Abby — Our New Rescue

abby2Abby is a Newfoundland who did not have a very nice start in life. As you can see, she was not taken care of and will need medical attention. She has major skin issues, large bumps on her back, and a granuloma on her back leg. The vet visit revealed that she does have Lymes disease and may have mild entropian in both eyes. Her eyes are infected and it does appear that the cornea on her right eye has been affected. Our vet thinks it’s from all of the buildup of infection around her eye, which when it dries becomes hard, and it has been rubbing on her eyeball. Despite her previous life, she is the sweetest girl. Believe it or not, she is only supposed to be 4 years old. Her skin condition makes her appear much older. She is so mellow and I believe is just happy to have a warm home & a nice comfy doggie bed to sleep on. She was perfectly behaved for the bath I gave her yesterday and really seemed to enjoy it. We love taking in these sweet souls who have had such a rough start and give them the life they should have had. She will be looking like a totally different dog in a few weeks.abby abby1
