One of the absolute best parts of fostering is getting updates on dogs that have since been adopted. Seeing them happy in their forever homes is just plain good for the soul! This is especially true when we get those updates on a dog that came to us with a medical condition like mange.
This is Penny(Penelope Cruz), she came to us with a gnarly case of demodectic mange which had rendered her head completely hairless giving her the look of a vulture which I, of course, turned into a running joke while she was around.
As per our modus operandi, we immediately gave her a dose of Bravecto and began her medicated baths. From the very beginning, this young lady was a lightning bolt wrapped up in a supernova, mixed with roadrunner DNA. In other words, she never, ever slowed down. Her only speed, while she was awake, was “bouncing off the walls at a full sprint” miles per hour.
It always strikes me how happy, loving, and playful these mange dogs are. It seems, from looking at them, that they should be miserable, but after over a dozen medical mange fosters, that has never been the case
Fortunately, after a few months of care, my penny healed up and found a perfect forever home. She gets to go hiking regularly, has plenty of room to run, and her forever people love her to the moon and back.
Over the weekend, we had an adoption event. To our delight, miss penny pants came to visit! She nearly tackled K2 when she realized who she was, which is just an amazing feeling for a former foster parent.
When I got the picture of her texted to me, it made my week! Look how amazing my little girl is doing!
That tongue still operates completely independent of the rest of her body!
So glad you are happy my girl, you deserve it!
