UPDATE: Puddin is now ready to find his forever home! Puddin is looking so much better and has been doing well on his current treatment plan. Pemphigus is an auto-immune issue affecting his skin, so it will never completely go away but hopefully with the proper treatment it can be kept at bay. His future family will need to continue to monitor how he does and adjust any meds accordingly with a great veterinarian. Puddin has a fantastic temperament and would make a great addition to any home. He does very good with other dogs! Puddin loves car rides and is fully house trained. Look how great he looks now compared to his before photos!
Puddin This sweet boy is only 4 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!
