Supporting Filip

Recently, a pregnant mom, Ash, joined the Agape family. Ash is a dachshund/beagle mix who formerly lived in deplorable conditions with other dogs who were also rescued. We quickly learned that Ash was pregnant. After a round of x-rays we could see she had four small babies in her belly. Due to poor health conditions at the time of rescue, her puppies did not develop property. Filip, pictured here, has struggled the most. This tiny pup was born with clubbed feet and needed to see the vet within the first days of his birth. He was given splints that rapidly improved all of his limb mobility, but the battle for his health is still ongoing.

At 7 weeks, Filip attended a photoshoot with his siblings, explored a few new places, and received his first round of puppy shots. Currently, Filip still looks minuscule compared to his normal-sized litter mates (think half the size of a Beanie Baby), and is still learning to drink water on his own. Not only will he need additional time, up to two months extra, with his mom before he is ready for adoption, but his hundreds of dollars in medical bills continue to grow.

It is because of generous supporters like YOU that we are able to care for both healthy and special needs puppies through our comprehensive foster and adoption program. Without Agape’s puppy program, Filip, all of his siblings, and his mama Ash might not have gotten a chance. Soon they will be life-changing additions to wonderful families.

Thank you for supporting Agape Animal Rescue’s puppy program during Middle Tennessee’s Big Payback day!

We are committed to making sure more puppies like Filip will live to find their forever families.
