Meggie Rose’s story

Update 9-07-02....MEGGIE ROSE is looking good and feeling so much better!  She has her pretty blue hair back as can be seen by her latest pictures.  She is continuing on her all natural raw diet and has now stopped itching.  She loves the company of her other foster and resident Dane pals and will even take a spin at playing all by her self!  She does laps like the WIND around the swimming pool, leaving the others behind in a cloud of dust!  She is happy, obedient, very mannerly, and tries very hard to please.  She is definitely a people dog and will follow her foster mom all over the house and assume the position of foot warmer!  She is very loving and affectionate and exhibits CRUSHED feelings if she has to be corrected for anything!  She gets along very well with other dogs and is very gentle with the resident cat (who is dog-savvy but appreciates a cat lovin' pooch any day!).  She is beautifully crate trained and walks like a dream on a loose leash.  She is very agile and will make a wonderful obedience and agility dog.  Though MeggieRose is small, she definitely shows the big Dane spirit, intelligence and gentleness and will make some special person an amazing, loyal companion

MEGGIE ROSE. She is two years old, blue in color, very petite at 26 ˝ inches at her shoulder, and may have been either stunted in her growth because of her near death as a baby, or she may be a Dane cross. Either way, she has the Dane character! She is like a little mini-Dane. She is sweet, pretty, loving, affectionate, and nosy! She wants to be with you where ever you are, and loves to give big lap hugs! She is smart as a whip, VERY obedient and has been impressively schooled in obedience and does it very willingly and well. She is very good with other dogs, excellent with cats, and is friendly and waggy with everyone she meets. She is gentle, graceful, loving, and very responsive to commands and especially to love and affection. She is beautifully crate trained and has excellent house manners. She likes stuffed 'babies' and tuggy ropes and loves when she can engage anyone to play with her. She is calm and likes to be touching you or asleep at your feet. She is a wonderful companion dog.

Meggie Rose has been suffering from recurring demodectic mange (not contagious) since she was found as an 8-week-old puppy. She was the victim of a greedy back yard breeder that tried to sell her from the back end of his truck in a parking lot when she was 8 weeks old. And when he couldn’t sell her, he threw her on the side of the road to die. Fortunately, a rescuer found her just in time. She was almost dead from exposure, dehydration, fever, both sarcoptic and demodectic manges, internal parasites and severely infected and bleeding skin. Her life was just barely saved. She was placed in a very loving home for the last 2 years but she became overly stressed at the addition of a new born baby that she thought was an intruding 'animal', of which she was very jealous and suspicious. She broke out severely with the demodex again and for her own sake and the new infant’s she was sadly and reluctantly returned to our rescue.

It is believed that stress compromises her immune system, allowing the demodex to take over her body. This has caused her to have to take multiple chemical dips, antibiotics for the skin infections and medications for terrible itchiness caused by the mange as well as from the medications. She was living with many other dogs, cats, birds, even a squirrel, and only older kids until the infant was brought home. We are guessing that the multi-pet and 'busy' household might have caused excess stress to Meggie Rose, who would love to have ALL the attention she can get. And, hence, the recurring demodectic mange outbreaks. We will be looking for a quiet, less stressful home for her when she recovers from her illness.

We are putting Meggie Rose on a special all-natural diet, devoid of commercially processed dog foods, and adding natural supplements, combined with a low stress atmosphere. We hope that this will help her 'cure' herself by boosting her immune system and relieve her of this most uncomfortable and, if left unattended, eventually deadly condition. She cannot go on indefinitely getting poisonous dips and medications without adverse effects. We are going to try to give Meggie Rose everything she needs to get well. If we are lucky and find the answer, we hope it will help other dogs that are suffering in this way!

Your help is needed to help Meggie Rose's fight for a cure! This is a costly venture, totally worth the cause, but financially inhibitive for our rescue which operates only on contributions, donations and the goodness and hearts of our foster homes. If you are able to contribute toward Meggie Rose's fight to be well, please check the contact page for our address, and make a note that your donation is for her! Thank you!
