Elle came from the Gonzales Shelter, where a good citizen took her after finding her on the side of the road. It appears she may have been hit by a car and might have a small skull fracture. There is a large abscess in the area and she is first being treated with medication to help with that and the swelling before further assessment can be made. Elle is about 8 weeks old and weighs 8 pounds and she is such a sweet girl to have such a rough start.

Elle will not be ready for adoption for another month or so, we will keep you posted on her progress.

UPDATE: Elle has been on medication for a week and is definitely feeling better. The abscess is draining and the swelling is going down. In another week we can get more xrays and will have a better idea of her next step in recovery. The most recent picture of Elle, she is laying on the tan dog bed.

UPDATE: The swelling is down and she went to the vet for a recheck. The best news, no signs of a skull fracture. She still has some infection where the abscess was draining so a little bit more medicine and some baths to clear it up. She should be ready for her forever home in another couple weeks.
