This is Hildie. She was found all alone, starving and nearly bald by a kind hearted human who has surrendered her to our shelter. We don't know whether she got lost or was abandoned, but has obviously been on her own for a while. The only fur she still has are the tufts around her face. She is a Maltese, about 3 years old and weighs a scant 12 pounds. Despite her trauma, she is loving and so anxious to please and find a new home.
Her skin condition is likely a result of exposure and malnutrition, so she is on a "spa" care regiment of healthy eating and soothing baths and ointments to help her heal and gain her health back. She may have a thyroid condition, yet to be confirmed. Vet will run further tests once she stabilizes (physically and emotionally) with a little TLC.
Hildie could sure use a Guardian Angel or two and a foster home while she is healing if anyone could help with her care.
