Dane Angel Network Enterprise
Dedicated to help Great Danes have a life
of quality with dignity and love.
She is a 8 month old female puppy. She has
rampant Demodectic mange, swollen infected feet and skin, pus-filled eyes,
fever, and a urinary tract infection! She was so sick and weak, she had to
be carried into the veterinary hospital, shivering and bleeding from skin
sores. Rather than provide the necessary medical care, her owners were
going to shoot her. A young Good Samaritan stopped them and called our
Dane Angel Network imploring us to help save this innocent young dog.
...And presenting, the New Mercedes!
She has improved in record time (only two
months!) with much medications, and a special diet and supplements to help
immune system so that she could heal herself. She has had the necessary
harsh dips to kill the demodectic mange that had taken over her whole
body, and has now grown a soft healthy coat as can be seen in her new
photos of her standing proud! There are a few scabs left that are also
going away but she has made a striking recovery in a short amount of time.
She has survived the ugly neglect that caused her to fail in health and
have to be carried, sick and bleeding into our veterinarian's office in
February. Her foster home has provided an important loving and nurturing
environment in which Mercedes felt safe, loved and happy and has helped
her to blossom into the young, healthy puppy she is today. She is great
with kids, large and small dogs and anybody that walks up to meet her. She
is outgoing, waggy and very responsive and affectionate. She will probably
be a small Dane due to her severe illness, but she has a year and 3 more
months to mature and grow! She is a testimony to the forgiving and gentle
nature of the Great Dane breed and will make a wonderful addition to the
lucky adopters that get her!"
If you follow this web page, you have been

to be with, as all good Danes are, and shows all kinds of signs of real

Foster Family Feedback
Mercedes is shy but very sweet and wants to
trust. She is a very sick little girl that will have to be kept under the
veterinarian's care until she is well enough to go to a foster home. Her
rehabilitation will be expensive and take a while but we are hopeful she
will make a full recovery. Anyone wishing to help us with her medical
bills, please click on the Contacts page on our website for the address to
send a donation, or call one of our volunteers listed for questions.
Mercedes finally was able to go to a foster home,
Monday, February 12 2002, after several weeks of being in the Vet
hospital. Her foster family say she is definately on the mend! She has put
on some weight and her sores are healing. She is doing very well learning
her house manners including potty training, likes her crate and has
already learned "sit" for her treats. Mercedes enjoys the company of the
fosters three children and is starting to play. Mercedes definately craves
