Miss Dayzee- Unfortunately until just recently this girl has not had a kind life. She was picked up during the Fourth of July holiday by Animal Control. It was extremely hot , she was wandering , thirsty, and disoriented ( she is mostly deaf). She remained unclaimed at the shelter for 10 days-was given the seven day extension-still no one came for her or showed interest. While she was in the shelter and they were doing an evaluation it was noted that she tried to bite a volunteer. Had they taken a closer look they've had seen that her mouth was fully infected her gums were inflamed the girl was drooling thick infection from her mouth. She could not eat for the teeth in the front we're just loosely hanging on and it was an effort to drink water. I drove down and picked her up the day before her time was set to expire-and I first noticed the horrific smell ( like a dead rotting animal) which led me to take a closer look at her mouth. The following morning she visited are Rescue Vet Clinic-she was put on a heavy dose of anabiotic's and mild pain reliever she would not let anybody come near her mouth she was in severe pain. We also had no history on her so we had to have her fully vaccinated. For the next four days she enjoyed ice cream sandwiches yogurt butter bread and tiny pieces of cheese. Anything we could get into her with her medication. By the end of the week it was determined she was ready for some dental surgery. She had 16 teeth removed, some easily pulled, a few fell out when touched and some fell apart so they had to be cut out. She was able to keep her canines they have recessed gums lined but seem strong enough and in her case are extremely needed. During the operation she was also spayed- her uterus was completely full of cysts. They were also planning to repair a herniated belly button but once she was shaved and they took a closer look they realized it was a pretty large flat brown tumor. They removed the tumor also five inches in length. It took a couple of days for her to realize what actually happened to her-The pain of something was still there but it was not what she had been experiencing for a very long time. She came back to the yard and has improved 100% every single day. Her tail is wagging she has incredible sparkle in her eyes. She is deeply affectionate she is house trained. She is very hard of hearing- but she follows hand signals and stays very close to people anyway. Favorite place is a half-size dog bed next to the couch she likes to just lay her head in the dog bed in her body halfway under the couch. Has been sleeping a lot- but her activity level has increased she also has been on a few short walks the last couple of days. I did get the lab results back on the tumor which was removed- I will include the lab results in the picture portfolio. Did test positive for cancer but they feel that the surgeon removed everything. It is the lowest grade on the chart and they do recommend she be rechecked every year. She is eating well -in fact she loves to eat. She still has not been able to master a bone but she sure likes to carry one in her mouth now. My best guess because of the extenuating dental disease, we think Miss Dayzee is 8 to 10 years old. She does not seem to have any stiffness or arthritis in her joints she can easily do the stairs and has been going on short walks. She is very social with adults & children, other dogs (unless you've just given her a cookie) she does enjoy the car rides too!! It is hard for me to set an adoption fee for this sweet gal. We have invested several hundred dollars in her-I want her to have a very happy life moving forward. She is a great companion for someone who just needs that special friend close by. I will help with transportation to an approved home. Again I just want her treated like a Princess every day for the rest of her life.
Sunny- or our SunnyBunnie Arrived in the US from China this past April. She has been in a foster home for several months building up the strength in her left shoulder and working on behavior and endurance. She completed the full course a few weeks ago and her trainer said she was remarkable. Very smart girl who loves to please. Sunny is also very determined-it might take her a timer to you but she will eventually complete the task. Her incredible foster mom takes her up for 2 to 3 walks per day they are not a long distance but she thoroughly enjoys them. SB has been known to have occasionally just not wanted to go very far -just not in the mood for a walk. She without we hesitation will just plant that hind end & she ain't movin. Last year when she was pulled into safety from a meat truck she had already been injured on her right front leg. The medical care is pretty minimal when they are taken to the temporary shelter environment. UnFortunately she did not get medical treatment in time the wound /injury was too deep and too infected she ended up having the front leg amputated. She is a friendly girl especially to her humans. She gets along with other dogs but the smaller ones sometimes seem to just sort of annoy her. For the past four months she has lived with a 12 pound pet bunny and they seem to be able to coincidence without any problems and respect each other's space. According to the medical records which were sent with her upon arrival she has been determined to be approximately five years old. Is spayed she is fully vaccinated. She is heartworm negative. She is house trained, knows basic commands. Had a dental cleaning recently has some very worn teeth. She is not a picky eater and she does enjoy string cheese. She would do best in a home without any stairs or maybe one or two upon entry. She is a clean dog she enjoys laying on her pillow or even out on the grass. Loves to go for car rides-she is a people pleaser. Sunny is currently in the Salt Lake City, Utah area in a foster home. Upon an approved adoption application transport will be discussed/ arranged. She would be great in a home where her new family was not super active but enjoyed going for short stroll's and even worked from home. Her Adoption Fee is $300. We do feel it best though that our dogs go out on a foster to adopt arrangement -she would be able to spend a couple of weeks in her new home adjusting before we would complete the adoption process. ☀️ Sunny girl deserves a home of her own and a family to love her forever. ddeserves toget that perfect forever home Applications are located on the website- saveasam.org.
