Mom went to Sao Jose again today to take more ration to more of the dog victims. She stopped on the way to photograph the house where the dramatic rescue took place with the poor dog that fell in the water.
This dog was not a flood victim. A man lost his house and asked a friend of ours two get his two dogs and take them to the shelter. He then a few days later told Dr Renata that his brother would look after the two dogs until he could resolve his terrible situation. When Dr Renata got to the guy's brother's home she noticed that one of the two dogs here was in deep trouble and insisted on returning to the shelter with the original two flood victims and one victim of human neglect. This happens a lot to us here. This dog had been tied to a tree for God knows how long. The man said the maggots only started two days ago, but people who deal with this like Dr Renata and Mom know this is not the case.
Thispoor baby is having treatment by volunteer vets for the same reason--maggots. Mom treated Bonnie like this removing them one by one.
This type of problem does not appear in just ten days. He has been limping around the streets for a long time and ignored by all. The floods have been his salvation because now he has professional treatment and may get a better offer of a home.
This poor baby was cowering in the corner frightened of everything. I don't think humans will be very atrracted to her. Dad tried to comfort her, but she was very distressed.
