Sweet Prince
On Sunday, January 21, we learned about a Golden at a local shelter who was in desperate need for a rescue to take him. We quickly went to work, and on Wednesday, January 24, we went to get him. Seeing that first photo of Prince was alarming but seeing him in person left us without words and almost in tears. We were shocked and saddened to see this dog in such an emaciated and horrific condition. Clearly, this dog needed urgent medical attention, so we immediately took him to a veterinary hospital.

                                       Prince leaving the shelter​                                                                            Prince's Freedom Ride!

For four weeks he remained in the hospital for tests, special food, medications, and medicated baths. So malnourished, Prince was weak, and his skin itched horribly, yet he still amazed everyone with his friendly demeanor and always – a wagging tail!

Estimated to be around six, we wondered: How long had Prince been starving and suffering so? Was it for all his young life? We will never know, and it doesn’t matter. What matters is that he is being cared for and loved – perhaps for the first time in his life.

Now Prince is in a loving foster home. He has been to a veterinary dermatologist who, after biopsies and many other tests, provided us with this information.

Prince suffers from severe allergies, secondary skin and ear infections and an antibiotic-resistant staph infection. The allergies have also caused him to suffer from a serious case of alopecia over most of his body, including around his eyes. Starved for so long, he’s had no energy but with new meds and treatments, he has finally started to heal.

                Still thin but starting to gain weight & his hair is growing!​                                               Pampered Prince at home!

This is a long and costly process that included a lengthy stay at one vet hospital, a visit to a second vet, and a dermatologist. That bill was over $800. Follow-up visits will be at least $200 each and a new antibiotic is $125 for a two-week supply.

Prince in now living his second life story. It’s clear that he still has a long way to go, but with your prayers and donations and our commitment to this sweet, gentle boy, this story is already on its way to a happy ending!

Prince has suffered for so long. We hope you will want to be 
part of his healing process by making a special donation today!

Thank you!
