Wednesday, PAWS took 2 males and 2 females to get all cleaned up. All reports are that they did very well. Despite the bathing, dip, blow drying, brushing and clipping, they were happy enough to give the ladies tail wags and kisses. Jackie, Carol, and Shellie did a great job washing and grooming the lucky Fox Terriers.
When they were finished, Millie (another wonderful PAWS member) fed the ladies homemade soup and hot chocolate.... which warmed their bodies to match their very warm hearts! Carol then brought the four squeaky clean pups to her home and let them loose in a 10 x 20 pen. They ran, jumped and played, celebrating their freedom! Nothing is more heartwarming than seeing a puppy mill dog be able to run full out for the first time.

WE DIG DOUG!! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS SUPPORTED THE EFFORTS TO SAVE DOUG!!!
Doug had his 10-day check up today after moving to Minnesota, getting cleaned up, checked over, on a new medical regimen... and the news is beyond what we'd hoped! This is the initial report from Dr. Judi:
"I am really impressed with how... much better he looks - unless he gets really excited - you can't hear his wheezing at all - his ears are almost normal and he's really attentive - he looks like a whole new dog. He has lost about 3 pounds - so I have her increasing the kibble again - I'd ideally like to see him gain 1 pound. We decreased the pred by 25% - will recheck in 2 weeks - but at the rate he is going we may be able to neuter him and also possibly treat his teeth - Amazing!"
