Miss Penelope! 

She weighed 45.3 kgs(99.66 pounds) at EVC – Eagleson Veterinary Clinic – tonight.

She is thin and lacks muscle mass/tone in her hind end, especially on the right side. 

We continued her vetting protocol that we started in Ohio, prior to her arrival. 

She had her ears cleaned, we are also running a wellness panel plus to further test her Positive Lymes result to determine her best course of treatment. Her poor body tells a terrible story of having had so many litters….yet, no more! You get to be the spoiled ‘baby’ now. Your puppymill days are done.

Once she puts on more muscle mass/tone and weight, we will re-visit her ‘off’ gait to see if it is just her, a result of how she was kept her whole life etc. 

Her joint exam was a thumbs up as was her heart and lungs! Her teeth are worn yet her Vet did not feel she required a dental at this time. He felt they were worn from chewing on whatever she was kept in.

Miss Penelope had been shaved prior to us getting her which we can only presume was due to having horrible matts and her professional grooming session with us shall be on August 2nd with Melissa at Groomingdale’s. 

We still await the results of the biopsies on her ovaries. 

She is back in mid August for boosters and a re-visit on her body condition etc. 

This girl is AMAZING! So sweet, loving and despite all she has gone through, seeks out affection from humans…was wonderful with every dog plus puppy she met at EVC too. 

Miss Penelope is going to make a home a WOW addition when she is ready….

A small female Newf that is so gentle and melts your heart!! I deeply enjoyed meeting her…..

As always donations for her continued care can be made direct to Eagleson Veterinary Clinic 613-383-8381

AND gentle reminder, as of Thursday August 1st once Miss Lily arrives(Special Needs GD), our doors shall be closed indefinitely until we can achieve financial health again due to so many expenses, many of them unexpected with dogs we have been asked to assist…..

So, any consideration to our cause would be deeply appreciated so that we can continue to help dogs in need of our highly specialised programs…

Thank you again to Megan for being Miss Penelope’s awesome temp foster Mama! 

From our home to all of our friends, family and supporters, warm good night wishes are being sent!
