So Much Better!

Last week we posted about a new dog in our care, Deluca, who was surrendered with a host of issues.  First to be done, and almost without a moment's delay, was a partial tail amputation.  As you can see in the photos, Deluca's bottom looks better already, just hours after surgery.

Now that the tail has been removed, there is still a bit of a pocket, but we are hoping that when the skin up by the tail tightens back up and the allergies that caused the "elephant skin" have been addressed, Deluca's tush will be less itchy and her family will be able to keep her clean easily.



Deluca will be on the website this week and if you are interested in donating toward this surgery that put an end to significant pain for this very sweet dog, you can do so.

The poor thing, sighs

Oh Deluca, that MUST feel better! Never seen one quite that bad, the poor girl. Such a wonderful thing you were able to do to help her, though!

Always a mystery how a person could be oblivious to such obvious issues! I hope the prior owner has no other pets! Poor DeLuca was in great discomfort at both ends, butt can now look forward to having a great new family, courtesy of FBRN! FBRN rocks!
