today my kids found a puppy (maybe 6 weeks old) she looks like a husky/german shepard mix.she was laying under a car and at first she looked dead.well my kids brought her home and we checked her out .she was dehydrated and a little lethargic ,not to mention her gums are pale ,probably from anemia because she was covered in fleas and ticks.we gave her a flea/tick bath (the kind that's safe for young puppies) and some food and water and then had to cut away all the matting in her hair which had some kind of gunk mixed in it.she's doing much better now and has perked up alot but tomorrow we'll be taking her to a vet for shots and bloodwork.she's so cute and the kids are now calling her tinkerbell.she's only about 2 pounds if that.seems people around here just don't care about their animals

Could also be a puppy that was born from a stray that got hit or something happened to her....don't know for sure that it was owned by anyone.

Very glad he/she is doing better, and even more glad you are willing to take him/her to a vet. Are you guys going to keep s/he?

That is so horrible! You should call the ASPCA, they might take care of it for you until it gets bigger and healthier.

How sad for that little puppy. Thank goodness your kids found her and brought her home. I'll be thinking lots off good thoughts for Tinkerbell. Please keep us posted on her.

well she has a vet appointment today and i'm pretty nervous.we wormed her and she had roundworms,now we have to do it every two weeks until the vet says to stop.i had never seen worms before.i have dewormed puppies before but nothing ever came of it so to see that coming out of her horrified and shocked me.today i think she's getting a parvo shot.i'll update when we get back.

How's the puppy? Is there a name yet?
I am so happy to hear you are giving her a forever home.

here's the update:she's great .she's 4.9 pounds and the vet agrees that she probably is husky/german shepard mix.he said the wormer i gave her was fine but to do it again in a week instead of 2 weeks.if i would've given her the pill form he would've redone it because he says the pill is not effective.she got her 1st puppy shot which she wasn't happy with of course and she has to go back in 3 weeks for another shot.the kids named her tinkerbell "tink' for short.
