Today I adopted this little girl dragon. She is another one that was handed in at the pet shop because the owner couldn't be bothered with her. The pet shop asked me if I would take her because their only option was to have her put to sleep. The reason being, she has been so badly neglected that she is little more than a skeleton, starved for so long that even eating could kill her now. She is taking small amounts of food but we have to try to build this amount up very slowly and at the moment it is not enough,
I will be putting her on a diet high in protein probably in a liguid form in the hope it will build her up.
We have called her Grace, and although I may be setting myself up for heartbreak because I really do not know if she will recover, I could not just walk away from her. When I picked her up I nearly cried, she is so pitifully thin and weak, but she is alert so this gives me hope.
Keep your fingers crossed for this little dragon, she is home now, whatever the outcome.
