Weasley aka Weasle is a 5-month old beagle mix puppy that was brought into Chesterfield County, SC, Animal Services on November 13, 2014. He was missing a lot of hair, and his body was covered in sores. The staff at Chesterfield County Animal Services took Weasley to the vet where he was diagnosed with demodetic mange. He was given medication to treat his mange, but the poor guy remained in the overly crowded shelter. Not much interest was shown in this small, pitiful puppy until Dog4U stepped up. An extremely gracious family offered to foster Weasley through his treatment for demodex, a non-contagious form of mange. Weasley, along with 2 other injured dogs, were picked up by a Dog4U volunteer and all the dogs began their journey to safety and recovery.

Weasley is now under the care of the wonderful staff at Bees Ferry Veterinary Hospital in Charleston, SC. It was confirmed that Weasley has demodex and a severe skin infection – “one of the worst they have ever seen,” according to the staff. They anticipate that his recovery will take a few months – maybe more. His skin is so fragile that he has to sleep on soft, satiny sheets because the smallest scrape will cause him to bleed. Meanwhile, he will be making regular visits to the vet to monitor his progress and receive medicated baths, antibiotics and Ivermectin to treat his condition. Weasley’s care is going to be expensive, so all donations are appreciated.
