Little Daphne arrived at a local shelter after she was found in the woods with a harness tangled around her neck. She was in bad shape and the shelter contacted Old Dog Haven so they wouldn’t have to put her down.
ODH fosters took her in and got her to the vet right away. Daphne’s jaws were very tender because her teeth were badly infected, and she was suffering from a bladder infection. She was treated for the bladder infection and, as soon as she’d recovered from that, she received the dental care she so desperately needed. She came away with two lone teeth! The vet removed her fluid-filled uterus as well, and like so many of our ODH seniors after receiving proper care, Daphne immediately showed signs of feeling much improved.
Her ODH Final Refuge family tells us: “From the start, Daphne was a loving, sweet natured girl, but since recovering from all of her ailments, she now has the energy to show her spunky, feisty side. She spends her days following us around and her nights asleep beside our heads on a pillow. Her first two weeks with us, we didn’t think she had a voice, but now she barks with excitement every breakfast and dinner until her bowl is put before her. She isn’t afraid to stand her ground with the other dogs, and she’s simply the cutest little fuzzy britches. She always has the funniest bewildered look on her face and we call her our little fruit bat. She is much adored. We’re so glad we took her in.”
