Blondie's Skin at Intake!!
Hello There! My name is Blondie! I am a 12 year old spayed female Yellow Labrador Retriever mix who was rescued just about a month ago all the way from Alabama as I was at risk to be euthanized! I was in rough shape but was still so sweet and full of life so of course the shelter staff couldn’t help but fall in love with me. When I was transported here to ANNA, I was sent out to The ANNA Wellness Center West to be examined and get full diagnostics (bloodwork and Xrays) done by Dr. Bahl! I had severe Dental Disease, a nasty skin infection and my Xrays showed that I have Osteoarthritis and Bilateral Hip Dysplasia! I was placed on an several different antibiotics, pain meds, a joint supplement (lifelong) and was scheduled for my Dental to be preformed once I started feeling better. I’ve been in foster care ever since and boy have I flourished!! I received my Dental, got some cysts removed and my arthritis has greatly improved with proper diet, productive yet limited exercise and daily joint care! I am now searching for a forever home with a loving family where I can live out the rest of my golden years happy and unconditionally loved! Don’t let all this arthritis talk fool you...I may be a super senior but I am still very spry and have tons of love left to give! I get along wonderfully with other animals and older children too! Due to my arthritis, I will have some limitations which include but are not limited to not being able to use stairs/steps. I will need to stay at a healthy lean weight, get daily exercise to help loosen stiff joints as well as keep my muscles strong and receive daily joint care lifelong! If you think you could provide me with the best possible home and care, please submit an application for pre-approval to meet with me!
