BLONDIE – NEVER GIVE UP

Blondie was literally an hour away from being euthanized when a saving angel came to the rescue. Blondie’s hips and back legs were weak and her ‘owner’ was spotted dragging her to the vet’s office. A local woman who had been keeping an eye on Blondie the past year called a taxi and convinced the owner to surrender Blondie to the vet. With the help of Animal Life Savers, Inc., Blondie was given immediate medical attention which included treatment for fleas, anti-inflammatory medication, x-rays on her hips, and all of her vaccinations.

When we met Blondie she was wobbly on her back legs. Blondie has lived outside much of her life and developed sores along her joints. X-rays did confirm that she has hip dysplasia, and possibly some arthritis. Although Blondie won’t be going on any marathons, we are convinced that with soft bedding, combined with anti-inflammatory medication and good nutrition, that she will be able to enjoy her life and become more mobile.

Blondie is now in a foster home, with a soft bed, a loving foster mom, and a small 4 legged friend, who is tolerating the affection Blondie is receiving. Each day we see more and more improvement in Blondie’s stability and energy level. She enjoys being outside and going on a walk. Blondie likes to give out little barks so everyone knows she is around. Then when someone comes up to say his he will lean her head into the person’s hand and ask for a scratch behind the ear.

We believe Blondie is about 8 years old. She has a good appetite, and is trustworthy in a house. Blondie lived with a German Shepherd and appears to be able to co-habitate with other dogs. We don’t know about cats, though any fast cat can easily skedaddle away from Blondie. Her needs are simple, a friendly family, a comfortable bed and love.
