When my mom saw me, all she could do was cry. She hugged me close and we cried together. You see, she had just returned from a six-month deployment. She had left me in the care of a trusted friend and came home to find me in a horrible mess. I had lost 11 pounds. My skin was dry and scaly, and half my fur had fallen out. My eyes, ears and nails were horrible too. My joints hurt so bad, I could barely walk. I was malnourished and severely dehydrated.
With tears still in my mom’s eyes and overcome with guilt, she took me to the vet. There were so many things wrong with me and they wanted to run so many tests. Mom didn’t know what to do. She could not afford the care I needed and she knew she might be deployed again in the future. How could she ever trust anyone again with my care? She and the vet staff talked about options and she decided to contact a rescue. They could get me the care I needed and find me a home where I would never be neglected again.
So here I am. My name is Abigail Jen and I am 4 years old. I may be a mess now, but I am determined to get better and be the beautiful Bulldog girl I was before, when I was with my mom. I have developed a slight heart murmur, but they think it is because of my condition and it will improve when I get better. Can I come home with you and finish my healing?
Please say a prayer tonight for me and my mom. We really miss each other.
12/28/18 Update: Abigail Jen came to us covered with fleas and missing much of her fur as a result. Well, she has gained three pounds in the past two weeks! She is also so full of life and energy. She loves to go outside and run and play with the other dogs. Our friends, Erika Wesson and Pippa Lou with P Dawg Accessories for Bulldogs sent her the collar and leash she is wearing.
