Old Shelter Dog Who Had Painful Skin Condition Now Gets Spa Days in New Home

Hubie is a senior dog who came to Best Friends Animal Society from a local shelter in Utah, where he was surrendered because his owner was being admitted into a retirement facility.

He had a very serious skin condition and would need costly, life-long treatment in order to stay healthy. Because of this, he would need a forever home with an experienced human who would help give him the love and special care that he needed.

Luckily, Dr. Zoe Braun, who has a passion for senior dogs and geriatric medicine, saw Best Friends’ Facebook post about Hubie, and immediately wanted to help him.

After meeting Hubie, she decided to make him a permanent member of her family! Dr. Braun knows exactly how to care for a dog like Hubie, so he will be happy and healthy for the rest of his days with Dr. Braun.

He even has his own personal spa days in his new home, when Dr. Braun gives him medicated baths to help soothe his skin. She has also put him on new medications, which has helped his itchy skin tremendously.
