Cute little 5mo. Terrier MIX - Eastern WA

Postby msvette2u » January 20th, 2008, 1:32 pm

Melanie is a sweet little people loving Jack Russell Terrier mix (?)
She came from a very sad and neglectful situation - her former owners kept her outside with a harness on.
The problem was, she was growing quickly and her harness GREW INTO HER SKIN :(
She's healing up well now, but her owners brought her into the vet clinic and surrendered her, and they called us.
If any dog needs A Paw Up, it is Melanie, so here she is.

I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day, tomorrow doesn't look good either.

Oh wow, she is adorable! I wish I could take her - she has beautiful markings.

I've never heard of an embedded harness before, lots of collars but the harness is new.

How the hell do you leave a harness or collar on a dog and "not notice" that it is cutting into their bodies? :x

She has a sweet face ~ good luck placing her into a NICE home.

It is amazing what some owners fail to notice >( at least she's in good hands now. Vette you seem to have the amazing luck (I guess that's what you would call it) finding sweet, cuties that need your help.

I've come to somewhat dread our vet calling...!!
lol

Not really - but they get the odd ones dropped off that's for sure!
Thank God her owners surrendered her...and I'm glad I wasn't there to MEET them >(
