24 Apr Dottie
Dottie came to IBR after a Good Samaritan took her in but couldn’t care for her long term.
The Good Samaritan had Dottie spayed before rescue intake, and the veterinarian found a cyst, which he removed during the surgery. The cyst was not biopsied. We have performed a full blood panel and everything appears to have been rectified by the removal of the cyst. She shows no signs of any medial issues or cancer. She received a clean bill of health.
Clearly, by looking at Dottie, you can assume she was used for breeding. Her underbelly has all the signs. Even through all the adversity she has faced, she remains a happy little girl.
Dottie lives currently with children and several other dogs. She can be a little jealous at times, and snippy on occasion, but is acclimating to foster care wonderfully and shares space with the foster dog siblings amicably. Dottie is not aggressive. She will alert another dog if it’s in her space or she feels uncomfortable. And, whilst she lives with other dogs, she would need submissive dogs in her forever home.
Dottie needs a daily eye lubricant and we have started her on a joint supplement, which we would like to see continued. Dottie cannot hear. She is very alert to her humans movements so it’s very easy to get her to go outside for potty breaks or to her crate for bed.
Dottie doesn’t get on the furniture or chew at all. She has shown little interest in toys and prefers shorter walks. She loves car rides!
Dottie is a great girl. Very snuggly and loyal. She would make an amazing companion or addition to any family.
