Meet Mica. Can one even imagine an emaciated and nearly hairless young dog barely weighing four pounds dumped at a shelter in South Carolina?
Extremely depressed and miserable, the two-year-old Chihuahua mix is likely suffering from severe flea allergies. Fortunately, the compassionate staff at the rural shelter called Rescue Dogs Rock NYC asking for help.
Picked up on Friday afternoon, Mica was headed to the organization’s partner veterinarian, where her condition appears to be untreated flea dermatitis … completely treatable had her previous family been responsible owners.
Blood work has not come back yet, however Mica is already winning over hearts.
“Libba Ulery I picked Mica up from the Vet this afternoon…..she is an absolute doll and very loving! Gives the best kisses and ate a really good dinner. She is skin and bones but in my eyes she is an absolute beauty!!”
And now Mica is beginning her new life.
” Mica’s suffering has ended, but we are only able to do so many of these medical cases with your support and help,” stated Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. Follow Mica’s progress on Facebook .
