Spotlight Fannie – Ready for Adoption – Update 3

Update on Fannie

Fannie Better7/21/17 – Here is Fannie almost completely healed up.  The hair on her ears and her tail has grown back but it is still a little thin and we feel that it will be back to normal in a couple of weeks.

There is still some staining on her back and that will go away with time.  She feels wonderful and has plenty of energy.

Fannie is ready to find a new home!  Thank you for your support!  Fannie thanks you!

Spotlight Fannie – Update 2

Update on Fannie

7/13/17 – We got an update from Fannie’s foster mom!  She also sent us two new photos.  Thank you for your donations!  We appreciate your support so much!  Fannie says thank you!

“Here is our precious baby, Fannie, getting ready for another vet visit.  She is going to be spayed today.  As you can see her neck and ear looks so much better.  She has become a healthy frisky happy little dog instead of a desperately frightened and sick stray.”

Update on Fannie

7/11/17 – Fannie saw the vet yesterday.  She was such a good girl!  She is on several medications for her skin issues, and she will take those for a while until we see some improvement.  She is doing much better already though.  She was also tested for heartworms.  Unfortunately, Fannie tested positive for heartworms so she will need treatment for that.  Her vet bills will increase due to the heartworm treatment.

We are still short of our fundraising goal.  No donation is too small.  Every little bit helps!  Thank you for your support!  Make sure you check out the new photos we posted.  Stay tuned for more updates and photos.

This is the newest little Russell Rescue dog.  Her name is Fannie and she was found on June 19th, 2017 running around a convenience store in a very small town in south Texas.  As you can see she has been chewed to pieces by fleas and ticks.  The coat she has left is yellow and stiff.  She is in bad shape.  She is going to need several vet visits and good meds to get back to normal.

This petite baby only weighs 10 pounds.  She is a perfect Jack Russell Terrier though.   Her dew claws are removed and her tail and ears are perfect.  But she needs your help to recover.  Fannie will see the vet in the next several days for a full evaluation.  She will also be tested for heartworms at that time.  Then we will have a full picture of everything she will need in order to recover and be ready for adoption.

Can you help us pay for Fannie’s medical care?  At this time, we anticipate that her vet bills will run around $400 unless she has heartworms and then it will be more.  Any amount you can spare is very much appreciated and it all adds up.  Thank you so much for your support!   Donate to help Fannie.

Spotlight Romeo – Update 3

Update from Romeo’s foster mom:

Here he is after being groomed. He was not too sure about being up on the table. He got home and took a long nap! Tune in next week for one more update on Romeo. We will have an announcement!

Spotlight Romeo – Update 2

Update from Romeo’s foster mom:

Romeo had a checkup at the vet.  I was able to get a couple of photos.  You can see the puncture wound in his upper thigh.  There is a corresponding puncture on the other side.  The redness and swelling are going down, which is great news!  Romeo got to spend a little time in the yard, which he loved!  You can see from the photos that the puncture wounds are starting to heal.  Romeo is feeling almost frisky again and is officially the Backyard Jungle King!  He is still limping, and I have to be very careful when I pick him up, as his torso is still very bruised and sore.  He is such a little piglet.  He never loses his appetite!  He says to tell you thank you for your generous donations!

Spotlight Romeo – Update 1

Update from Romeo’s foster mom

Romeo was a good boy at the vet.  They got him all stitched up.  He has several puncture wounds and the cut on his belly that all need time to heal.  He is having a tough time walking as he is pretty stiff and sore.  He is on good meds and I am going to be keeping him quiet and still for a while.  He is spending quiet time in the bathroom, which he hates!  But Romeo is glad to be home!  Romeo says thank you for your help!

This little senior guy is Romeo and he was found wandering around all alone. His finder, a very kind man, took Romeo to a local vet to have him scanned for a microchip. Romeo did have a microchip and his owner was contacted. When contacted, he said he didn’t want Romeo anymore because he was old. The kind man who found Romeo took him home with him. He contacted Russell Rescue for help and when a foster home opened up, Romeo became one of us. He has been in a foster home for a few months now.

Recently, Romeo got into a fight with another dog in his foster home and ended up getting bit in multiple places. Romeo needs your help. Can you help us pay for the medical attention Romeo needs? As you can see from the photo below, he has a horrific cut on his tummy.

We are expecting the vet bill to be around $1,000. Please help us help Romeo!
