Precious, This Poor Ancient Poodle

joined us from a pound, where she had been left by her beloved owners, to be euthanized. Alone, scared, blind, unloved, very matted, and terribly thin, she patiently awaited her fate. When her time was up, she got to come to Rikki's Refuge. Clipping, washing, medicating, loving, and holding is what she needed. Soon she began to pick up weight. She is on five medications for her heart every day. Drops for her eyes, to keep them comfortable, even though she's blind. Medication to help heal her gums until she is strong enough to undergo dental surgery. Medication to keep her digestion working. And several little tins of special Little Caesar's dog food.
