HELP ME GET SEEN & ADOPTED!
10/3/2017 It is with deep sadness and a heavy heart to announce that our beloved Brooklyn has crossed the rainbow bridge. The joy that this happy hippo brought her amazing foster parents, @doggirl110 and @jombie626, is immeasurable. Brooklyn came to @newyorkbullycrew for a chance at a full life. Her parents gave her the very best of themselves and then some more. She came to NY with hopes of being healed but what really happened was that Brooklyn healed us. Her unconditional love that she gave was her secret weapon. She brought joy to everyone she met. She let everyone know that tomorrow brings hope and joy. We will miss your beautiful face, Brooklyn. May you run like a puppy with the angels. Always in our hearts.
On Monday, Miss Brooklyn, or Babs for short, will be receiving her first heart worm treatment. She has to be fully recovered from heartworm before she can undergo ear surgery. Her rockstar foster mom, @doggirl110, is teaching Babs hand signals for commands to get her ready for her much needed surgery on her ear canals. You see, because of the inhumane DIY ear cropping while in Puerto Rico, Brooklyn’s ears are so badly damaged buy chronic ear infections and sun damage that both of her ear canals have to be removed. As of right now, she can hardly hear. The surgery will make her more comfortable. Despite Brooklyn’s aches, she is the happiest hippo around and we are blessed to have be given the chance to make her better.
Our baby hippo is such a happy girl but she has multiple serious conditions that are dire! Mammory tumors and possible squamous carcinoma in her ears! Multiple tick diseases and she has been diagnosed with heartworm that cannot be treated until another infection is cleared up first. And operating on her tumors can’t happen until she his treated and cleared from heartworm.
And she still is so happy! She is one of the sweetest, happiest, petite pittie girl ever! But she has a long list of serious health concerns due to the years of abuse, neglect and overbreeding before she was rescued by her foster family in Puerto Rico. Her serious chronic ear condition is probably because of the barbaric DIY ear crop, she has growths all over her body and a lame front leg.
Brooklyn’s ROCKSTAR FOSTERS- @doggirl110 @jombie626, Jay and Jenn will make sure that Brooklyn will be comfortable and that her medical treatment protocol is followed to the letter!
She will only know love, dedication, compassion and pampering from this day forward.
