Update on 3/29/2013: A picture is worth a thousand words! You can see pretty Adele is healing nicely and has a whole new look.
She is so grateful for your support and the Guardian Angels who helped give her a second chance.

Adele is a french bulldog mix that was turned in to Dallas Animal Services and they asked for a rescue group to help her. This 3 year old weighs 39.8 pounds, a short and curvy kind of gal!
She was attacked by another dog -- as well as maced (by someone trying to break up the fight?)! She has a large laceration on her left axilla which was cleaned and sutured with a drain tube installed. She also has an injury to the carilage in her right ear. It appears that the ear had been pulled away from the head, causing cartilage damage, which will most likely require surgery to repair. It is seriously infected, so this is the focus of her initial care.
Adele is a really sweet girl, submissive and adorable! She just needs some help to get through all of this. She is ready to get healed and put the past behind her!
She is resting comfortably, but would love a Guardian Angel or two so she can have all the best care available.
Update on 3/29/2013: Sweet Elton is such a brave and patient little guy. He had his leg set, with the hope it would heal. Today's xrays show it is not healing, so the vet has reset it and we wait another two weeks to see what will be.
Thanks to everyone for supporting this brave little guy!!!

This is Elton. This sweet little guy was turned in to animal services after he was attacked by a larger dog and suffered serious bite wounds to his abdomen and his legs. We answered their appeal for rescue and have taken this 8 month old pup into our care.
Elton visited the vet yesterday and xrays are showing his body did not sustain the worst of the damage. His leg is broken in three places, possibly impossible to repair. A second opinion will determine treatment.
Meanwhile he is resting comfortably with our Shelter Director.
Elton (so named because of his hairdo!) could sure use a Guardian Angel. Will you help?
