    Someone just gave her to me yesterday. She was covered in fleas and has a rash under her neck from a too large flea collar. She is very malnourished and scared of everything. Her little hip bones stick out and her ribs are very visible. So today after a good bath and getting rid of the collar and eating about 4 or 5 small meals a day, she is beginning to get a smile on her face. I am treating the place on her neck with hydocortisone cream until I can get her to the vet....which is tomorrow. Now Rexie is just not sure about all this but I think he will be a good friend in a few days.

    Oh, what a sweetie! It is a shame that animals have to endure such abuse when all they want is to be loved and cared for! Thank you for taking her in and getting her the necessary medical attention she needs/deserves!!!

    Kudos to you for saving the life of this lovely fur baby. Makes me angry when people don't care for animals appropriately. Thank you for sharing.

    Poor little punkin! Flea collars are just horrible, anyway. I am so glad she found a loving home with you.

    congrats on looking after her I am sure she will be a wonderful companion once she settles in with you, lots of little feeds and lots of cuddles for her, I have a rescue dog and he is getting on in life now so we will be looking for another rescue ourselves soon.
    I get so angry with people when they get pets and then don't look after them, well done on turning her life around and giving her a loving home

    We got out chihuahua from some one that didn't want her anymore and she was so skinney, but what a sweetie, now she's plump. (like me!) People should think before they decide to get an animal! I hope she relaxes soon.

    What a sweetie! I am a volunteer with basset hound rescue-4 of my guys have been rescues. I can never understand why people treat these lovely creatures so badly. All but one of my hounds came to me as pups just months old given up for the most pathetic reasons.

    She looks so sweet..... thank goodness you have her now. I don't know how people can neglect or be down right cruel to animals...
