Filomena - Abandoned Senior Dog With Pneumonia
Filomena is a lovely senior poodle that was found wandering the streets in terrible condition and although she did have a microchip, nobody responded or cared enough to reclaim their lost friend. Senior dogs, especially those that look the way that Fil did at the shelter, they just don't get adopted. So Wags & Walks rescued her - first stop: bath and grooming, which revealed not a grey dog but a sparkling white beauty! Clearly she has suffered years of neglect, including a funky growth on her head that needs to be removed and biopsied and a truly offensive mouth full of rotting teeth and gums which needs major oral surgery. Just as we were getting ready to take her in for surgery, Fil got very sick very fast and needed to be hospitalized for pneumonia. She is out of the ICU now but still fighting to get well. We still have the the mouth & head surgeries and biopsy ahead of us. Please help us help Filomena recover from pneumonia and have surgery.+ Read More
We are happy to report that Filomena overcame the pneumonia and she had surgery with no complications! She no longer has any teeth (they all had to be removed) and good news - the Dr. removed the growth from her head and felt that is was very benign in appearance (basically like a big ugly wart) so no biopsy is necessary!
