I ran into this poor dog a few weeks ago while walking my own dogs and haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. It’s in such a horrible state that I really want to do something for it. However, having three dogs of my own already, I can’t bring it to my apartment for fear that they will catch whatever skin disease this poor thing has. Does anyone know what she might have from the picture or know of a good vet that might let me put her up while she’s getting treatment? I thought she was a giant rat at first, but then I realized she is actually a dog. She looks like a pure bread Dachshund or some kind of similar mix. She reminded me of those dogs that AT in Kaohsiung rescued a while back from that crazy lady. If she can actually grow her hair back like those dogs did, I think she would be pretty adoptable. She has really nice teeth and was friendly when I approached her to feed her. She actually had a rubberband around her neck that I removed before it could cause any serious damage.
A vet near the Taichung would be most helpful or at least any advice on what I could do for this poor thing. Like all of us, I am constantly passing by dogs that I wish I could do something for but this one is particularly hard for me to let go. Any suggestions are really appreciated.
