UPDATE: 7/14/17: Great news! Wendy only ended up needing one gland removed, so the surgery wasn’t as extensive as first thought. Plus, the removed tissue was biopsied and came back negative, so she’s good to go as soon as she gets her stitches out! At the vet office, she saw several kitties walking around and could not have cared less. Her remaining mammaries still have some thick tissue, which is normal for a female who was spayed later in lift, but the vet confirmed that this thickened tissue is nothing to worry about, so he didn’t put her through the extra surgery.

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!
