Pico, aka Kiowa Classmate, is one of 9 greyhounds GALT received from a Fort Worth Animal Control cruelty case. Most of Pico's fur is coming out in clumps, plus she has many scabs. Just like the other rescued dogs, she is positive to babesia as well as ehrlichia at extremely high titers and has a huge load of intestinal parasites. She is being treated for all.
Pico is a 3-year-old brindle female born June 17, 2007. Her sire is Kiowa Sweet Trey, and her dam is Kay Quin Quantas. There are 10 races to her credit on Greyhound-Data.com, starting December 11, 2008, at Flager in Miami, FL, and ending there August 16, 2009. With all she has been through, this is one happy girl - her tail is always going! Pico is a voracious eater, so hopefully she'll put on weight quickly. She is a quick study, too, conquering the doggie door right away. Pico is cohabitating just fine with her foster siblings, including a smaller dog, but is not cat tolerant.
Pico's skin issues were greatly helped via the use of Vetericyn!
The special medical treatment cost needed by Pico is why the Miss Mesa Fund was established. If you would like to help with Pico's care, please take a moment to make a donation to the fund.

You WILL and CAN make a difference in Pico's life and the lives of other greyhounds in need of special medical care. Your help and support will make a difference...one greyhound at a time.
Pico remembered how to use the dog door, and will dash out with her foster siblings to chase any squirrels who foolishly run along the fence. She hasn't caught any yet, which is a relief to her foster mom.
Pico remains a people-centered Greyhound. She is always the first hound to come for ear scritches or petting, and is never too far from her humans. She seems to be indiscriminate in her affection - she loves everybody who comes through the door! She'll pace a bit when you leave the house, and wag her whole body when you come home, but most of all she'll fill your heart and home with the joy of a Greyhound who has forgiven all the past hurt visited upon her.
Dr. Radash is out of town until Tuesday, at which time he and Dr. Ellis want an update from the foster home. They will determine what course of action should be taken at that time. It definitely appears the medication she is on is helping.
