A hairless dog’s makeover

Posted on

We are happy to announce that Fluffy is fully recovered. The aging stray dog arrived in our shelter in February, suffering from an advanced stage of mange. Fluffy had become as bald as a coot and was badly malnourished.

Skin diseases such as these are rampant among Nepalese dogs. It takes a lot of patience to cure them. Slowly but surely Fluffy’s hair grew back, and she became less grumpy. Fluffy now sports a thick coat of beige hair and feels at home with the other three permanent residents at the Chobar Animal Sanctuary, Nana, Sumi and Lassie.
