Rescued Dog Allergic to Humans Gets Special Treatment, New Home in Indiana
The black lab mix was found to be allergic to human dander among other things.
-- A rescued black Labrador mix allergic to people can finally play with his human "parent" in his new home without having to worry about itchy, red skin and patches of fur falling out, according to Lucky Dog Rescue Retreat in Indianapolis, Indiana.
The lab mix, Adam, was rescued by the rescue retreat from a local pound where he faced possible euthanization in July of last year, said the rescue retreat's president, Robin Herman.
"When we first saw him, he looked just absolutely miserable," Herman told ABC News. "His skin was just seeping. He felt like Vaseline. Reddish-pinkish fluid would just ooze out of his skin."
The rescue center, which was working with Indianapolis' Animal Medical Center, originally believed that Adam, who was one-a-half at the time, had flea dermatitis.
Months went by and his condition didn't get better.
