Otto was abandoned by his family in an empty home.
We have created this tee shirt campaign to help raise the funds needed to save a dog who was abandoned by his family.
Otto was found in Detroit, abandoned, dumped, in a yard. A neighbor saw his lifeless body covered in flies. When approached rescuers saw that he has clearly given up. He has been neglected for a long his nails have started to curl in on themselves.
Our partners at Misfit Angels Rescue arrived on scene and he just laid there not knowing what was in store. He didn’t move and wouldn’t even pick up his head.
Volunteers rushed Otto straight to the Emergency Vet to be stabilized. Doctors discovered he has over an 1/2 inch thick layer of infected and hardened skin around his entire body. His demodex mange is one of the worst we have seen.
Here is what we know. He had a full blood panel done and a fecal panel (results pending). His nails were cut, his ears were cleaned and doctors put him on several different medications which he will stay on for some time.
As if Otto didn’t have enough going on. His rescuers got his full blood panel results back and it revealed a low thyroid so there will be more medication for this littleguy.
UPDATE 10-9-18: Baby Otto is fresh out of his bath! He is only on his 4th medicated bath and there’s only 2 spots of yeast left! This is great progress! His foot is way better with meds and epsom salt soaks. His foster mom shares that he is now fully potty train 2 weeks today!
This kind of care will cost rescuers hundreds of dollars. To help with all of the specialty care and vetting for Otto please consider purchasing one of his shirts, bracelets or coffee mugs below. With every purchase you can help Misfit Angels Rescue give him a second chance at life and love.
Within just a few weeks, Otto's transformation has been nothing short of amazing.
Otto has gained 12 pounds and now weighs 54 pounds! He was able to start his vaccines too! What we know about Otto so far: he is a chill dog, so a home with small kids or high energy dogs would not fit him well. He is still learning to go potty outside every time. It's hit or miss right now even if he just walks in from outside. There are quite a few things that MUST be done every day including, clean under his nubby tail, clean under the skin flap over his nose (hes not a fan but it needs to be done), check and clean his feet daily (things get stuck in there like a acorn or a piece of food ), his ears need cleaned weekly (now that he has had a ton removed from them). He is a high maintenance dog in this aspect.
