While the vet was shocked by Blue’s condition, she was also hopeful that with the right care, he would eventually transform into a happy, healthy dog. She gave Peskey a few different medications to give to Blue, including a special shampoo to wash him with. Peskey then took him home, and began the process of showing the sick, scared pup that he was finally loved.
“We have a pile of shop rags in the barn and he laid on them for three days,” Peskey said. “He’d get up to go potty and then straight back to the pile of rags. By day five he was moving around more.”
