At A Glance
10/6/06: Pretty Penny arrived in Rochester two nights ago. She is a very dainty 10 year old lady who is in need of lots of TLC. She was rescued from a farmer in Iowa who was going to shoot her and her sister Jenny. (Jenny was placed in a loving home by her rescuer.) Penny spent her life outside, being asked to produce lots of puppies and when she was unable to have more babies, her time was up. Fortunately, a very loving person saved her and now she is going to live out her life in the loving embrace of RAGOM.
Penny is a sweet sweet little girl. She weighs 59 pounds, which is a little slim, but a good weight for her height. She is scared, but is really gaining self confidence. She loves to be petted, and is going to be someone's ultimate Velcro dog.
Penny needs some continued vetting. She never visited a vet in her life, so she has just been given her very first vaccinations. She handled the trip to the vet with great courage and charmed everyone there. She needs to be spayed and have a very badly infected canine tooth removed. She was heartworm and Lyme free (YAY!), but had a very bad case of fleas. (BOO! ICK ICK!) Two doses of Frontline seems to have done in the bugs, and everyone in our house has been dosed. I spent the last two nighs dreaming of creepy crawlies!!
Penny is fine with kids and cats, but is learning to not be afraid of our three dogs. She is protective of her dog bed and likes to growl a little when Rosie walks by. She is told SH! and she stops. I hope part of her 'tude is due to not feeling well and change in circumstance. She's a little overwhelmed!
Penny can meet potential adopters, but must stay in foster care until she's spayed and recovered.
We are looking forward to posting her "after" Extreme Makeover photos. She will be getting a spa treatment this weekend after the Frontline finishes it's job!
