This poor little girl was brought to the BARC Clinic in Ubud by her owner on the 5th January. She was in pain, with a maggot infested wound on her back. Her owner wanted to leave Molly with us as he didn’t want to treat it. He could speak English so Linda, who was in the clinic when they arrived, had a conversation with him. She established that Molly was around 9 months old and has spent her entire life in a cage. Linda explained that we simply didn’t have the facilities to treat a wound like Molly’s, and advised him to take her directly to the vet. After all, he should take responsibility for his own dog.
Molly’s owner waited until no-one was looking, dumped her on the front steps and sped off on his motorbike. We doubt we will ever see him again and perhaps this is the best thing for little Molly!
Making her as comfortable as we could overnight she was rushed to Sunset Vet the next morning. Her surgery took hours as they picked out all of the maggots from within the 5 cm deep wound. Molly was also sterilized while she was under the anesthetic.
Her wound has necessarily been left open to drain and heal, requiring a minimum of two weeks intensive after care to ensure it remains infection free and allowing the deep hole to close up.
Considering the severity of her wounds and the fact that her previous owner just abandoned her, Molly is in VERY good spirits. Watch this short video of our adorably happy girl! She is one very lucky pug and is currently being cared for by BARCateer, Sharon and her partner. BARC medical personnel are going out to monitor her progress every two days as well. We are doing our best to ensure there are no complications that would require additional surgery.
Can you help to cover the costs associated with Molly’s surgery and ongoing recovery?
The surgery and intensive after care mentioned above, comes to $350 USD. Molly will need to be monitored, treated and cared for while the wound recovers, estimated at an additional 6 weeks and we would love to find a suitable foster home during this time.
When she is fully recovered she will be ready for vaccination and adoption. We will be looking for a new, safe and comfortable forever home for this little cutie. Somewhere that she doesn’t have to live in a cage, worry about being badly treated or thrown away ever again.

Estimated total to cover Molly’s surgery and rehabilitation is: $500 USD
