Patti Dawson loves a good challenge.
The President of Dallas Dog Rescue Rehab Reform takes on the responsibility of caring for dogs in desperate need. Though the group formed to help rescue street dogs in Dallas, Texas, they’ve evolved into a last resort rescue for dogs that most likely won’t get adopted.
One of those “last resort” dogs came to Dawson from a shelter in San Antonio recently. Her name is Serenity and what makes the Husky special is her appearance. The dog has an invasive tumor that has “invaded her nasal cavity and gone up above her eye sockets and skull.”
Most of the bones of her face have been affected by the tumor. Dawson knew Serenity deserved a fighting chance and the best life possible despite the tumor.
“She gets up, leans in with this huge tumor and does this bump to me, like dogs do the bump, and kissed my face,” Dawson stated. “At that point, I knew we were going to fight to the death to do what we could to save her because she had the life left in her.”
So far, Serenity has seen an oncologist, internal medicine specialist, and a critical specialist for help. She can see, breathe, and eat, but there isn’t anything they can do to fix the tumor.
Although Dawson was hoping for better news, she will continue to love Serenity and provide her with an amazing life.
Images from a professional photoshoot of Serenity recently went viral, so people began sending in treats and packages for the precious pooch.
We wish her all the best!
