Piggy Pie is a velvet hippo, piglet, trex, alligator, pittie girl that joined our medical foster care program this summer! She is about 6 years old and rescued as a ‘stray’ from the city shelter. This snorting (and snoring wonder) came to us with skin infections ravaging every part of her. You touch her, hair (where there was hair) would fall out. Her skin was scaly, peeling, red, hot, and painful. Her paws were covered, top and bottom, with painful overfilled blisters. This impaired her ability to walk, since any surface was painful. Her ears were filled with fluid, neck inflamed, and still lactating. Someone used Piggy Pie as a breeding machine, took her puppies, and left her out in the streets. Her teets were sore, red, hot, and swollen. The one thing that was unharmed, her spirit. Piggy Pie LOVES to love!
Currently, she is in medical foster care where she receives round the clock care for her medical conditions. Twice a day, Piggy takes several pills and has her ears cleaned. Every other day, Piggy Pie gets a medicated bath/massage. Her routine is complete with lots of naps, love, snoring, and cuddles with her foster siblings.
Piggy Pie requires regular check ins to monitor her progress and rest. She is slowly improving. While in our foster home, Piggy Pie is also enjoying training to work through her trauma and learn basic obedience!
