Judy was rescued from Judyville subdivision in Sibulan in October 2020. She was a stray but was being fed by an old man in the area, who didn't know what to do about her deteriorating condition.
Now, she is really friendly and plays a lot with the other dogs.
Judy had a severe case of mange when we brought her in as you can see from the pictures.
The old man came when they brought Judy in and cried when he left.
We treated her with Nexgard Spectra, which kills mange mites in two days. It kills all parasites and worms and within a couple of weeks the dog looks completely different. Here she is after about a week.
Like most of the strays we bring in, she was very unresponsive to us and tried to keep her distance but over time she became friendlier.
She is never aggressive and is always still a little wary, but does allow people she knows to stroke her.
She is now surprisingly healthy as when dogs have severe mange like she did, their immune systems become compromised and they tend to get sick easily but luckily, she has had no major issues.
Judy is doing really well. She is really enjoying her walks with the volunteers and is really good on a leash now. She's getting a little fat we think! She is quite happy here and enjoys playing a lot. She has not been sick or had any injuries. Here is a video taken last Thursday of her on her walks.
Judy has had a very good month with no illness or injury at all. She has become so much more playful in the last few weeks - pretty much non-stop playing. Also her fur has started to look so much better as we have been able to do more regular bathing once a week since Rachel our new assistant started.
She is also much friendlier with people as we have allocated a volunteer to specifically work with her - brushing her, stroking her and playing with her.
We are going to start leash training with her this month as we don't think she has ever been on a leash
