Sweet Dorothy came to us as a stray in terrible condition, she was suffering with skin sores and hair loss & sore infected ears.
We were able to help Dorothy following her time as a stray, and we have been rehabilitating her back to good health and getting to know her at the Shelter and she is now ready to start looking for her new home.
Dorothy is currently having some short -term medicated baths every couple of days, to help with her missing some fur and to aid her sores to continue healing, her fur may take many months of years to full grow back, she does enjoy her cosy jumpers however, and is comfortable wearing them daily at the moment.
Dorothy is a sweetheart, she is affectionate and adores people despite her recent hard time she is very resilient.
Dorothy is looking for a loving family home, where she can rest her paws and continue getting back to full health, although she doesn’t have any pre-existing medical conditions, her skin may take time to be completely back to normally so its important her new family keep on top of her grooming, and ensure she always has good quality flea treatment and a good quality diet. Dorothy loves company, and will be a very loyal companion she is a sweetheart. Dorothy enjoys her walks with other dogs at the shelter, and needs to continue meeting up with local dog friends so her social skills are kept up to scratch! However we do believe she would prefer to be the dog in her new home, so she can get all the 1-1 Tender loving care she deserves. Dorothy will need her new family to be patient and understanding when settling in, with her housetraining, but we are sure in no time she will pick this back up again. Can you offer this beautiful girl her forever home?
