Meet one-year-old 'Cuddles.' This sweet piebald gal was surrendered to the Humane Society in Key Largo, Florida with a "bad skin allergy." After many failed attempts with minimal resources to treat her, she was scheduled for euthanization.
Enter Dachshund Rescue South Florida. The group was contacted last Monday to see if they could help Cuddles, or even make a donation to pay for a specialist for her. DRSF decided to take her in, and picked her up from the shelter on Wednesday. Here's an update on Cuddles from the DRSF blog:
When I came home from work this afternoon, I sat with Miss Cuddles and just held her in my arms and feed her some chicken jerky treats that she loves. I couldn’t hold back the tears as my 9 year old comes to check on Cuddles and finds me with my head down just looking at this tiny, helpless, little girl that looks at you with her little eyes and the pain just radiates into your body from hers. Although I am happy to be the one to be able to help her on this long road to recovery, you cant help to think about all the pain that she is going through. She doesn’t play, she doesn’t bark, she doesn’t do anything that a 1 year old puppy should do.
