URGENT Medical Treatment for Ernie

  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Name: Ernie
  • Color: White
  • Size: Extra Small
  • Sex: Male
  • Age: Baby

He's 110% adorable, but Ernie needs our help.

Ernie is just a puppy, and one of several dogs that DogRRR took in as part of a recent hoarding case. Over 30 dogs were "surrendered" when the owner was presented with potential charges, and while the investigation continues, all the animals are getting care, whether they are with our rescue, or other organizations.

Ernie is by far in the worst shape! Unfortunately, he came to us very anemic and weak, and had to undergo an emergency plasma transfusion to save him. He remains at the ER and we would consider his condition, guarded. We also suspect he may have a form of hydrocephalus, which is excess fluid on the brain. He will undergo some additional testing to hopefully identify what is going on.

When awake, Ernie is a total love bug and is as sweet as can be. Unfortunately, our ER bills continue to rise. To help, please consider a donation.... thank you!
