Sandy's Story

I just realized I haven't done a post about Sandy.   Here is Sandy today......a big difference from when she showed up on our front porch on the morning of hurricane Sandy, hence her name :0)


Here are the pictures of her when I found her.........
She was at the vets as she had mange.  There was no way that I could take care of her so I contacted the rescue group that I work with and asked for their help.  They found a clinic that could board her until the mange was cleared up.  She stayed there a month.  They did lots of tests on her and found that she has an autoimmune thyroid issue and has to stay on meds for the rest of her life.  She had skin issues that were secondary to the thyroid issue and could hardly walk.  Her feet were a mess and even today she will still have issues with them although not near as bad.


 

Here she is at our house, home from her stay at the vets.  Her coat is just starting to come in, she went almost completely bald.
 
This is Sandy on Christmas day.  She was finally healthy enough to come along with the rest of the gang for a hike.  Her feet still had sores so the boots helped.
This Tuesday she gets spayed.  We figure she has had a least one litter and is probably around 2-3 years old.  She is now ready for her forever family.  She is one happy dog :0)
