    Default Red legs and hind quarters ...

    Hey everyone! Got our foster girl, Jada, today. She is soooo super sweet, loving and gentle. Her overall health seems ok (vet check scheduled for Tuesday) but my first concern is her skin. I am hoping its food related (she was on royal canin and abady?!) but figured I would share a few pics here and see if anyone has any ideas. They did tell us that she licks and bites and her paws but he cleans them good to stop that. Haven't seen her do that at all today. Anyway, here are the few pics I took. (Sorry for the poor quality, they are phone pics.

    Oh and I've included a collage of my fav pics of her so far. She loves to give paw!

    Those swollen lumps on her legs can come from being crated without bedding excessively, or laying on hard surfaces a lot, or with old age.... How old is she?

    "6 or 7". She was given to them so they don't really know. In some ways, she looks older to me but then she jumps around like a young dog. Pretty sure it's been years since she has seen a vet and her teeth look like they've never been cleaned. . I don't think the owners purposely neglected her, just think they didn't know better. He told me how sensitive her skin is to baths and gave her a bath before he brought her. It was obvious he cared for her. Poor sweet thing

    If you dont already, get her a hypoallergenic shampoo. Im sure the vet will have some ideas too. She looks like she would be a sweetie. Congrats again

    She does look sweet and is a beauty. Like Lisa said, it does look like the sores are from being in a crate too much or on a hard surface. Just keep them clean and maybe put some Neosporin on it, but she may lick it off, and a food change will also help. Congrats on your new foster baby and thanks for helping her.

    Thanks everyone!
    @Davidh, I was thinking that and a friend who's a bullie lover too mentioned another cream that did wonders on his bullie.

    She is starting to get a little spunky which is so cute!

    And here's a pic of her ear. just got close to them and boy they look awful. Just completely full. She let me near them but I don't want to try cleaning them in case there is more of an issue. My poor girl!
