Despite only being 8 weeks since we last saw her, Maisie was suffering with one of the worst cases of skin disease we’ve ever seen. Covered with mange, maggot wounds, open scabs and lesions, Maisie had lost her hair all over her body, and her face and feet were bleeding from where she had been scratching her itchy, sore skin. It was a pretty distressing sight for those of us who remembered her as a healthy little puppy.
We set to work getting Maisie better, showering her with love and treating her skin. Within days she was looking better! The power of medicine! It wasn’t her family’s fault that she was in this condition as they tried to get her help, so after some discussion we agreed to let them have her back – but they decided they didn’t want her, thinking her diseased. Dr Nayomi called them and tried to explain the situation but they’d made their decision. We’re going to really struggle rehoming Maisie again as to be honest, she looks a bit like a zombie dog and that’s not what people want. So, with a heavy heart, we’re adding her to our list of sponsor dogs.
MAISIE, YOU LOOK A BIT LIKE A GOAT AND WE’RE INTO IT.
