Meet the newest addition to my family, Parasy Betro (or in English, Flea Rabbit). She is two months old we think and was one of a litter at my site mate Savanna’s neighbor’s house. Animals here are not really treated the way they are in the States, but rather abused and neglected. I saw Parasy scounging through the trash looking for something to eat, and my heart just melted. This is the dog I need to rescue. You could see her ribs through her skin and it reminded me of the dog I have back home when we rescued her from the shelter. I gave her some food I bought from the closest mpivarotra and her jumping around like a puppy should be is how she got her Gasy name. Savanna and I couldn’t decide on which to chose, so Parasy is her first name, Betro her middle, and her last name of course Nielsen, mine. Parasy just needs a little loving and in the next week or two I’m going to take her to Fianar and get her all the good stuff, vaccinations and getting her fixed. I don’t need a million little Parasy running around.
Sorry for the lighting, better pictures to come soon.
