As dedicated dog parents all it's difficult to imagine ever giving our pups anything less than the very best. They are family, they are ours. And, more often than not, their needs come before our own. 4 year-old Boots (#A1115982 ) was surrendered to our care after his elderly owner was no longer able to care for him. Boots did also come in with a bite history having recently nipped the owner's daughter-in-law when she went to leash him. (Of note is that Boots was never walked on a leash. His owner reported that he used wee-wee pads only.) When I first met Boots he hugged the back of his kennel and actually turned himself to face only the wall. He didn't want much to do with me. He didn't want much to do with anyone. Two days later he was front-facing with reports that he had begun to go on walks. I leashed him with only a grumble or two and we went out to explore the yard. He mostly kept to himself but at one point hopped up to join me on the bench and put his paws across my lap. I pet him for the first time, and for the first time got a good look at his coat. Like wallpaper peeling away from the wall it is raw, ragged, and thin. Boots has severe dermatitis all over his body and missing large patches of fur notably in one spot along his back in the shape of a harness. Boots also appears to be suffering from conjunctivitis something that can sometimes occur as a reaction to kennel cleaning products. And while he did seek out affection here and there and allow some handling he also showed me teeth when I went to clean his eyes. Boots will need extensive treatment for his skin and coat (diet will go a long way) and an experienced owner without children. Due to his physical condition he has not been in playgroup so dog compatability is unknown. Boots is in an incredible amount of physical discomfort and understandably a bit lost and withdrawn but he doesn't need our pity. He does need our help. Boots is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan ACC. 🐾❤️🐾 #adoptbootsnyc#JRT#parsonsterrier#rescuedog#dog#dogsofig#dogslife#dogsofnyc#newyork#newyorkcity#nyc#terrier#terriermix#dogoftheday#adoptdontshop
Got a surprise visit from her bestie tonight, which made Valentina feel better. Although, she wasn't well enough to play like she usually does. She has a tummy ache. But she was happy to see @oliveandthepins !!
