A note from Christopher

by lindsaymccay • Posted in: Rescue



Hi my name is Christopher! I know, I know, I’m the saddest looking puppy in the world! But don’t let my lack of a furry face change your opinion of me – I’m one happy, waggy tailed puppy. Even though I’m suffering from a skin problem, I’m feeling pretty lucky right now. I was dropped off at the shelter when my parents couldn’t keep me anymore, and since I’m so young and my fur has all fallen out, they decided to euthanize me. Thankfully, Austin Pets Alive! saw me, not the “ugly duckling” I am now, but the real adorable me I’ll grow up to be and saved my life! Now all I have to do is keep taking my medicine and the folks at APA! say I’ll be all better in a month or two. Unfortunately, I have to take medicine every day for at least 8 weeks, which will cost APA! quite a bit of money. Won’t you please donate some money to APA! so they can continue to save lives like mine? Thanks a bunch!

    I’m fostering Christopher because he’s not feeling well (on top of the mange). I have to admit that when I saw Christopher yesterday I started crying and I wasn’t the only one. I have never seen mange this bad and he was just breaking our hearts just lying there barely moving. He’s been home almost a day now but he still just lies around. When I pick him up to carry him outside he whines because he has so many raw spots. This boy needs an immediate adopter, someone who will bathe him once a day, give him his medicine and return him to the darling puppy he once was. If you are that person imagine the bond created. You will have brought him back to life and he will acknowledge you as his champion and will love you unconditionally as your reward. Please come to the aid of this boy!

    No dog is ugly when you look into their sweet eyes! Thanks for taking such good care of him.

    I saw this sweet baby out on SoCo yesterday, and immediately loved him. If I were in a position to have a dog right now, I’d have snatched him right up. How can anyone not love those ears?! Thanks so much for watching out for him.
