LIMBO SPECIALS

Can't adopt or foster but want to contribute?  We take in many pups that may not be immediately adoptable...if ever for a variety of reasons; some have constant medical needs or are going through heartworm treatment; some are in the final stages of illness or are just too old too be moved around; some have special emotional needs.  These dogs continue to be sponsored by Limbo and people like you for the rest of their time with us. 

  

Breed: Chihuahua

Size: 6 lbs

Age: 10 years

Rescue: Early 2016

Bambi is a forever foster, meaning Limbo will cover the cost of her care for the rest of her life.  When she came to us, it was discovered she had tumors on all her breasts due to over breeding. After enduring two separate surgeries, a cancerous throat tumor was found. She doesn't seem to notice and we are just fine with that.  Recently she presented with a painful tumor on her belly.  The doc agreed to remove it and removed some of the lumps in her neck.  She has one more tumor to be removed and hopefully she will be back to her lovely self. 

Please consider donating to her care so we can continue to save more pups like her.



Sierra

Breed: Chihuahua

Size: 6-8lbs

Age: 10 years

Rescue: June 24, 2017

Sierra's story is a result of a broken family.  💔Although the family had insurance for this little girl they refused any treatment offered.  What started as a minor yeast infection turned into something much worse resulting in massive hair loss.  What a crime for such a pretty coat. 😢  She was also diagnosed with a mammary tumor a few years ago which, we finally had removed!  This little girl is on the road to recovery and we could use your help to keep her on the right road. 🛣️





Linus

Breed: Chihuahua/Terrier

Size: 8 lbs

Age: 5 years

Rescue: May 10, 2017

Poor little Linus came to us heavy with HW+.  He has been going through treatment and it was touch and go for a while.  Heartworm treatment can be very tough on their little bodies, is expensive to treat and it could have all been prevented with a monthly pill.  We are hoping that he will soon be ready for his own home.

What is heartworm?

Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease. It is caused by foot-long worms (heartworms) that live in the heart, lungs and associated blood vessels of affected pets, causing severe lung disease, heart failure and damage to other organs in the body. 


How does a dog get heartworm?

A: Only by the bite of an infected mosquito. There's no other way dogs get heartworms!  It takes about seven months, once a dog is bitten by an infected mosquito, for the larvae to mature into adult heartworms.  They then lodge in the heart, lungs, and surrounding blood vessels and begin reproducing.
