ディーさんより配信
ベイエリアキースホンドレスキューのヴォランティア達がサンクスギヴィングの数日前にパピーミルからキースホンド達を救出し、そのまま動物病院へ直行。毛は絡まりまくり、体は排泄物などで汚れており物凄い悪臭だったそうです。これはキースホンドリストには配信されておりませんでしたが、現在は無事に一時預かり宅にて必要な治療を受けているそうです。
名前すらなかった子達ですが、Butternut, Myles, Faithという名前になったそうです。

Butternutちゃんは一番臆病さんだったようで、病院の診察室では逃げまくり、イスやテーブルの下に逃げ込んでいたりしていたそうですが、頑張って診察を受けることが出来たそうです。毛はやはり絡まり、排泄物やゴミなどが付いていた状態で、両耳は酷く感染、放置しておけば腎不全を起こす状態までになっていた尿路感染にかかっており、歯肉は酷く膿んだ状態で痛々しい状況だったそうです。

テニスボールサイズの腫瘍が乳腺に確認されています。(左の写真、ちょうど後ろ足の前あたり)犬の場合、乳腺腫瘍の半分が悪性と言われているようで、大きくなればなるほど他の臓器にも転移する危険性があるそうです。
Butternutちゃんはサンクスギヴィングの週末にかけて乳腺腫瘍摘出手術と、ホルモンを刺激する子宮を摘出したようです。またオペの最中には子宮にも新たな腫瘍が確認されたようです。

化膿していた歯は抜歯・・病理解剖の結果は腫瘍は全て良性とのことで一安心・・
現況:一時預かりのボランティアさんが病院に再診のため行ったそうです。両耳の感染は落ち着いているとのこですが、左耳に腫瘍があり、耳道の60%を塞いでいるとの診断。
予定では麻酔下にて切除、切除不可能であれば生検に回し方法を考えるようです。

Myles君
推定10歳から11歳、この子が暮らしていたのは鶏小屋(写真)獣医さんに診察してもらったことも外飼いにも関わらず狂犬病予防注射の経験もゼロ
毛は絡まり、排泄物とゴミで汚れていた状態ですが、写真はその毛玉や排泄物をカットした後に撮影されたものだとか・・
Butternutちゃん同様、両耳は感染、尿路感染あり、回虫だらけ・・

Myles_Christmas1.jpg

酷い環境にいたにも関わらず意外にもすんなり家庭環境にはなじめているようです。現在はスモーキー君というキースとレスキューされた猫ちゃん達と暮らしているようです。サンクスギヴィングの日にはキッチンパトロールもスモーキー君と遂行。お散歩ではみんなが撫でてくれると信じて疑わず・・

オペラのレッスンをしている女性なのだそうですが、ソプラノだろうがテノールだろうが声にびびりもしないでレッスン中も部屋のドアの外でちゃんと待っている、お散歩の後はおやつということも理解してきたようで、お散歩から戻るとキッチンへ直行、ゴミ収集車にも怯えることもないようです。

最後に・・

Faith2.jpg

Faith3.jpgFaith4.jpg

Faithちゃん
今回のレスキューで一番年齢が若く、また一番大胆な性格

パピーミル内ではMyles君と鶏小屋にいたようです。毛の状態は2匹と同様、また両耳に感染症と尿路感染あり。最悪なことにフィラリア感染が確認されています。フィラリア感染が確認されている状態なので、通常の予防薬を使用すれば危険が伴います。しばらくの間は危険な合併症を防ぐべく安静にしていなければならないようです。

他のキース達とも仲良く出来ているようです。でも、誰かが撫でてもらっていると間を押しのけて順番をまっているのだとか・・

首輪を付けたことがない犬達は首輪イコール怖いというイメージがあるようですが、首輪を見せてもあまり反応はしないようです、ただ首輪を装着しても怖がると言うこともないようです。クレートも気にいった様子で、お昼寝をしたい時には自らそこで寝るそうです。1月上旬からはフィラリア感染治療に入れるようです。

We have more success stories to come. However, don't think that this is the end of puppymill misery. BARK in California rescued several puppymillsurvivors whose needs are ongoing. If you'd like to contribute specifically for the California PM Kees, just make that notation on your check or in your Paypal message.

When we all worked together, we accomplished a great deal for the South Carolina Kees, so let's do the same for these California mill survivors.

Could we all resolve in 2011 to do everything we can to discourage "ordinary" people from purchasing from pet stores or high volume breeders? None of us can do everything, but we each can do something. If we forego a large coffee one day each month, remember, that will provide heartworm preventive for a month for a needy Keeshond! That's a huge big deal, folks,
trust me!

Happy New Year, everyone. Let's make 2011 a banner year for Kees who need our help.

Butternut1.jpg

Butternut2.jpg
Butternut is the shyest one. On the way into the vet's office, she panicked and struggled to get away. In the exam room, she tried to hide under the table and chairs. However, in spite of her fear, sweet Butternut allowed the doctor to examine her without a struggle.

Her coat was thickly matted and full of feces and debris. She had raging infections in both ears, a severe urinary tract infection (which can cause irreversible kidney failure), and terrible dental disease with painful abscessed teeth.

She also had multiple mammary tumors, including one the size of a tennis ball (it's visible in the photo on the left, just in front of her hind legs.) In dogs, half of mammary tumors are malignant, and the larger they are, the greater the risk that they've spread to other parts of the body. Butternut had surgery over Thanksgiving weekend to remove the tumors and to spay her to get rid of the hormones that stimulate the growth of canine mammary tumors. During the surgery, the vet found another tumor on her uterus. While she was under anesthesia, the vet also extracted the abscessed teeth. Afterwards, we held our breath, waiting for the pathology report. The news was a Thanksgiving miracle -- all of the tumors were benign!

Sweet, gentle Butternut is in a comfortable foster home now. Her foster dad writes:

Butternut follows me around, staying at my feet when I am at my desk. She responds to her name, and she sleeps quietly at night now. She walks well on the leash, though she does not yet sniff around as the other dogs do. And in the kitchen she takes over my dog's bed when she can.

The most extraordinary thing is her delight in and attachment to a woman who has been visiting with us. When she comes into the house, Butternut goes running at the sound of her tread on the stairs. She almost spins, she jumps up and wags her tail furiously. When the woman leaves, Butternut sits at the gate at the top of the stairs and whimpers, even howls or barks, until I call her away.

We went for a walk on the beach and that went well also... She is going to be absolutely fine.

UPDATE: Butternut's foster mom took her to the vet for a recheck. The good news is that her ear infections have cleared up and the vet can now see into her ear canals. The bad news is, the vet discovered a tumor in her left ear that's obstructing at least 60% of the ear canal. She'll need anesthesia again to remove it (if possible) or take a biopsy (if the vet isn't able to remove it.) We're praying for good news again...

Myles1.jpg

Myles3.jpgcoop.jpg

At 10 or 11 years old, Myles was living in a chicken coop. (See the photo above.) He had never been seen by a veterinarian, not even for a rabies vaccination.

Like Butternut, Myles' filthy, matted coat was full of fleas, feces and debris. The photos above were taken after the vet staff clipped the feces out of his coat. Also like Butternut, he had severe, painful infections in both ears and a urinary tract infection. He was infested with roundworms.

For a neglected dog who spent years living in a chicken coop, Myles has taken astonishingly well to city life. He has a Keesie foster brother named Smokey, several rescued kitties, and a foster mom and dad who are opera singers. He spent Thanksgiving on kitchen patrol with Smokey! His foster mom writes,

Myles and Smokey are doing well together and the new kitty has also gotten over her fears, at least until there is barking. Myles knows the treat-after-the-walk routine and comes straight into the kitchen. Today I had 3 voice students and he greeted them all and then slept on the floor outside my teaching room with Smokey during the lessons. He is undaunted by tenors or sopranos.

He has completely enchanted all my voice students and the guests we had in for Thanksgiving. He expects all the neighbors and passersby to pet him when we're on walks, and seems fascinated by open car doors. No skittishness at all about strangers or loud noises - even the trash trucks don't faze him. A truly remarkable little guy.

Here's Myles enjoying Christmas in his foster home!

Faith2.jpg

Faith3.jpgFaith4.jpg

Sweet Faith is the youngest and most confident of the three. She was living in the chicken coop with Myles.

Like Butternut and Myles, Faith's filthy, matted coat was full of fleas, feces and debris, she had severe, painful infections in both ears, and a urinary tract infection.

She also had heartworms... a life-threatening condition that would have been easily prevented with a once-a-month dose of heartworm preventative. To save Faith's life, she needs heartworm treatment, which is very risky. The medication used to kill the heartworms is a toxic arsenic derivative. As the worms die, they can break apart and cause embolisms that can kill her. She must be kept very quiet for several weeks to avoid life-threatening complications.

Faith is currently in a safe, comfortable foster home. We're letting her settle in and get to know her foster family and the other dogs, so she'll stay calm and quiet during her heartworm treatment. In the meantime, we're pre-treating her with medications that reduce the risk of complications and prevent her from being contagious to other dogs.

Faith's foster mom says she's a sweetheart! She responds to her name now, and her tail is always wagging. She's getting along great with the other dogs in her foster home - if the other dogs are being petted, she pushes her way into the group and waits for her turn! She's still not crazy about the leash (leashes can be scary for dogs who aren't used to them), but once it's on, she's goes along willingly. She likes her crate, and goes into it on her own when she wants to take a nap. She should be ready to start her heartworm treatment early in the New Year.

Here's Faith, enjoying being a house dog in her comfortable foster home!
