Two nights ago we wrote a quick "tease" that Lady, our newest foster, had arrived. Lady had a very bad night with us. She was 6-7 years old, and had just been spayed. She was still reacting to the anesthesia and she threw up all night long. By the next morning the bi-peds panicked when she could not even take a lap of water without throwing up. Her stomach was making loud noises and she was very lethargic. The Official Golden Retriever Rescue Vet opens at 7:00, they had her there for a follow up.
Lady has two very distinct features. She is extremely skinny, from wandering abandoned before she found shelter, she weighs only 51 pounds. She also has lower front teeth that come forward and give her a perpetual grin with a slightly threatening look as her teeth are sticking out front. It does not seem to bother her, she can still chew treats with the best of them.
She is well leash broken, she obeys commands, and she is well house broken. She gets along well with other dogs and cats. Like many abandoned dogs, we don't know her real name, but she responds to almost anything you say to her and Lady seems to be a good fit. We will give her a few days to recover before we post her story on the adoption page, she has been through a lot lately and she needs to relax and grow stronger (and fatter).
