    The vet today has determined that she could be nine yrs old. She does have a slightly rolled back left eye. She also has a heart murmur. She's eating well and feeling better. The first thing the vet wanted to do is nail her with Steroids. We said no way and settled with cephelexin for now and a increase in Omega 3s with a holistic diet of no grains. Tested negative for mange and didn't seem like a yeast infection. Possibly just a bad skin allergy from poor diet. She is not malnutritioned though. This little girl wieghed in at 56# We are trying to track down who turned her in so we can find her vet records and her real name. She has come very accustomed to Ginger though. Maybe I made a good guess. She is so sweet and loves to play fetch.

    She is so lucky to have gotten to you. We all know you're going to take AWESOME care of her. Poor girl, she looks so uncomfortable... I can't wait to see her improvements.

    The poor girl's fur looks so rough and matted and painful! Some love, good food, a good brushing and the meds will likely do wonders for her.

    Ginger will be a beautiful dog once her hair grows back right. I have always had a special place in my heart for collies since I use to have one... Good luck w/ her...are you gonna keep her or find her another home?

    Oh my gosh, do me a favor and please take good care of her and give her a hug and kiss from me. I am so saddened to see a dog like that in a condition like that! Poor girl. I am happy you took her in!
    You're the one sure thing I've found so you better stick around...

    I hope they can find her previous owner & at least make sure they never own another dog again. That is so wrong.
    So glad she's with you now, you obviously see her for the beautiful sweet spirit she is. Will keep her in my prayers.
