Hi, I’m Lilo
Hi, I’m Lilo and I was rescued from the village of Likotrafo in May 2020.
As you can see, I’m in a very poorly condition and have advanced mange and anaemia.
I was very weak when I was found and malnourished, so I have quite a long way to go to get healthy and put on weight.
The humans that take care of me say they think I was born in 2018 but because I am very nervous and scared, I won’t let them examine my teeth to assess my age more accurately.
Maybe when I am feeling better I will let them have a look.
The volunteers here at DASH tell me that I am ok and in time I will learn to trust them, but for now they give me my space and just sit with me for a little while every day.
I am taking lots of medication and I need special food to help me put on weight.
My immune system is compromised by my condition and the stress of my new surroundings.
I hope that when my mange has gone completely, I can hang out with some of the other dogs here at DASH.
I’m not allowed right now, whilst I am contagious.
Being with other dogs might teach me that it’s okay to trust these new humans in my life.
I am on a long road to recovery but with the help of the Ivermectin medication, mange shampoo baths, topical creams and diet in time I should heal.
The vet told me that when I am better my fur will grow back and I will be a very pretty girl indeed.
I am anaemic at the moment so I need treatment for that too and then hopefully once I am in a stable condition I can be tested for Mediterranean diseases.
Fingers crossed, if I test negative, I might even be able to be put up for adoption one day, but it’s a long way off.
First, I need to concentrate on getting my health stabilised and then we can work on my socialisation with humans.
