Shanta: Years of neglect leaves this 7 pound dog in critical condition

Shanta: Years of neglect leaves this 7 pound dog in critical condition

 

UPDATE ****

Shanta had her first surgery to remove one of the mammary tumors on her belly . Due to the size of the tumors and the fact that Shanta is so tiny, there is grave concern that Shanta does not have enough healthy skin to close around the gaping hole left by the tumor. Therefore she will need multiple surgeries to remove each tumor to insure that there is enough skin to close around the hole left from the tumor removal.

In between surgeries Shanta is recovering at a wonderful medical foster home and she is resting comfortably. Please pray for Shanta. This poor baby did not deserve to be so neglected and to live in pain like this for years and years

END UPDATE ****

Rescue Dogs Rock NYC rescued Shanta from the NYC high kill shelter when a plea went out by the shelter. They took one look at Shanta's shelter photo and read her medical write up and they knew they had to step in and help her.

Shanta is in very critical condition due to years of neglect. She is in much worse shape than the shelter initially reported. Shanta has 2 huge mammary tumors and one has erupted and burst. The tumors are so big that they expand the length of her tiny stomach. She is only 7 pounds and to remove them will leave her with little skin on her belly.

This surgery will be extremely complicated due to the size of the tumors.

Additionally Shanta has a grade 4 heart murmur which makes any surgery risky but there is no choice here as Shanta must have the tumors removed as they are infected. Shanta has diseased and decaying teeth that will also need to be addressed as they are rotten and painful.

We are so sad for this poor innocent frail senior left in such horrific neglect. It really is unfathomable how this tiny 7 lb baby could have lived in agony for so long.

Rescue Dogs Rock NYC will do everything medically possible to give Shanta a fighting chance to have the life she was always meant to have. But, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC and Shanta need your help today. With each and every purchase you make, Hendrick & Co. will donate $10 to help save Shanta.
