toll on her young body. We also tested her for heart worms being she was not a local dog — which was negative!
Now that she is spayed, wormed etc., she is starting to put some weight on and is so happy! Scarlett has a ton of energy (she is a baby herself) and did ok with the other animals in the house. Scarlett was fine around the children just had so much energy that she rather overwhelmed them. This girl had some house training issues and the family was not around enough to really work with her on them. Now that she has been at our vet over a week, she is truly learning how not to soil in her kennel. Also, with the worming this has helped her with her stool etc. Her new home is going to have to continue to be consistent with her and basically treat her like any puppy. Outside often and tons of praise!
Scarlett really is a sweetheart and we can tell by the happy look on her face, she is thrilled with her new lot in life! Indoors, lots of food, no worms, no babies, no uterus … YAY! Please give this sweet girl a chance and we can guarantee you a companion for life!
