Cashmere, the super soft-natured puppy

Cashmere 2

Hello! My name is Cashmere!  I am a 5 month old pit bull from Austin, TX.  My last owners thought that I would look tougher without my ears so they tried to remove them.  As I am at least 4 months old, the cartilage in my ears was fully developed, so this amateur, unethical procedure was very painful and has left me physically scarred.  As a result of this “cosmetic” abuse, I now have a raging bacterial infection on the site where my beautiful ears once wagged playfully. (see photo here)

I am so very lucky that APA! saved me from the shelter, as I am now resting comfortably with a caring foster and am getting the medical attention I need to heal what is left of my poor ears!  APA! is taking really good care of me, but my medical expenses are adding up daily.  If any of you nice people that are reading about me could give even $1.00 towards my expenses it would enable me and other shelter friends of mine to continue getting proper medical care.  I can’t wait to be adopted by a family that loves me for the dog I am–a bright, playful pit bull ready to forgive and forget my tough beginning.

    Bless your precious little heart, Cashmere. It made me cry to hear your story, for I really feel that your previous owners should have their ears cut off. You are still a beautiful girl and I am sure you are sweet as pie, too. My heart aches knowing you have such infections in your ears. Your new owner is quite lucky to have you as a new friend, I am jealous! I know you will be spoiled rotten like a pet should be and will bring your owner lots of joy and smiles. Stay sweet and enjoy life. I hope to meet you some day. By the way, Pitts are one of my favorite breeds, next to Jack Russell Terriers.
    Good luck and lots of love.
