Rescued on 29 March 2022, Colin was in desperate shape, but with the support of donations intended for another dog that didn't make it, he's made a remarkable turnaround. And he's such a sweetie!
Using voluntary donations left over from a sadly unsuccessful attempt to save another dog, Victory, Colin was in terrible shape. He was being fed by Francis - who feeds a number of strays but who doesn't have funds to provide vet care. He asked us to help as he had no idea how to help the dog and after we learned that Vic had died - we decided to take Colin in.
He had a severe case of Mange, a maggot-infected ear, totally dehydrated and emaciated and also has Anaplasma. His CBC test showed high white blood cells indicating infection / inflammation. His red blood cells are low - showing Anemia. Doc Pierre kindly gave instruction to our assistants whilst on vacation, and they began their work.
In just a few weeks, he changed out of all recognition, and was well on the way to regaining a full coat of hair and a fuller figure! He was also neutered, as all our dogs are once they are strong enough to undergo the anasthetic.
We would love to find a new home and life for little Colin, he deserves it!
