Thank goodness this poor dog was rescued! I just wanted to share as I have never seen a dog in this horrific condition. She was just rescued by a rescue in California. I am appauled at the condition she is in. Sadly surgery won't help but she will be made into a princess soon enough. Her FB page is Everything Rosie https://www.facebook.com/MalibuRosie

Quote from rescue mom:"Rosie getting some air Thursday afternoon. There are hummingbirds buzzing the bush behind her and she is curious about the noise. For those that think she isn't capable of enjoying life, trust me, she just needs time to live!!!"

This poor dog is do deformed she barely has a bottom jaw....

I looked at her facebook page.. I am just not going to watch the videos because I am very sensitive and will sob.. But is she okay mentally? I don't mean not traumatized so much as I mean is she not retarded, like mentally not developed fully?

Per her mom on 6/28/12 and I quote  "Good morning to all of Rosie's friends! I am going to answer some popular questions: 1) Will Rosie's hair grow back? We hope so. Once the demodex mange is treated, the fur should come back. Bear in mind, she has had her most of her life so we don't know how much of it will return. 2) What does Rosie weigh? She weighs 4.2 pounds and I am going to take her measurements tonight. 3) Can she/will she walk? The congenital defects that caused her snout to be so pointy and her lower jaw to be short, caused issues with her legs. She crab walks. Dr. Lupo is waiting for ortho opinion to see what if anything can be done. In the meantime, I am gently stretching her hind legs to build up strength and increase feasibility. 4) Can she eat? Oh yes she can and she does! She is averaging about 3/4 can of BG Chicken Canned food which is a very soft puree type of food. 5) What is she? Rosie is a Chihuahua. 6) Can she see/hear? Rosie can see quite well and she hears a can open in another room so I think we can say the ears work 100%. 7) Is she in pain? No she is not in pain. Her skin is irritated and delicate from the mange but she is never going to be on anything rough again and it should improve in color and texture soon. 8) Does she need a home? No, I am keeping her, she is home! 9) Do her siblings need homes? YES!!! Rosie's relatives - some are less than a week old - need foster and permanent homes. I think I've covered the more popular questions and I am doing my best to go through and answer emails and questions as quickly as possible! Thank you all!!!!"

Here is the status update from Rosie's wonderful friend Dr. Lupo on 6/27/28.
Rosie Medical Update: Rosie's blood work came back today. Good news -- results were encouraging. There were no signs of congenital abnormalities or abnormal internal organ function. We're rooting for this little gal!

There are new photos of her too on her web site and she is looking great!   frolic

Bless her heart, she looks like an anteater.  She will have such a happy life now.  What an interesting little critter.  If she were here she would be mine! hug
