Cherry… In The Nude.

If we could give Cherry new skin we would…and we wish we could…just wave a magic wand to heal her sores and relieve her discomfort. Anyone out there have a magic wand, anyone?

Wishful thinking, we know. So instead we’re just making sure that Cherry gets routine vet check ups,  regular medicated baths and daily medication to treat the severe demodectic mange that she has been suffering from for most all of her short life. At barley 6 months old Cherry has already had a rough go of it…picked up as stray  living on the streets, suffering from mange covering her whole body from nose to tail… then faced with euthanasia due to her poor condition. When we saw her sad little face, we just couldn’t say no.
So here she is, part of the FDNLS family until she is healthy, hairy and ready for a home of her own. It will be a long journey , but well worth it…this lil girl is sweeter then an ice cream sundae…with a Cherry on top!

She sure could use a full coat of fur and fresh layer of healthy skin…but as we know, these things can’t be bought….and neither can that magic wand. Only time, care, nurturing and treatment can heal sweet Cherry. So please consider ‘Sponsoring’ Cherry by making a donation today, to help us provide Cherry with veterinary care she needs to continue on the road to recovery…

Help us clothe Cherry in a coat of healthy, happy skin.

Keep an eye on the Dog Blog for weekly updates on our sweet lil Cherry bomb.

  2. I hope she is receiving antibiotics in addition to ivermectin for her demodex. Its the secondary infections, not the mites that kill and the mites love pus! Best of luck!

    What a lovebug. I just got my boyfriend (who never donates to anything) to donate along with me. I hope she feels better very soon. Thanks for all you do.

    Thank you so much for taking care of her! Don’t give up hope! There were cases of dogs with equally as severe of mange documented on the dog show Best Friends had and they were able to make a full recovery. I hope Cherry can do the same and I know with your help she has a great chance.

    What a sweetheart! We brought a dog home from Belize several years ago. She had demodectic mange, too — no hair on her body, just lots of oozy, open sores. To top it off, she had heartworm, too. After lots of baths and treatments, she grew a beautiful coat and her personality blossomed. It’s been 11 years, and she (Amber) is still with us — spunky, happy and smiling! We wish the same for Miss Cherry!

    Poor girl. I saw many many dogs like this in Taiwan, and they do very well when given the proper treatment. I’m excited to see what she looks like with a nice furry coat. Good on you guys. Keep up the great work!
