Marshfield, MA dog needs 6 months qu
GSRNE recently received this call and unfortunately we don't have a way to help her. It is not your usual situation, to be sure, but I said I'd post it and see if anyone has the right circumstances to help this girl.
They still do not know much about this poor dog and under the circumstances, the town and the laws as well as funding is giving this girl a deadline to be PTS immediately. The dog is a white female GSD, they do not know her age.
A man brought her in on the 14h of October saying that he is homeless and the dog was up in Maine with his ex-wife and was tied outside. She was OBVIOUSLY bit by something and has a wound of an unknown origin. The dog has not been to the vet and is not UTD on rabies.
He was under the impression that the ACO could help him in finding her a home and vet care. Because of the laws, she had to immediately put this dog in isolation and due to funding from the town, only has to hold the dog for 10 days (though she's held on to the dog longer hoping it can be helped). She can't even get close to the dog right now as they still do not know if she has been exposed to rabies.
The dog "seems" to be very sweet, but they truly know nothing about her. They were putting the word out to rescues but realize that there is a huge exposure here and she can't just foster this dog out, as they dog would have to be put in 6 month isolation.
Sad situation that could have easily been avoided. Someone would have to have a kennel where the dog could be isolated, and also have their own rabies shot just in case.
If you can help, please let me know asap.
