Hi! Sounds like your new pet has ear mites...they make the ears look very dirty and can smell too. Does the dog shake her head alot? Anyway, take a rag, wet it in warm water, a drop of shampoo and start cleaning her ears...now for the canal part...use a Q-tip dipped in baby oil, or olive oil and clean the canals, just what you can see...do not jab it in any openings.

For her dry skin, I would first bathe her, rinse her and then you can dilute lotion half & half with water and use for a conditioner. After your pet is dry, brush her lightly. Now you can also put lotion & water(half&half) in a spray bottle and you can spray and rub it lightly into her coat for the next couple of weeks.

If this doesn't help...take her to the vet, ask them if you can do a payment plan and tell them about how she was recused and they might give you a break. Or call your ASPCA or animal shelter and see if they have any advice for you.

Good Luck, Glad you were able to help save this pet! You did a Good Thing!

BoggsZ, When a dog shakes their head alot it is an indication of ear mites...you can pick up ear mite medicine at Walmart...not too expensive....you have to treat the ears for awhile...directions on the bottle. Since the dog sounds like it is heavily infested I still would clean the ears first...then use the ear mite medicine.

My friend has a ****er spaniel too and it is such a great dog...so gentle, kind and not demanding...she loves all people and always loves to be talked to and petted...sounds like you have a great dog too. Enjoy!
