Eggy wandered up on a woman's porch in Twiggs County, GA, trying to get in her home on a freezing cold night. The elderly woman was terrified of dogs and her rural county does not have an Animal Control. The police would not approach Eggy as they said he was being fearful. Luckily, our friends at nearby Macon-Bibb Animal Control sprang into action to secure the dog and Jason drove 3 hours, late in the evening on December 10th, 2019 to pick him up. Eggy is a special boy and he was lovingly named in honor of our founder, Jason's, late brother who passed away 15 years ago. Eggy was his brother's childhood nickname and his birthday is on December 18th, just a few days away from Eggy's freedom ride.
It is very apparent from his condition that some extremely bad things have happened to Eggy. He has clearly suffered tremendously and we are grateful to be the positive start to his journey. Dear, sweet Eggy is Forlorn no more and will know nothing but love from here on out. Eggy was evaluated by our vet and has a long list of ailments. His condition was so critical, he had to undergo surgery to clean and repair multiple lacerations and have part of his tail amputated as it was down to the bone. Luckily, he bloodwork came back good. There are remnants of a buck-shot and and bone fragments on his x-ray consistent with a gunshot wound to the face. His eye will be stitched up and we're going to try to save his eye. Eggy is loaded with intestinal parasites, fleas, and ticks. Along with the wounds all over his body, Eggy has pressure sores down to the bone. He is so thin and malnourished that his body condition score is a 1 out of 9. Poor Eggy has suffered far too long from neglect and abuse, but to top it all off, Eggy is heartworm positive as well. His healing journey will be one for the record books, but despite his condition, Eggy is strong, sweet, and wagging his tail (or soon to be nub!).
