Ducky was born with special needs and his family left him at a shelter.
Mr. Ducky’s story: As you can see Ducky was born with special needs. His story is sad. H was adopted as a puppy from Dallas Animal Shelter but then found as a stray a couple of weeks ago by DAS (a year and half later from his original adoption). Ducky’s family DIDN’T come to get him from the shelter. They just abandoned him because of his special needs.
So Dallas Dog rrr rescued him. At the vet it was discovered that his neurological tics, facial deformities, and rotting teeth all were likely side effects of surviving distemper. Distemper has an 80% mortality rate in puppies and so Ducky is a living miracle.
Hey Everyone! Mr Ed Ducky is going to be having a big procedure on Monday to get his teeth removed since they don’t have enamel from the distemper and are completely rotted. I would like to help raise money towards his procedure with a goal of $1,000 towards his medical care to his rescue Dallas Dog - Rescue.Rehab.Reform.We have partnered with Dallas Dog to offer these custom Save Ducky products. I drew his photo by hand and wanted to create a special way to help this very special boy. Please consider donating or purchasing one of our Ducky masks, mug, water bottle and coaster.
UPDATE: 8/14/20 - Guess what?? Ducky just got out of his dental surgery and... drum roll please.... is doing fantastic. Of course he has a ton of healing to do. You guys know he is facing several issues - distemper survivor who has facial differences, neurological tics, a little clumsy, and had most of his teeth removed due to enamel not forming due to a virus which causes his tongue to hang out. Yes, he looks different than other dogs but to me thats what makes him so special and worth fighting for. Will you fight with us? To think his family left him at a shelter just boggles my mind.but his rescuers says he is "literally an amazing dog". You guys hes a giant love bug. To think his family left him at a shelter just boggles my mind. When will people understand? We started a campaign here to help tiny Duc
