Tucson Urgent: Duchess Needs Foster Home – Updateby Karyn Zoldan on Mar. 30, 2013, under Adopt Me! Adopt Me! Adopt Me!, Dogs, Canines, Fun with Fido, Barking Encouraged
Update: Duchess found a foster home today. Thank you Cold Wet Noses. Also someone by the name of Michelle gave her a trim so her hair was no longer matted. In the photo of Facebook she looks hopeful. Thank you to whoever fostered her. You can follow the PACC dogs on Facebook.
Update #2: Tonight (Tuesday) I found out that Petra from PAWSitively Cats is fostering Duchess who is now in a home with six cats! Petra learned about Duchess from reading Tucson Tails and could not get this special dog out of her mind. Thank you Petra and Cold Wet Noses.
Can someone help this sweet girl? Look at that smile…she’s waiting for you.
Duchess is a 60-ish lb female Chow mix. She is 5 years old and came in with Duke, the 10 yr old Belgian Malinois, who was on last night’s rescue list. Duchess is extremely matted along her spine (feels like dense sheep wool.) She has also had severe diarrhea with a considerable amount of blood. It appears to be more stress related at this point.
Duchess will be held through a minimum of 5 pm on March 31 for rescue efforts. Despite her very poor condition, she is a sweetheart who stands up and wags her tail to greet you.
Duchess has so little time to live; she will be euthanized if not spoken for. This is no way to treat a Duchess who is at Pima Animal Care – Her number is A429517. Don’t delay!
