UPDATE 6/9/17: Since Wendy arrived in February, she has exhibited signs of mastitis, an infection of the mammary glands that usually clears up after a round of antibiotics. However, further testing after several rounds of antibiotics point to mammary tumors that need to be removed, so she will need a quadruple mastectomy. Her pre-op bloodwork and chest x-rays show a possible issue, so she will go on another med and repeat those tests in a month to see if surgery is still an option. Please hold good thoughts for Wendy and consider making a donation toward her mounting vet bills. If this surgery is able to happen, she will have a good long life! If surgery is not an option, she will become part of our Guardian Angel program.

Wendy is an adorable, 60-pound, pint-sized girl, who is about 6 years old. She is a very loving girl who likes to cuddle! Wendy has no background because she was found wandering stray in a neighboring state. After unsuccessfully searching for her owners, the family who found her decided to keep her. However, Wendy didn’t appreciate the small dog in their home, so they decided it was best if they didn’t keep Wendy. Fast forward to now, and Wendy is safe with us, and she’s looking for a home with no little dogs. In fact, although she seems to tolerate bigger dogs who don’t get in her space, she would probably be more comfortable with no doggy friends. Her ideal home might be with a low-key individual or couple who like to do a little walking. The first time Wendy’s foster mom said, ‘wanna go for a walk?’ her face lit up and she ran around in circles! A few times around the block and Wendy is ready to come back inside and cuddle with you. Due to a shortage of foster homes, she has been staying in a nice boarding facility. She ignored the kitties when tested, but she is very interested in typical yard critters. Wendy tested positive for Lyme disease, which was treated with a month of antibiotics. She should not have any adverse effects from that, so please don’t let that deter you from adopting her. If you’re looking for a sweet, easy dog who favorite thing is to cuddle, is good in the house, and is housebroken, Wendy could be your girl! Look at her videos to see her in action!
