Piglet is currently in foster in Liverpool with the vet who kindly rescued her. This is Piglet’s story from the vet who saved her. “A client recently brought in her gorgeous Staffordshire Bull Terrier which had a nasty skin condition that she sadly couldn’t afford to treat. She had mites which had got completely out of control, so her skin had become badly infected with bacteria and yeast. Piglet was signed over to be put t o sleep but as she is the most sweet natured, loving dog I offered to take her. I would love to keep her but sadly can’t so I’m looking to find her a long term foster family or better still a Furever home.
Piglet is approx 3-4 years old and is spayed, microchipped and fully vaccinated. She is very well behaved in the house, toilet trained, quiet, can be left on her own for short periods and is great in the car. She has lived with other dogs before so may be able to live with them again. She’s a typical Staffordshire Bull Terrier – very playful, excitable and loving, and she absolutely adores people! She’s a little bit boisterous but I’m sure she could live with older, dog-savvy children but best to avoid teeny toddlers in case she were to knock them over by accident – but she is such a sweetie! She needs to carry on her course of antibiotics for another few weeks and have medicated baths twice a week. I really hope this doesn’t put off any potential families as her skin problem is NOT contagious to people or other animals and she is expected to make a full recovery. I am even happy to continue paying for her veterinary treatment until her skin is better if necessary.
Piglet has no other health problems other than her skin condition which is as a result of the negligence and is NOT something that will be ongoing. Her fur is expected to completely grow back and it already is starting to in some areas. Long term, she will just need regular anti-mite medication such as Advocate spot on treatment once a month (most dogs have this anyway to prevent fleas) – there will be no other requirements.
I think she would be best in an active home, maybe with older children, who will take her on nice walks, and then can cuddle up on the couch together as she just loves being with people. As you can see from the photos, she still has a long way to go but her skin is much less red and sore and her fur is starting to grow back after just two weeks of treatment”
Please can you offer this very special girl a very special home where she will be loved and cared for properly, FUREVER?
