We know that an animal is in desperate need when the shelter reaches out to us to ask not only if we can take a dog, but if we can take them "right now" becuse they are in such desperate need of medical care.

We got that call from the Palm Beach Shelter on Thusday with the message "1416229 – We just had an 9 year old – male – long haired – Dachshund Owner surrendered.  It  was owner surrendered due to the “Owners moving and where they are moving to they can only have one dog.”  The dog is Geriatric, Blind in right eye, thin, and has dry skin."

Of course we said yes, and made arrangements to pull A1416299, who we named Strawberry due to his strawberry blonde color.  Even our pullers, who have seen it all, were stunned how thin he was when he came to us, covered in fleas and ticks.  He weighs less than 10 lbs, but should be closer to 15....

As if that wasn't bad enough, after being seen by Dr. Wemen, who saw Harold earlier this week, Strawberry's teeth are even worse, being described as "loose balls of tartar".  He will more than likely need to have all his teeth removed as well.

Despite the amount of pain he had to be in from his teeth, this sweet man was so hungry upon getting to Foster Mom Jen's house, he scarfed down all the food that she gave him.  

We could not turn our back on him after his family had abandoned him, but once again need your help to fund his care for major dental work and care by a vet opthamologist.  Would you consider a donation to his fund to help Strawberry feel the love of the DRSF community after being left behind?
