Pemberly has had 9 quarts of fluid removed from her belly after being abused!
This is horrible. No, she is not pregnant! This is The Arrow Fund's 2nd intake in one night! They are calling this baby Pemberly. She was removed from home by the police. This is severe neglect and abuse. This girl can't even lay down.
She has been rushed to Blue Pearl Emergency Vet Hospital for life saving care. Pemberly is having tests run now. This heartbreaking case have left rescuers in tears. She is infested with fleas and intestinal parasites. She is severely anemic and a blood transfusion was administered right away. Fluid is being drawn as well from from her belly. So far 5 quarts have been removed! This is horrible you guys. She is in critical condition.
Please help The Arrow Fund save Pemberly. We will keep everyone update on her care but they cannot save her without your help. The way the cases keep coming they sure could use your help! This is incredibly sad and the worst part is that it was done by her owner. Thank you for supporting us as we help these horrific cases of severe torture, abuse, and neglect. The Arrow Fund is a licensed Non Profit Organization and rely solely on donations to continue their life-saving work. They cannot do this without you.
UPDATE 6-28-17: Today Pemberly saw Dr. Sarah Bell a cardiologist and she was diagnosed with a Cor Triattriatum Dexter or CTD . This is a congenital defect. The abnormality is a partition within the right atrium, leading to the obstruction of venous blood return from the back half of her body to the heart . This obstruction leads to an enlargement of the liver and fluid accumulation within the abdomen also known as ascites. In Pemberly's case , this membrane has a hole or perforation in it so that there is some blood flow between the two right atrial chambers. Dogs with this condition are often thin due to loss of high protein fluid in their abdomen and abnormal uptake from their GI tract. Pemberly will be taken on July 11th to receive a cardiac procedure called a balloon valvuloplasty . This will be done by the Cardiac Surgeon at Ohio State University.
On July 11th The Arrow Fund will be taking Pemberly to Ohio State for heart surgery . We should be there for 3 days . Please continue to send our girl love .Pemberly is so amazing . She loves everyone! The Arrow Fund desperately needs your help!
HEART SURGERY COMPLETED at Ohio State University and Pemberly is in ICU . We were told the procedure went well and the surgeon actually drained more fluid from her frail body . Please keep our baby close to your heart as she recovers . She is truly a sweetheart....If all goes well , our Pemberly can travel tomorrow back to Louisville to Blue Pearl and then to a foster home soon . With more excess fluid you can now tell how literally emaciated Pemberly is.
Today our sweet Pemberly received her 2nd heart surgery at Ohio State University. This time a pediatric stent was inserted. This girl just makes everyone feel better just to be around her! Please keep her close to your heart tonight as she recovers in the cardiac unit at OSU. She is resting comfortably at this time. We want to thank the Pemberton family , who has gone over and above for this precious baby. They actually are with her now at OSU. With that being said Pemberly and The Arrow Fund still desperately need your help. The two heart surgeries plus ICU care is a huge undertaking and they can use all the help you can give.

UPDATE - Ready for Adoption
2 HEART SURGERIES AND NOW THRIVING! The Arrow Fund’s Pemberly is now looking for her forever home. She insisted on telling you about herself! This girl will melt your heart immediately! She is a miracle and we are so happy that The Arrow Fund could provide the lifesaving heart surgeries that will now enable her to live a normal life ! Please read and share her story.Hi ! My name is Pemberly and I'm a happy-go-lucky 2 year old girl. My foster mom says I'm a "miracle." I'm not really sure what that means, but I do know I finally feel like a normal, healthy dog!I love all of my human friends, even the little ones (I'm perfect height for toddler kisses.) I like my older sister, Bella, who is chill and doesn't challenge me but I'm not a big fan of my other sister who runs the house. I know how to walk on a leash, wait to potty until you get home, and use a dog door. Going to work with my people is my favorite. I get to go on a car ride, see new people, take a walk at lunch, and wear one of my sweaters. Cuddling is my other favorite. I'll sit next to you on the sofa, cuddle in bed, and give so many kisses. I even put myself to bed when 10:00 comes so I'm ready to be tucked in when my sister comes to bed.I would love a home where I have kids to play with and pet me. I'm ok with having another brother or sister as long as I get to be the one in charge, and I would LOVE to get to go out with my people sometimes"
