Lightweight, December 2002
Story written by: Applicant, Kris Hall
Lightweight's rescuers found her hiding in the hay room of their barn one chilly night in November. She was severely emaciated and had the worst case of mange you could imagine - her whole body was covered in bloody sores and her poor sweet eyes just begged for some help. Lightweight went to the vet, where she was diagnosed with a severe case of demodectic mange and a secondary skin infection. Thankfully, no heartworms!! Treatment (and lots of good food) started immediately for this 9 month old girl, and her rescuers began the search for her forever home, knowing they couldn't keep her themselves.
Help was closer than they thought, and a friend named Lynn was able to take Lightweight into her loving care and continue her treatments. Lynn has two other dogs, a couple of horses, and a cat, so Lightweight has some good friends to recuperate with.
