Chloe CGC (and a few pix!)
2 years ago I stopped by the City of Houston shelter to evaluate a Doberman for the rescue I volunteer with. After evaluating the dog and arranging for him to be bathed before I took him home as a foster, I heard a little bark in the kennel run next to him.
She was completely hairless and bloody from sarcoptic mange with cute little floppy ears. Her kennel card said she was a 10 week old lab mix. For whatever reason, probably her terrible condition, I asked the kennel tech about her. He said they had been calling her "Mangey Puppy" and despite her obvious condition she was very sweet and curious. Then he said words that about killed me, "She is to be euthanized at 3pm today." I looked at my watch and it was already 2:15! "Load her up and give me some foster paper work...she's not dying today," I said.
After 2-3 weeks of mange dips and good food, her coat started coming in beautifully. She was a gorgeous blonde with black, shepherd-like markings. Her ears were sort of floppy, but only the tips. And boy, was she a trouble maker!
About a month later, imagine my surprise when I came home from work to a dog with pointy shepherd ears!! They were huge!
Today, that "mangey puppy" is named Chloe
and yesterday she passed her CGC!
She has been a permanent resident since she got here. I was only fooling myself with that foster paperwork.
I lovingly refer to her as my "golden shepherd" but she truly believes she's all Doberman!

She is just beautiful! If you dipped with demodex, be glad. The sarcoptic mange dip is awful! Smells like rotten eggs and leaves the coat feeling like steel wool.

What a wonderful story, and she's a lucky girl. Beautiful, too. We'd take some more pictures, if you have some to share!
