-Stacy Lou Who-
Stacy Lou Who is a very special little girl. Shortly after her arrival here we realized she had a heart issue. Since she we felt she was under 5 years old we we were quick to make an appointment with a cardiologist to determine what was going on. She was found to have a condition called PDA, which is a small vein used during pregnancy that closes off after birth. Hers did not close and having that cross over was causing her heart to work very hard and to sound like a very bad double heart murmur. The condition is not a problem with the heart itself, but the arteries supplying blood to it. The overworking caused by the condition had cause some enlargement. The good thing with this is that the condition is correctable by surgery. At that Cardologist visit he also identified that the lower lid of her genetic small eye was turned inward. Since she was doing so wonderfully through the PDA repair he opted to remove that bad eye so that the source of future contamination and issues was gone. After Stacy had her surgery there was a significant change in how her heart felt in her chest. Within a few days she had become a different girl outgoing and engaging, playing with the other young kids. Stacy Lou found a home today with a wonderful couple who will continue her care with the cardiologist and provide for whatever she may need in her upcoming years. Thank you so much to all who donated to help us provide Stacy with her surgery and congratulations to Kevin and Julie on their new family member.
-Lulu now Mila-
Lulu is another
perfect example of what shaving your Pom will do to the coat. It is obvious that she was cut into a Lion Cut. Then when the sun and weather was able to reach her skin it became very damaged. Protecting her skin with t-shirts and medicated baths may help to restore it to good health - but the likely hood of ever having a lovely Pom coat again is pretty slim.
This poor little man was removed from his home, by an officer, with an untreated partial amputation. When asked what happened the officer was told that "his foot just fell off a couple months ago". Charges were pressed. After arrival at the shelter they amputated the remainder of the leg. You can see in the pictures he is a fun and silly boy. Being a tripod has not slowed him a bit. Now he is a much loved member of an Amazing family.
Riddle of the day - What is ? + ? and has springs in his feet - Answer Tyrion!
My guess is ? + ? = Doxie + Yorkie... maybe...
Tyrion is our perpetual motion machine. He will be joining a young couple who will have fun
finding all the wiggles and putting the leaps to good work.
-Princess and Texas-
Princess and Texas did not arrive here together or from the same place, but they now have a wonderful forever home together with two wonderful ladies.
-Elektra aka Hazel-
Elektra, now Hazel, has fit right in to our family and she seems very happy. Hazel is smart and enjoys learning tricks and what we expect of her. She has a great temperament and enjoys going anywhere we go. Her separation anxiety is subsiding and her worried expression is going away as well. Her eyes look happy.
The vet let us know that she has a heart murmur and we will be monitoring it twice a year. She has been eating well and appears to be gaining weight.
Here she is, in Maltese heaven, enjoying some lap time with one of her kids and Lucy. Janell"
-Wookie aka Shakie, Shake Rattle and Roll-
This is the most amazing placement. Sharon and Eric have adopted from me before. When I received these Poms, Sally was having issues with her knee and my intention was to keep her for a bit to see how progressed and if more treatment was going to be necessary. Sharon and Eric jumped in without hesitation falling in love with Sally's sweet and silly personality immediately. They have experience working with knee issues in little dogs and are totally committed to giving Sally whatever care her knee needs in the future. Feeling very blessed today that we have such wonderful people who touch our lives. I know that Sally is going to receive the very best.
