Foxy was slated to be euthanized after being brought to the shelter.
We have created this tee shirt campaign to help raise the funds needed to save a puppy fighting for her life.
This 5 pound baby was brought to the shelter pouring blood from her rectum and throwing up. I know this is graphic but this is the reality we are facing. The shelter tried contacting rescues to help but non could so Foxy was going to be euthanized. Thankfully The Arrow Fund rescue team was 2 hours away and a Volunteer rushed the tiny puppy straight to their emergency vet clinic.
Originally, It was stated that Foxy would not have lasted through the night. This is why we waited to launch this case. Now, a week later Foxy has beat the odds and is still fighting but remains in critical condition. Rescuers and authorities have no idea how she got this way. There are no leads.
She is being fed through her IV because she is unable to hold down food. Diarrhea still watery and bloody. Foxy is just starting to stand up on her own. She is negative for parvovirus but has SEVERE Hemorrhagic Gastroenteritis. Foxy was so infested with fleas they were just falling off her. She is severely dehydrated and has low blood sugar from weeks of vomiting and diarrhea. There is still blood present in her urine. The good news is Foxy is resting in a warm bed tonight in the critical care ward.
Please keep Foxy close to your heart tonight. She has a very uphill battle to recover.
UPDATE 10-25-18: The 5 pound adorable Foxy was released from the hospital and headed to her amazing foster mommy. Foxy came to T.A.F. near death . In fact, had rescuers not quickly intervened, she most likely would not have made it . Now she will continue to heal in a loving home .Our thanks to Suzann and Don Thompson for stepping up to foster our little girl!
