Merced Puppies' journey to recovery

We are neglect rescue cases from Atwater California. We have severe skin disease, demodex +, overgrown nails and we are emaciated. When we are done with our treatments we can be adopted out to a forever home. Finding out what is wrong with us and the treatments will be the expensive part. Please help us.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi our names are Mr Jensen, Mr Jared, Miss Katie and Miss Lauren. Dr's think we are 4 months old. We are an Argentine Dogo/Dogue de Bordeaux cross (DNA Tested). Full DNA report will be given to our adopted families as well as our complete health records. Here is our story from our POV.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
We were all found in an alfalfa field in Atwater by Merced County Animal Control on June 8th 2017.
06/08/2017 Our photo at Animal Control.

We all were very sick so we saw a Dr at the shelter. Dr scraped us and we tested positive for Demodex. We were given vaccinations and ivermectin injections. We need to get out ASAP and start treatment.
06/10/2017 We need a rescue ASAP.

Shelter staff went home the day we were brought in not knowing where we could go for rescue. When they arrived to the shelter the next day there was an email from Miss Gabriel Foundation asking if there were any sick dogs they had in mind for rescue as they were passing through the area to rescue another dog.

Of course this was the answer to the shelters dilemma and rescue was set up with MGF.
06/10/2017 Our freedom photo leaving the shelter.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
We are in need of ongoing medical attention for our sickness. We were then transferred to the MGF on June 10th 2017. MGF will take us too our new Dr to develop a treatment plan.

At MGF they will foster us and give us the 24/7 medical care we will need. They have a motto and it is "Giving a second chance to dogs who never had a first chance." MGF needs your help to make this happen.

Dr Liana wants to see us often to check on our progress for healing.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
We will get better but only under medical treatments. Our Dr visits may be frequent, at first, due to our severe condition. Diagnosing can also be costly. I hope you can find it in your hearts and pocket books to please donate to our rehabilitation and recovery. 100% of these donations go into our care.

Donations are welcomed and are always needed for the veterinary/daily care of sick dogs like us. By your donations, the neglected cases get to come here into MGF for a second chance.

We did not want to get this sick. We wanted to be loved and cared for. Our previous owners let us get this way. Our medical bills will be ongoing during our treatments to get better. The hope is to not need a medical plan after we heal and repair. We want to live and we want to find our fur-ever families. It will take a village to help us. We need your help please.
