Gabriel: has endured the unthinkable neglect at the hands of humans!
This boy's name is Gabriel. His name means "man of strength". Troy Animal Rescue named him this because he is a fighter- and he is going to need to continue fighting! Gabriel was found by a kind biker in Enterprise, AL. He was taken to a local rescue there but they unfortunately didn't have the quarantine space available. They contacted TARP and they immediately decided to take him. Gabriel is around 6-8 months old. We are guessing at breeds right now - as most identifiable features are hidden by the mange.
Gabriel is suffering from a horrible case of demodex mange. He also has a raging infection (why his feet are so swollen) and a bad case of hookworms. Gabriel is painfully thin - as you can see the outline of every bone. Right now, he has received treatment for his medical issues. He is currently on antibiotics. Gabriel doesn't feel very well so he hasn't done much more than stay curled up in a ball in his kennel.
He is thankfully eating and drinking just fine so that will eventually get his strength up - once the fluid in his feet go down and they aren't so painful, he will begin to walk more. Gabriel has a long road ahead of him but we are determined for him to be a happy, healthy boy one day!
Gabriel has endured the unthinkable neglect at the hands of humans! But you can help!
UPDATE GABRIEL : Gabriel is doing wonderful in his foster home. He can now walk around without his feet hurting him. This is huge because his feet were so infected. He even will sit for treats. His skin is getting better day by day. He is also great with his foster fur-brothers and sisters. He even likes cats.
UPDATE: HE IS ADOPTED! Our sweet Gabriel (who came to TARP from a bike trail in Enterprise covered in mange) has found his forever home! He has two awesome parents and a sister that he already loves! We are so happy for him! This is the power behind a Hendrick & Co product!
