By now, everyone in the French Bulldog world has heard the story of poor little Churchill, the French Bulldog with the horrific skin condition who was taken in by FBRN. Churchill inspired an outpouring of generous donations from readers who were heartsick at the appalling condition he was in. Unfortunately, FBRN had to make the wrenching decision to let Churchill go, when Veterinary care was unable to stop the advancement of his cancer.
Now, there’s another sad little Frenchie who needs your help – and she’s with a rescue without the deep pockets and well organized financial backing of FBRN.
Meet Cosette –
Cosette is being fostered by French Connection Rescue. Here is her story:
Cosette was found wandering the streets and a family tried to take care of her since November. The Dad lost his job so now they cannot take care of her and turned her over to The Connection Rescue, AKA us!
She is clearly a puppymill breeder and is probably almost the worst case Frenchie her foster mom has ever seen. She is emaciated, bare skinned, eye and ear infections (a clubbed ear too), heart murmur, fluid in the lungs etc. Her nipples hang so far down and look like balls on a string. She has no front teeth and is about 7 years old.
Although she has had a rough life, she has the personality of gold! A real sweetie pie. 🙂 She is a tiny thing weighing in at 13.9 lbs right now and is very petite.
She is going to need all the help she can get! My vet who opened just for me to bring her in said he believes we can get her better. I hope he is right.
Cosette needs your help. Here’s what you can do:
- Donate to her care – as much or as little as you can afford
- Blog about Cosette – help spread the word, and get her the readers she needs to help FCR raise the funds needed to care for her
- Post about Cosette to your newsgroups and forums
Let’s all help show Cosette that she is as cared for as Churchill was, and the one poor little used up puppy mill dog can still have a shot at a happy life.
