The female dog, named January, had recently given birth to puppies and the group said the dog was very thin and had very pale gums when she was found.
She was taken to the Veterinary Emergency Center in Canton where she underwent treatment and testing.
The dog’s blood levels are down and “it looks like she is having a bone marrow issue. More tests have been done and result pending. If those are negative, a sample of the bone marrow is needed. Please pray for her,” said the organization on their Facebook page.
Brass City Rescue Alliance confirms that January suffers from mastitis and had to be taken to a vet clinic in Rhode Island to undergo surgery. She is expected back at the emergency vet clinic in Canton over the weekend. If you’re interested in donating you can PayPal firstname.lastname@example.org or mail a check to:
