Mopsy: old and neglected

Information:

Name: Mopsy

Gender: F

Breed: Portuguese podengo

Age: d-o-b: ~2011

Size: small (5kg, 35cm)

Others: dewormed, vaccinated

Story:
A hunter had dogs. He got sick and surrendered the dogs to the shelter.
Lucky them! Years of neglect and abuse are finished.
Mopsy is old. She has been neglected all her life. She is skinny, just skin and bones. We need to feed her well, she needs to put on weight. She has mammary tumors, she will need to be operated and have those removed before they get worse. She has a heart murmur and we will soon know if she needs medications. She has fur loss due to fleas and malnourishment. She has bad teeth, cleaning and pulling out the bad ones is needed.
Hopefully we can deal with some of those problems. The years of neglect left a tall on her, she will never be like new, but she can be a bit better and still have some quality life.
We have already done the usual blood tests and fortunately she is clear of leishmaniose, tick fever and heart worm.

Mopsy is very sweet. She loves people, she wags her tail, she likes to be on the lap. Poor thing, she has never experienced love and affection and she is craving for it. She is friendly with other dogs. Good on the leash.

Sweet Topsy is nice, gentle, sweet. A bit shy at the first encounter but she wants to trust. Good with other dogs. Calm temperament.
Podengos make great pets. They are super gentle and social. We rehomed many podengos and their new “parents” are very happy.
