Neapolitan Mastiff (short coat) : : Female : : Young : : Large
Another rescue reached out to us, and asked if we could help with a 3 year old female Neo who was living in a backyard, with 2 intact males, a Mastiff and a Pittie. We didn't know anything else about her, but we knew she needed our help, so we committed to her. Luna's owner surrendered her, and went directly into foster. She was in heat, so we knew she may have very recently gotten pregnant, and we scheduled her spay surgery right away.
When Luna went to the Vet last week she tested HWt and positive for hookworms. But after a second and different HW test was performed she is currently HW negative. Her ears were severely infected, and needed to be flushed while she was under anesthesia for her spay. All of the above are currently being treated.
Luna's foster said that she was absolutely filthy when she arrived, and she doesn't understand what toys and treats are, but she is now starting to learn. She also believes that Luna was abused, but said that she is very sweet, and slowly coming out of her shell. We will post more updates as she progresses.
