Indy's Before and After

Post your pics and vids here.

Postby Marinepits » February 23rd, 2007, 4:41 pm

About a year ago, I went to PAWS in Norwalk to help a friend of mine adopt a dog. They let us into one of the adoption rooms and I saw this picture on the wall.

This is Indy when he first came into the vet about six years ago. We guesstimated his age at 3 months. At this point he had been in the vets' care for about a week. He had been found in a dumpster, completely hairless from demodex mange and with a secondary skin infection that caused his skin to break open and bleed when he moved or was touched. He's wearing a coat here to protect his skin and the scabs that had formed. One of the vet techs, Michelle, had taken him to a minor league baseball game and that is where this picture was taken.

My old computer dumped the only pictures I had of Indy as a puppy, so I was beyond thrilled when the ladies at PAWS let me get a copy of this picture.

And here he is now.

Wow, that makes me speechless.
Just goes to show what a little TLC can do for a dog.
He looks AMAZING!

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body; but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

I can't believe the difference! I just kept scrolling up and down thinking, "that's NOT the same dog!"

OH my what a difference ...

His poor little leg looks painful in his puppy picture.

He sure has turned into a gorgous guy ...

all the more reason for people to realize that pits aren't trash. that mangled little guy grew up into a beautiful dog with a loving home, and that's awesome. people need to see more of this.
