Sweetpea, a 9 yr old silver senior, came to BRAF as an unwanted neglect and abuse case. The people who brought her to the shelter requesting she be euthanized. She was emaciated at only 44 pounds. She had a suspected stab wound to the chest, infected ears and a large ulcerated mammary tumor. Her nails were so long she couldn’t walk right. Sweetpea was evaluated at the shelter and due to her sweet disposition and her seemingly will to live, the shelter took her to an emergency vet for wound care and contacted Boxer Rescue Angels of Florida who stepped in to help her.
Sweetpea was pulled in to rescue on May 4 and loving foster homes and angels took care of her around the clock. She finally gained a few pounds with the help of home-cooked chicken and veggies and eventually was strong enough for surgery to remove the tumor. Sweetpea has been holding her own and has been fighting to get better. Unfortunately, her tumor biopsy came back as cancer. Her next step is to see the cancer specialist to see how advanced her disease has progressed.
This precious girl is a jewel and endears herself to everyone she meets. Though Sweetpea has had a rough couple of weeks, she is happy and loving being loved on.
