Egyptian Rescue Dog

By David G. Wolf, NGAP Director
Posted:June 23, 2017

When Kate was brought to us at Dutton Road Veterinary Clinic by Melissa Caldwell we had known that she was an extraordinary rescue case. She had been brought from the streets of Egypt thanks to the Animal Protection Foundation. It was decided that the surgery we would do would not be free but substantially discounted. Looking at her nipples, it was clear this poor girl, who was supposed to be 5 years old, was used by every new puppy in Egypt to suckle.

When presented she was unable to see. Photographs show her eyes after removal which do not look eyes because of the of scar tissue. While she was on the table she was also spayed. The photograph that was taken of her post op, she appeared very comfortable.

Removed Eyes

Although she will not have the benefit of sight which she did not have when presented, going forward she will no longer be in discomfort. Anyone reading this, keep in mind that blind dogs function very well, they learn their surroundings so they will not bump into things. All of their of their senses are amplified. To the best of my knowledge at the time of this writing we believe she is available for adoption; anyone interested can contact this office.
