Every year Jennie Dhanjal from K9 Search UK calls us with a desperate case that needs nothing short of a Christmas miracle. Every year with hard work and your help our prayers are answered and a life is saved.
This year is no exception. The call to an emaciated dog found curled up on a nature reserve by a member of the public in DY2 was answered by Lin. This poor baby was rushed to Yourvets Smethwick where she was assessed by our vets. Given a body score of 0.5 out of 5 this girl weighs 17.5KG - My God, she should be a minimum of 45kg!
She has had an ultrasound, bloods taken and given intravenous broad spectrum antibiotics and fluids for severe dehydration, her liver enzymes are raised so the vets are having to be careful what she is treated with. She is also having miniscule amounts of wet food regularly and will have more tests when she is stable.
We need everyone who reads this to share everywhere. Someone knows where this girl has come from we need to know where.
We will post regular updates as we know more - please join us in praying for this years Christmas miracle and send healing to Elsa as we have named her.

Meeting Elsa for the very first time
Long nails, poor girl
For anyone that missed out recent post information.
Elsa will hopefully be moving into foster care on saturday as long as she continues to improve but she still has a long way to go in her rehab.
We are not considering any home offers for her until she is fully healed and assessed as to what her requirements in any future home will be as obviously this may change as she becomes fitter.
We will continue with daily updates until Boxing day and then every few days after that.
We are deeply touched by everyones concern and support of our beautiful girl and as soon as she is strong enough will be arranging a public meet and greet for anyone that wants to come and see her and will post information on this page.
Merry Christmas to you all from Team Animal House and our christmas angel of course Elsa.
