Meet Soda Pup!

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I was at the cat rescue this morning.. when we got a call about a small puppy. Someone found him wandering the country roads.

Now, we don't usually take dogs in because we don't have the housing for them. And we can't afford to board them either. But we do take in puppies sometimes.. because they are small enough to be crated at the centre until a foster home is found for it.

We told the lady to bring him in right away.

I was so shocked when I saw him... he was missing fur all over his body Scabs, and stinky scaley skin all over.

We rushed him right up to the vets. Afte doing three skin scrapings, the vet figures it sarcoptic mange.
He gave us a special shampoo, and a few packs of Revolution.

We gave him the bath right away, and set up a cage in an area where there are never any cats. The vet wants him on a solitary confinement for 2 weeks. If the vet gives the go ahead, I plan on taking him home to hopefully have him housebroken for his adoptive family.

We named Him Soda Pup. ( I call him my Cream Soda Pup )

here's a few pictures of him.

Warning, these are a bit graphic to some people.

What a cute puppy! My uncle rescued/took a pure breed English Bulldog from someone in the town we lived in that was looking very similar to your sodapup. The guy had him chained in his yard and was obviously not feeding him and he rarely had water. He had bad mange with the scabs too. My grandpa told the guy that if he didn't take care of his dog then he was going to take him. He didn't and my grandpa took him. The guys never said anything about the dog since (he obviously didn't care in the first place) and Butch is now in a loving home. It's so sad to see an animal is such bad condition. I hope Cream Soda Pup is doing well!

I have no pictures for you guys today.. I'll try and get some in for ya tomorrow

He's doing very well. He acts like a puppy now. (I forgot what that was like! Holy man... )
He is using the paper MOST of the time.. but he does have the odd accdent off the paper.

I am rewarding him extremely everytime he goes outside.. and he's gotten to the point that he now goes almost once he gets out the door.. so he get get all the extra lovin and treats.

He was back at the vets a few days ago.. had a bath again and was treated with Revolution again. He does have quite a bit of hair growth already.

And in the two weeks that he had seen the vet, and then went back, he went from 13lbs to 20lbs!

He is going to be a big boy, beautiful boy in a few weeks.

He has been adopted but is waiting for the vets approval before he can leave his quarentine..
