Tuesday Tales, Miss Heidi

This girl has been taken in by the Miss Gabriel Foundation so she can regain her health and find a new home.  These people are doing a great job of helping dogs with difficult histories find a new life. Here's what they say.

Hi my name is Miss Heidi. Dr's think I am 1-2 years old. I am a German Shepherd. Here is my story from my POV.

I was brought in as a stray on October 18th 2015 to Merced County Animal Control, after the Officers took me to a veterinarian. This is where I got some help and started on a medical treatment plan. I still needed more help and I can only be released to another rescue agency.

On October 26th 2015 Miss Gabriel Foundation (MGF) stepped in. They arranged for a local puller, Ms Dagmar, to pick me up and transport me to Oregon to MGF. Thank you Dagmar!

At MGF they will foster me and give me the 24/7 medical care I will need. They have a motto and it is "Giving a second chance to dogs who never had a first chance." MGF needs your help to make this happen.

I saw my new Dr (Dr April) on October 30th 2015. She has a medical plan she believes will help me.

I am emaciated and Dr April believes I had not been fed often. My toe nails are long and need to be cut. My skin has a severe disease where I lost some of my hair, I have many bald patches, I smell very badly, my body is covered in scars and scabs. I am also suffering from kennel cough. I lack in muscles and I stumble a bit. My paws are also swollen. All of these are very painful and uncomfortable. 

I am a little anemic from lack of food and my bleeding/oozing sores. I have wounds and scars all over my body and I am missing fur from about 1/4 of my body. My white blood cell is high due to my many infections. I am also very afraid of everything and everyone.

You can get detailed information on me at Miss Heidi's Facebook. You can follow me on many of my social medias to see how your generous donations are helping me.

You can also follow Miss Heidi and cheer her on. Anything helps, even  cheerleaders and that is you.
