New Arrival
We picked Carolina up from a Tucson shelter in early April. She is in rough shape and potentially exposed to Strep Zoo (Streptococcus  Zooepidemicus). Strep Zoo in dogs is a serious respiratory illness. The symptoms include: coughing, nasal discharge, vomiting, labored breathing, and coughing blood. The onset of the illness is typically sudden.

The shelter believes Caroline is about 6 years old, she has been used for breeding, and came to the shelter with a running nose and swelling on her left hind foot. The vet said she has severe bridging spondylosis throughout thoracic and lumbar spine. She is severely underweight – they brought her in at about 80 pounds and gave her body score of 3/9. She is intact, so will need to be spayed, and a heartworm check. The shelter gave her vaccines for Rabies, Intra-trac, and DHPP, and microchipped her.
Caroline rode wonderfully in the car, though it took several minutes to get her into it and calmed down before we left the shelter. She goes right in her crate and never makes a peep – she is still on medicine and recuperating that may make her sedate, but she just seems very laid back. She has let her foster mom clean her ears, and her foster mom  gave her a quick bath outside as it was near 90 degrees and boy did it make her feel better – she got a little zoomy and was play bowing. Caroline doesn’t really know what to do with a ball, but she likes to stand byher foster mom  and get attention. She is eating well, and loves food and taking her pills.

All of our rescues are spayed/neutered, up to date on shots and micro chipped before being placed. Completed application, vet reference and a home check required. We do NOT ship or fly rescues as it’s too stressful on them. For additional information please email us
