Not all of our “Where Are They Now” segment dogs have been so lucky to have found their forever homes yet. Delaney is one example.
When rescued, Delaney was being “stashed” in a fenced in area at a school by the air conditioning unit. She was emaciated, had skin issues and her feet were swollen and red to the point that you could barely distinguish toes. If I had to guess, I would say that some kids probably had her, their parents wouldn’t let them keep her so this was their solution. There were no bowls in sight, so it’s anyone’s guess how often she got food or water. She was happy to be rescued and rode shotgun back to the shelter.
Putting on weight was the easy issue to fix. Delaney loves her food, and we were happy to give it to her! Her skin and feet were a different story. It took a few months and various trials with different medications, but she has healed.
Now all this beautiful girl needs is a forever family. Delaney loves her shelter friends, but being loved by her own family is what she wants and needs. My hope is that maybe by seeing her healing process, someone will see that she is the perfect companion for them.
