Here is my first VIDEO of BHRR's Autumn, very shortly after I arrived home with her today.
Per the video, you will hear me talk about her eyes, her ears – vision and hearing possible problems, possible FAD, food and/or seasonal allergies, that her body condition is between 2/2.5 max., that she has infections, hair loss and she could well have possible demodectic mange(do not supsect sarcoptic at this time) and we will do skin scrapings. She has rub marks on her tail and various parts of her body like from being confined in an area too small for her, long nails and with her being so worried right now, I have not yet looked at her teeth and inside her mouth. AND she has had at least one litter in her very young life…. 🙁 Her poor body. 🙁
She is settling in well, is very sweet, bonds fast and she absolutely LOVES my daughter Kinsley.
She wants to be in the house all the time, is nervous about being left outside and her leash manners are really quite good. She will follow me everywhere and she is working on her crate training and after only a small moment the very first time, she walks in without any problems. She has a stubborn streak. She showed that to me very well and YAY! FOR that is one reason why she has survived for as long as she has…that backbone of steel that these dogs that are emaciated, neglected and terribly emotionally and physically not done right by those that should have treated them with respect and love, is what makes these dogs such survivors!
She has drank some, had a good sized pee and has eaten a tiny bit. I am offering her food every 3-4 hours for she is in really bad shape. 🙁 Her tummy and digestive system will need to get used to having nourishment, the proper kind.
She has the potential for bad SA and so the crate training is doing a most wonderful thing for that so that she can learn that her own company is good and ok and her crate is right near where my main computer is and other than some small whines earlier today as she was worried that she would be left alone, she is fast learning that she is not going to be forgotten about and gosh, my heart is just throbbing for love for her!
Will update her blog after her vet visit…..
BHRR's Autumn really needs some extra warmth and kindness to come her way…….I shall have a file set-up for her at Kanata Animal Hospital as of Monday October 15th in the afternoon. I will be bringing her to work with me tomorrow. I had hoped to give her a couple of days to settle in upon arrival, yet, she is in a very bad neglected state. VERY bad….
Kanata Animal Hospital (613) 836-2848 and they will take Visa, M/C and AMEX over the phone under the account of 'Birch Haven Rescue' for 'Autumn'. They will take Debit or Cash in person at 440 Hazeldean Road in Kanata, Ontario
