BHRR's Jetta went to the Vet on Wednesday June 13th and her new weight was 99.88 pounds(45.4 KGs). She has put on almost 15 pounds since her arrival. So, people can well imagine JUST how thin she was upon arrival. 🙁

The Vet LOVED how responsive she was to her obedience commands! BHRR's Jetta has learned sit, down, stay, gentle and so much more since her arrival. She is so attentive to people and if you have treats, even more so…. 😉 Her leash manners are coming along very well.

She is beginning to really blow off all that old brown and dull coat now that she is on great nutrition at BHRR. You can see just how shiny and healthy it is becoming. PUS soft! Her ears are heaven. 🙂 Still some dander coming off and I am still washing her here and there(not too much) with an oatmeal based shampoo.

She received her DAPP booster and Rabies plus we did a HWT.

The Vet says that all those wee bumpies on the top of her head is puppy acne. WHO knew!

We did do a skin scraping to be sure that she was not having any demodectic mange issues and no mites present that would indicate such.

Her hair is even beginning to grow back on her belly and her tail injury is also healing well.

Once she puts on another 15-20 pounds, she shall be ready for adoption.

She is a very nice dog! VERY nice! She is my new 'social spazz' just as BHRR's Journey became. The Vet loved that term! LOL

She was so social to all dogs and people and even had no issues with Jackson the Cat at KAH. 🙂
