    "Baby", as we call her now, has really taken a lovin' to our family. She is still scared of my grandson, but she may have been mistreated by kids in her short little life. She is warming up to him cause he is a gentle 11 year old. She eats 4 meals a day and now weighs 4 pounds. We still have an issue with her skin, but we are much better....We all love her so much, including Rexie.

    Our little 4 lb chihuahua / minpin started out pretty rough. She was not taken care of, left out in the Texas heat, had fleas, worms and puppy mange with spots of fur missing and sores on her. The vet gave her some meds that got rid of the mange but caused another skin problem. We took her off that and bought baby diaper rash med - Desitin multi purpose ointment. It is clear. Started rubbing her down with it and all her fur is back now.
    Hope your baby gets better soon.

    Awwww, I'd have her so spoiled it would be awful. I am sure you are and will do the same. She is precious.

    yikes, poor baby.

    I am down to 1 puppy left to go and he is supposed to go tomorrow. Then I have my DGD puppy that I am training. they are not in their house yet agter the flood so I have to keep it here yet. Out of 10 puppies. My that was a lot for my puggle Daisy to have. Then I have Saidy, Jake the daddy and a old mistreated black lab that my daughter rescued. Don't need all these dogs, but what can I say. Only 1 cat tho. she hunts between our two places.

    She is looking good. All she needed was a loving home. Glad she got one.

    Awww... I love the color patches on her head. She's got a very sweet expression. :)

    Have you put her on a grain-free food? Skin problems in dogs are often caused (or at least made worse) by grain. Grain-free foods tend to be a little more expensive, but she's so small she won't go through it quickly. We've had the best results with Fromm, but there are lots of brands.

    I'm glad you took her in and are giving her a good home. :)

    I never heard of Fromm but I will definetely look and see what I can find. As for eating, she acts like she had never had a meal, so she eats 4 times a day. Little meals.

    I feed Puppy Chow--less going out the back end. Vet I have recommended it. Plus the dogs love it.
