The Latest Scoop About What's Going On At Enchantment Rescue!
POLETI & CLEO
Poleti (Popo) and the Peanuts
Popo just couldn't wait another week to have a C-section. She went into labor on Feb. 13 and was rushed to an emergency clinic. New X-rays showed her internal wounds, from being kicked in her side so hard it required surgery, appeared healed enough that she could deliver her babies naturally and that is just what she did as soon as she returned to her foster home.
Three girls and a boy, named after Peanuts characters Lucy, Violet, Sally and Linus. Mom is doing well and is understandably being very protective of her babies. Stayed tuned for better photos.
Below is an X-ray of the pin placed in Cleo's leg.
Cleo was thrown against a wall because she pee'd on the floor. An orthopedic trained veterinarian was needed to do the surgery. Cleo is a puppy. You can see the stitches from where they inserted the titanium pin in the photo below.
Cleo Following Surgery
Sawyer, though just a puppy, came to us with a horribly embedded collar. He had to be anesthetized in order to do the surgery required to remove that collar. He is safe now with a loving foster.
Weighing exactly 3 lbs. Baldwin, about 3 months old, was found along the freeway, covered in sores and scabs. He has mange that could have been treated easily if caught sooner.
And at the Other End of the
Age Spectrum -
Chiple, 16 yrs. old, was just surrendered by her owners. She has a large, serious wound on her lower abdomen that looks like road-rash from having been dragged by a car. She is currently receiving ongoing treatment for her injuries.
Has This Become the Season of Our Discontent?
A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR
Enchantment Chihuahua Rescue endeavors to make Tail Wagger News a fun and light-hearted place to visit. However, over the past six weeks ECR has received an insane number of calls to help abused small dogs. Being a rescue organization we see the dark side of how animals can be treated and we try not to put that burden on our readers. This issue is an exception. We all need to be the protectors of animals who cannot protect themselves.
Please be vigilant of the pets in your neighborhood and report those you believe are being abused, or at any time when you see abuse. Call 311 or 505-768-1975. (Animal Welfare)
If you can help with the medical expenses for these unfortunate dogs please click on the DONATE button at the top of this page. Thank you. We bless your efforts large or small.
