Bailey Update: The Pup That Steemit Saved

19 days ago
Little Bailey not only made it through the night last night despite some concerns about his heavy parasite load combined with the stress of being abandoned, but woke this morning ready to take on the world! He's eating great, drinking plenty, and starting to complain about quarantine. Perfect! All signs of a healthy, normal pup.

Bailey looks to be about four months old. He's a Great Pyrenees mix, complete with double dew claws on his back legs. He is super-friendly and very well-mannered.

Thanks to @lexiconal and @nikez452, a fundraising effort has already ensured his vetting on Friday can be covered. He has an appointment with a veterinarian I consider to be the best in the area. He should be able to receive treatment for the mange mites as well as his initial core vaccines. @fundraisers has also adopted his cause and will be helping raise money not only for Friday's visit, but follow-up treatments as well. Bailey will need at least two in a series of core vaccines, at least two ivermectin injections to treat the mites, topical parasite control, internal parasite control, a microchip and sterilization before making the long trek north to the forever home we'll find for him in New England. He's too young for a heartworm test, but we'll make sure he gets everything that he needs before adoption.

Upvotes cost you nothing. Bailey's cause is worthy of a click. Please resteem as well so he can get as much help as possible.

Watch Bailey enjoy his evening dinner!

Great job @lexiconical and @nikez452. This is why I love Steemit.

·

Thank you, Gmuxx.

I've resteemed this post as well. She'll see it tonight on a work break.

·

↑↑↑ That, right there.

Aren't these folks just great? So much love for this community. :-)

Good jod. I love the dogs. Bayley is beautiful. I follow you.

this world could use more people like you. thanks for bringing awareness to such a worthy cause. Up voted and followed.

·

I appreciate that very much. :-)

Awwwwww baby! He's going to get big, isn't he? Love his little face!

·

Probably around 80-100lbs or so, yeah.

What lexiconical said. LOL

I'm so glad Bailey is doing well. Hope someone adopts him soon. You are doing great work.

·

Thank you! I feel pretty sure that we can place him quickly in New England once he is healthy. :-)

This is fantastic. Go Bailey!

Great Work! He looks like an amazing little guy!

·

Thank you! Yes, I think he's a very special dog.

With everything you mentioned in the first post, I had my concerns of whether Bailey would make it or not. De-worming is stressful enough without all the other issues. Glad that he's on the mend and that people are responding to the need! Cheers!

·

I have to admit I had some concerns myself last night. Especially when he was so lethargic and more interested in sleeping than eating. I probably would be too though, if I had a belly full of worms. He was a new man this morning. :-)

I have always been an animal fanatic and this makes me cry tears of joy - thank you for your efforts

Good news that @fundraisers picked this up. yah!

Happy to hear Bailey is doing well!

·

I'm quite relieved about it myself. :-)

Yay Bailey! Yay Steemit! Yay everyone who helped by donating, sharing, upvoting, and resteeming! Yay Rhonda for taking Bailey on.

Is his tail broken or is that a Pyr thing? It looks like he controls a little section then the rest hangs limp.

·

It does look like it's broken, sadly. Poor baby.

glad to see Bailey is doing well. I've hit what i vould with upvotes for you. feels good to be able to use my delegation for good!

Bailey sounds a lot like where Shadow wad when we toom him in. We went over $1000 in vet bills once all was said and done.

sending a little personal donation to your wallet as well. i know you will find a use for it!!

I don't know if you've been in the workshop enough to know she is currently without computer. I know she will have copious thanks when she gets that far, but is having difficulty keeping up with everything with only her cell phone. So if she doesn't respond quickly, it is for technical reasons, not because she isn't grateful. Thank you!

I'm glad that steemit can help and I'm very glad that the puppy has been saved :) Always nice to find alternative ways that can help in saving a life.

Rhonda, what's the latest on Bailey?

·

He saw the vet Friday, and came home on a bunch of meds. He's doing much better! All systems normal, and his skin is clearing up. Six more days in quarantine, and he can come out to play. :-)
