Not the kind I give birth too - Thank God, though that in itself would be a miracle all it's own, possibly creating world fame and maybe some fortune. - Nonetheless, I have a new girl joining us us soon:
Cassidy, a white Boxer, was rescued from the Richmond Animal Shelter. She showed up as a stray and no one claimed her. She is completely deaf and was positive for hookworms, roundworms, heartworms and sarcoptic mange when she arrived at the shelter.
She has put on about 10 lbs in foster care, completed her mange treatments and is starting to regrow some of her hair. Shell be coming to my house to go through the heartworm treatment, work on her house training and be spayed. She will then be up for adoption.
We have not had her around cats yet. She's so gentle and submissive, though, I have a hard time thinking of her trying to hurt or even chase anything. She's very good with other dogs and has been out with Elvis this week. She just follows him around wherever he goes. They don't play....they just hang out together. She was a really bad barker when she arrived at her 1st foster home...They put the bark collar on her for 2 days and she's stopped completely. She doesn't wear it at all now and never barks. If she starts back up at our house we will borrow the collar. She hasn't been loose in the house at all because she's been contagious and it's doubtful she's housetrained...She still has accidents in the crate. Of course, she's been in the crate about 22 hours a day so that may improve dramatically now that she can be out of the crate more. Her last dose of Revolution was applied last night.
I'll update you all with pics soon! If you can contribute to Cassidy's heartworm treatments, or some of the other dogs in foster care with Richmond Boxer Rescue please go to www.richmondboxerrescue.org or www.rbr.petfinder.com and click on the Donate link.
