Well I know some of you have been waiting on these pictures!! I apologize I'm just now getting them up. It's just been a LONG day for me. We had thunder storms start this morning at about 7:00 when I was getting up to get ready to go pick her up. The power went out right before 8:00 a.m. & didn't get turned back on until almost 2:00 p.m.!!
Then I had to run a couple errands for my grandfather-in-law. Plus go to pick up the few things I needed for Gypsy. So anyways, finally you guys get to meet her.
I have a couple concerns about her as she's tiny and I do mean tiny. The lady that brought her and the little male in said they were born May 2 which means she was 8 weeks yesterday. When I got her home I tried weighing her on my kitchen scale & find that the battery is dead. I didn't want to get back out so I'll try to take care of that tomorrow. She doesn't look as if she was wormed properly, when she eats she gets that bloated belly look. Her appetite is good though. It also looks as if she either wasn't fed properly or couldn't eat because it was hard kibble or other dogs wouldn't let her eat. The brother looked the same they said. Someone else had taken him home the day before, so I didn't get to become a failed foster parent. Anyways, as I said in a previous post I'm feeding her the canned Wellness Core Grain-Free Puppy Formula. I fed her 3 times today, each time she ate 1/8 of a cup. Plus I gave her Nutrical 3 different times, just about a inch long ribbon of it. I'm concerned that she hasn't went poo yet.
When her & her brother were brought in they also had fleas on them. They had bathed them & got them off at the shelter. But she has a little irritated place on her right shoulder & a patch of hair missing. I doesn't looked inflammed or irritated though, so I wonder if she just has an allergy to fleas. I put some coconut oil on it tonight, plus let her lick a little of that...she LOVED it. So if any of you have any advice for me please chime in & give me some!! I'm so scared about her being so little & not taken care of. Oh they did give her & the male a worming at the shelter but no shots because they were just so little. In the pictures I'm sure you'll be able to see how she doesn't look healthy. But she's doing great so far. She's playful & like I said eating well, going pee but not poo.
