Meatloaf - Sweet Dog Suffering Severe Neglect

$4,075 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 107 people in 2 months
Wags & Walks just rescued this sweet boy from the shelter, he is now known as Meatloaf!  What probably started out as simple allergies was left neglected for so long that it turned into a severe condition affecting Meatloaf's skin and ears.  His skin and ears are festering with massive infections - he is missing most of the fur on his rump/tail and his ears are infected with huge painful open sores.  We can only assume that Meatloaf has been suffering like this for many months, maybe years.  Wags & Walks has given Meatloaf a new lease on life, he is receiving expert veterinary care and lots of TLC at his foster home.  We have no doubt that he will recover from this, but it is a long slow healing process.  Please help Meatloaf get well!

3/6 update:  A few days into treatment for his skin,  Meatloaf started showing signs of an upper respiratory infection which rapidly got worse. Meatloaf went back to the vet and chest xrays confirmed that he has slight pneumonia, but we caught it early enough that he doesn't require hospitalization at this point. However, the xrays revealed another very serious surprise - Meatloaf has a large rock lodged in his stomach!  We don't know how long it has been there but it must be removed as soon as his pneumonia clears up.  A procedure like this will require a specialty surgeon to delicately remove the rock.  Once the rock is removed, Meatloaf  has an excellent prognosis and he is expected to make a full recovery with a long healthy life ahead of him now that he is getting the care he needs. Please help us get this sweet guy on the road to recovery!

Dear, sweet, adorable Meatloaf - this amazing fella continues to battle with skin issues. He's much improved since we rescued him but it's a constant challenge. One step forward and one step back, it seems. The spider bite issue is very slow to heal and now he has a new wound on his rump. He is overlooked for adoption in part because of his appearance. Please continue to help Meatloaf to overcome his skin issues so he can be his most handsome version! Sharing this story for additional donations is much appreciated.

Poor guy can't catch a break! Loaf suddenly developed this gnarly wound on his side, brought him straight to the vet and fortunately they aren't too concerned - they think it's a reaction to a spider bite! As always he is in good spirits and as sweet as ever. Patiently waiting for a special person to take him home.

Meatloaf update!! This special loaf had surgery to remove the rock from his belly and he is recovering perfectly! He kept the rock as a souvenir and reminder - it's a shockingly large rock, he must have been starving because he is not a scavenger dog that shows any interest in eating anything other than actual food.
