|Well ... here's the story
Picked up this dog on a lonely stretch of swamp road in Mississippi. I had two thoughts - someone take her or have her euthanized so she wouldn't suffer anymore. It is a pitbull. She was emaciated, covered in fleas, had bite wounds, had intestinal worms, and naturally, has heart worms. A woman took her but is unable to care for her (long story). So I'm getting her back on Friday.
The dog, 'Sippi', is cat aggressive. I don't know how she is around other dogs and am going to have to keep her separated from my other two. She has been wormed, given a rabies vaccination, treated for fleas, and bathed. She is taking medication for the slow kill method for the heartworms. She is on an oral antibiotic for the wounds which are healing well.
I don't think I can do what is right for the dog - things have changed so much lately at home. I will have to leave her alone for long periods of time and it won't be right. She seems very people friendly. Any suggestions would be greately appreciated. I contacted the Bama Bully group but no one has responded. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions?
