Mr Banks' journey to recovery

I am a neglect rescue case in Modesto California. I am very sick. I have severe skin disease. We will know more after MGF takes me to their Dr. After I heal and get better I can be adopted out to a forever home. Please help me.
Hi my name is Mr Banks. Dr's think I am 4 years old. I am a German Shepherd Dog (DNA Tested). Full DNA report will be given to my adopted family as well as my complete health records. Here is my story from my POV.
I was brought in as a stray. I had a microchip so my family was located. Meanwhile animal control got me to a vet and started me on a treatment plan to help me.

My family said they wanted me. They even came to see me at the shelter but then they walked away and left me here. I was lost, alone and sad. I cried.

Animal control quickly approved Miss Gabriel Foundation's application for me and made arrangements for my rescue.

On April 3rd 2016 Miss Gabriel Foundation (MGF) stepped in to pick me up, foster me and give me the 24/7 medical cares I would 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.
04/03/2016 Starting my trip from CA to OR.
I saw my Dr on April 4th 2016 to start my diagnosis and treatment plans. I have high white blood count in my blood due to my skin disease. I am anemic from the blood and ooze leaving my skin. I have advanced skin disease more than likely from allergies. I do not have heartworm or lyme disease. My abdomen and chest are clear. My ears and skin are infected. I am bleeding and oozing pus from my skin. My nails are very long and they need trimmed over time to shorten them. I am missing a lot of my fur. I am full of scaly skin. I started on heartgard and bravecto today as well as antibiotics. I started to receive all my vaccines as if it were the first time I have ever had them. Dr says in 2 weeks we can check my WBC again to see if I can be neutered ASAP. I am negative for mites and fleas.

Dr Liana wants to see me frequently, to check on my progress for healing.
As we will show you, my medical costs will be adding up to get me healthy again. I hope you can find it in your hearts and pocket books to please donate to my rehabilitation and recovery. 100% of these donations go into my medical care.

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

I did not want to get this sick. I wanted to be loved and cared for. My previous owner let me get this way. My medical bills will be ongoing during my treatments to get better. The hope is to not need a medical plan after I heal and repair. I want to live and I want to find my fur-ever family. It will take a village to help me. I need your help please.

I will need a jacket and clothes, warm enough for the cold nights and days left. I am still missing fur. The clothes that will suit me best can be found at my Amazon Wish List. Warmer and cooler jumpers can be found there as well. Thank you.

How To Help Mr Banks

Please consider making a small tax deductible donation for my medical care. Also help get the word out and share my plea. Without your help, MGF cannot rescue more like me. Community donations are their only source of funding.

100% of these donations will go to my medical cost. Should my medical bills get paid off, it will go towards my care and feeding that the Howell's are currently paying for out of their personal funds. They are unpaid volunteers. This foundation is their way to help dogs like Miss Gabriel Howell.

Please consider signing up for a $1 or more, monthly reoccurring donation.

Thank you!
