The owner said Princess was a 6 month old female Chihuahua that probably had a brain tumor but he couldn’t afford any veterinary fees. Most of this statement is untrue. Princess is a 5-6 year old Chihuahua and was in a depressed state when she arrived. Before going home with a Society staffer to monitor the lass for the night, she was given some fluids….and that is what saved her.
During the night, she became ill and disoriented and was brought to Garden State Veterinary Specialists in Tinton Falls where they monitored her for the weekend. Princess was completely “dried out” – no water or food was in her system and this caused her body to start shutting down. As a result of poor, neglected living conditions for a prolonged period of time, it has affected her liver values.
At the present time, she may have limited vision. She will be supervised and her liver values monitored. Sadly, this dog has experienced a miserably neglectful abusive existence. During the short time she has been in our care, she has blossomed to become much more alert and active. File TF-52853-F (Tinton Falls).
