It is hard to believe this little girl is still wagging her tail, but she is! What a little trooper. Xena lost her home in the Katrina disaster and was dropped at a shelter. We are not sure what condition she looked like going in but a few months of sitting in a shelter caused her case of mange to go full blown. Stress will bring it out and I am sure this little sweetie has had a lot of that. She is in the best possible hands now, has been to the vet and is getting everything the vet has prescribed and lots of TLC. She is obviously not up for adoption yet and we will keep everyone posted on her improvements. Keep her in your thoughts. Click here for photos
2-15-06 Illinois Doberman Rescue would like to thank everyone who donated money to go towards Xena's medical bills. Xena is doing very well and responding to treatment. Her infections are all cleared up and her Demodectic Mange is responding to treatment also. Her hair is starting to grow back and her skin is looking a lot less like a dinosaur. We are hoping she will be ready to adopt within the next 6 weeks. Xena is great with adults and children as well as other dogs. She seems to have had some experience raising puppies and has adopted a litter of Doberman - Boxer pups as her own.
