Tiinkerbell's Update

July 2012
Many of Freddy's readers have been following the story of Tiinkerbell, a pit bull was found on a street in Jacksonville, Fla. She was rescued by the Pit Sisters on June 20th. At that time, Tiinkerbell weighed 25 lbs. (11.3 kg).

Tiinkerbell is getting better. She was released from the vet's care to a foster home. Although we're still waiting for a picture with happiness in her eyes, Tiinkerbell is flourishing! She now weighs 39 lbs. (17.7 kg)!! Tiinkerbell wears a doggie size large, and her most recent measurements are:
Neck to tail base: 18.5 inches
Ankle to shoulder: 12 inches
Neck around: 12.5-13ish inches 
Chest: 7 inches
Her teeth were previously filed down {why?!} so she needs soft treats. Shampoo needs to be gentle and aloe is the best lotion for her. Care packages can be sent to 14286-19 #234 Beach Blvd., Jacksonville, FL 32250.
