Dottie came to New Hope through a partner veterinary clinic that had Dottie surrendered to them. She is only about 8 weeks old and we wanted to give her an opportunity to get the treatment she was in need of. She was diagnosed with parvovirus and sarcoptic mange.
Sarcoptic mange is a highly contagious skin disease found in dogs, caused by the Sarcoptes scabiei mite. These mites will burrow through the skin causing intense itching and irritation. This is a treatable medical condition, but is highly contagious for other animals and humans. This is very uncomfortable condition for Dottie, but with medical treatment she will be healthy in no time.
Parvovirus is a highly contagious disease and can be prevented by vaccinating your pets on a routine basis. Dottie will spend sometime with her loving foster home while she gets her mange treated and we look forward to her finding a forever home when she is healthy.
Update: Dottie has been adopted and has found an amazing family to call her own!
If you would like to donate towards Dottie’s medical expenses, please consider donating to our Guardian of Hope fund. This fund goes directly towards Dottie’s medical costs and other dogs that join New Hope Dog Rescue’s foster care program that have additional medical care needed during their stay with us.
