Maz is a tiny Chihuahua who was one in a large group of dogs living in filthy conditions in an RV. She was not altered, underweight and with a rotting mouth, and she had chocolate caramels stuck to her hair! She was a very sick little girl when she came to her Old Dog Haven home. She was not eating much at all and she was throwing up blood clots and passing them as well. It is obvious that Maz had been having puppies and painfully obvious that she was not socialized with people at all. She is afraid of most all people, excepting her Final Refuge foster mom.
Thankfully, Maz likes other dogs and seems to take comfort in curling up next to the other dogs in her Final Refuge home. It took a couple of months but we were able to stabilize Maz so that she could be spayed and she had a “starter” dental- that means her teeth were cleaned and the teeth that were literally hanging by threads were pulled. Her teeth had been rotting for so long her lower jaw is fractured so she needs to see a dental specialist in the near future. Maz is a lovely little dog and we are happy that she seems much more comfortable now.
We hope over time she will learn that the people she comes into contact with now only want to keep her safe and love her.
