I found a puppy 2 1/2 weeks ago. I filled out a found dog form at the animal shelter, put us found dog signs, and placed an ad on Craigslist. No one ever came forward to claim her. I am not surprised as she had health issues when I found her and now I am convinced she was dumped. I believe the dog is a purebred (though poorly bred) Great Dane. Pics taken her the day after I found her. The night I found her, she had fleas and ticks, tar stuck in her coat, a gash on her forehead and dog bite wounds on her face, and a major case of puppy pyoderma on her stomach, groin, and insides of her rear legs. I bathed her, cleaned her wounds, and started her on Keflex and Ecchinasea/Goldenseal. The thinning hair on her head was not apparent until a day or so later when I got the wounds really clean. Demodectic mange. Great. Just great. I had no money to take her to the vet so I looked up home remedies. I found this website and decided to try the mayonnaise and apple cider vinegar remedy found halfway down on the second page. Cure Demodectic and Sarcoptic Mange. Believe it or not, it is actually working. The pyoderma is gone now and the puppy is in apparent good health except for the mange. Since I couldn't find her owner, I placed an ad on Craigslist and another on Ebay classifieds to try to find her a home. I got several inquiries (mostly from idiots) but the few promising homes declined taking her when I told them about the mange. I started contacting Great Dane rescue groups and all-breed rescue groups. Not one of the 6 GD rescue people have responded and the 2 all-breed groups I contacted didn't have room to take her. I do not know what to do. I already have 9 dogs (4 or whom I am looking for homes for) and most of them HATE this puppy. Seriously, 3 of them would quickly eviscerate her if they got hold of her.) The GD puppy's crate takes up my entire kitchen and I can't even reach the stove or sink without turning sideways to squeeze past it. I am in critical shape financially and I have had to borrow money just to buy dog food. (Purina Dog Chow is all I can afford.) This puppy is gaining almost a pound a day and she eats a lot. She needs to go to the vet and I can't do that. Her presence in my home has been a major problem and I just can't handle this any longer. The animal shelter is full and I am sure that she would be put down right away due to the mange. If the puppy had temperament or behavior issues I might be able to handle her being put down but she doesn't. She is extremely clean in a crate and waits patiently for me to walk her several times a day. I can turn her loose in a safe area and she does not go far. Her recall is amazing. She is super friendly and adores kids, the smaller the better. People are afraid to touch her because of the mange though. This puppy has tremendous potential to make someone a fabulous pet. I can't keep borrowing money to feed her but I don't want her killed either? What would you do if you were in my situation?
