Puddin This sweet boy is only 3 years old. He came in to rescue due to chronic skin infections. After doing skin biopsies, he has been diagnosed with Phemphigus. This is a treatable auto-immune condition that can not be cured, but we hope to have him in remission soon. He will be a special needs adoption and will make someone very happy. After just a week of treatment, he is looking much better!
UPDATE 7/23: Puddin is doing well on his treatment plan, which includes many baths and medications. He is looking and feeling SO MUCH Better! Puddin has a great temperament and would do well with other dogs and kids too. He is feeling better and even played tug of war with his foster brother the other day! Puddin will be available for adoption when his phemphigus goes into remission. Flare ups will always be possible though, so we will need an adopter willing to take on Puddin’s special needs.
Update 9/7: Puddin continues to make great strides and we are hopeful should be ready for adoption soon! It’s amazing how far he has come with the right medication and treatment plan! Puddin does great with other dogs and really enjoys their company.
UPDATE 10/12: Puddin continues to progress it looks like he is nearing remission and should be ready soon to start looking for his forever family.
UPDATE: 1/7 Unfortunately, Puddin’s progress has stopped and he has regressed. We are closely monitoring him, but sadly his liver levels are not good and his skin is worsening. Puddin will continue to stay with his foster parents it looks like.
