Please welcome Xena The Princess Warrior to our rescue family. From volunteer Dianne: In the world of Bulldogs, there’s never a shortage of scams and “sounds too good to be true” stories. And this is how Xena came to be. Imagine receiving a pic of a really cute puppy, but then seeing a Bulldog looking like Xena arrive.
It’s enough to make you sick … sick for the poor puppy that can’t stop scratching and smells really bad. Sick that you’re afraid even to hold the puppy. And sick that you trusted someone, but got duped instead. Xena will turn one on Feb. 17, but her body looks much older. She has sores all around her neck where she has scratched until she bled. Her eyes and ears are infected, and she can’t even get comfortable when she lies down.
Today was a rescue day that makes you want to cry for the dogs that don’t have a voice. We also cry that there are people that call this problem “just allergies and she needs a Benedryl.” For those owners, I have no words. At least, no words that I can type. It’s not OK to a let a dog suffer like this.
But we thank the family who knew she needed more extensive treatments and worked to get her to our program. May Xena’s healing begin!
