Gladys is a middle-aged beagle that has suffered some neglect. She and her companion- Stetson, were abandoned to the streets after her owners were going through a divorce back in October 2022. She and Stetson wound up at the local animal control and their lives were in danger. We were able to pull both and put them into foster care, but upon arrival, we found that Gladys was dealing with some serious health problems including 2 badly infected ears and some terrible dental decay. Besides that, her feet were badly infected and we also diagnosed her with Rocky Mountain spotted fever and her initial exam also showed she has a grade 3 heart murmur. Here is Gladys' Facebook recovery Album .
We have been trying to help Miss Gladys feel better and have been building her up for her dental surgery scheduled for January 24th. We also plan to do a serious ear cleaning and an abdomen x-ray. We've been quoted $800 for the new procedures and already have over $800 invested in her initial care and medical supplies.
We recently had Miss Gladys at a photo shoot with our friend Anna, and she does have a beautiful smile inspite of her dental issues.
