Had Grace Anne been full of baby fur with fluffy little paws and a curled up tail, potential adopters would have stopped at her kennel the moment they saw her. Puppies have the easiest time finding homes – even at the overcrowded Harris County Animal Shelter located in Houston, Texas.
‘”Grace Anne’ is just a baby. Like our friend Gregory last month, she doesn’t know she is ugly. She just knows that no one stops to look at her. Do you see her? She’s 4 months old. She craves love. Easily treatable demodex mange. Adoptable or donate for rescue and offer to foster.”
Shame on the person who called this four-month-old Grace Anne their puppy before she became sick and tossed her away like an old shoe. According to the shelter, the mastiff mix is so very itchy. Her skin has turned bright pink, she’s nearly bald and what’s left of her coat has turned yellow. Demodex is a common infestation of a puppy’s skin comprised of tiny, cigar shaped, eight legged mites that live and feed in the hair follicles and oil glands. Aside from the mange, GraceAnne also has a secondary skin infection that will have to be treated.
