Bellery is a horribly neglected but sweet senior Shih Tzu surrendered to ACC and rescued by All Sentient Beings.
All Sentient Beings rescued Bellery (A0957423), a 12 year old senior Shih Tzu, surrendered to ACC and badly neglected. Her medical notes from 2/15/13 are as follows:

Bellery was transported to our Vet on 2/19/13. He determined that she is blind in both eyes and has numerous wounds, including one which was so badly neglected that it now needs specific medical care and suturing. Bellery's 4/6 heart murmur was confrmed and she now needs blood work, x-ray, and an echo to diagnose her illness, determine the proper medications, and rule out additional pathology. Bellery has significant dental disease and is unable to be sedated to address her teeth or suture her wounds until her cardiac status is known. Lastly, she has generalized hind leg weakness, possibly neurologic in origin but yet to be confirmed.
Bellery has a long road of recovery ahead of her and ASB would love to give her the opportunity to spend her senior years in a good home, with love and dignity.
