Cuddle bug seeks foster home
There is an immediate foster home needed for this young dog named Penelope Please no cats or small dogs! If you are interested in fostering, contact Tucson Cold Wet Noses/attn Terri Goddard. Penelope is at High Risk if a new foster home is not found immediately.
Aside from the no cats or small dogs, Penelope is very sweet and loving with people. She likes to sit in your lap and cuddle in bed. She would be a marvelous pet for someone who has no other animals, or at least no cats and some savvy with slowly introducing her to other dogs, but not small dogs.
Penelope had a bath last night with medicated shampoo for itchy skin; and although she did not enjoy being pulled into the shower stall, she responded well. She LOVED being groomed. I think because the brushing felt good to her itchy skin.
Penelope also loves going for walks around the neighborhood and enjoyed running part of the way. Except for her attitude to cats and small dogs, she is well behaved.
Penelope was seen by Dr. Laton at Twin Peaks Veterinary Center. Penelope has not been spayed yet and is in heat. She has a bit of a stuffy nose, but that is not a concern as much as her extreme itching. The doctor says that it’s allergies. She tested negative for mites. She does have a yeast infection, but apparently the underlying cause of the yeast infection is the allergies, which could be either environmental or food related. Dr. Layton said she was healthy enough to be spayed right away.
So here’s a sweet dog that would do well as an only dog or with the right introduction to bigger dogs. Penelope sounds like a cuddle bug that would make you get up off the couch and take the both of you for walks or runs.
Is the right person or family out there willing to give Penelope a chance? A chance to live, otherwise her chances are not so good. Please contact Cold Wet Noses immediately to help Penelope.
