Welcome Pixie this teeny tiny prancing love muffin girl! Pixie and her puppy were found as strays and brought to Kern Couty Animal Services with both of their trails rotting and falling off. They both had what is known as "dead tail", which is typically caused by some sort of trauma. We think since it was both mom and son with it that someone had tried to "dock" the tails by wrapping a rubber band around them to get them to fall off. Its super painful and awful to do an animal! Her puppies tail was so bad the shelter had it removed within hours of his arrival. Pixie still had her black rotting tail when we found them at the shelter and knew we had to jump right into help them both.
Pixies tail has been successfully removed and shes feeling much much better! The stitches come out soon and she is looking for her furever home now. Her puppy still has a few weeks left before he can be adopted so were looking for someone to spoil and pamper this sweet teeny girl for the rest of her life! If you would live to give Pixie her furever home, please apply to adopt her today!
