Love, Jeremy and Liz Brantner and our 8 year old golden, Ramsey. We are thinking of this sweet girl and wishing her a fast recovery
Jeanine Greenbank, in memory of my Golden, Roy
This sweetest girl Ivy came to us from a shelter--she had been found by a Good Samaritan on the side of the road.
Poor thing struggled at the shelter, couldn't stand at all...thus she had severe urine burns and had to be shaved down. She has been exhausted and slept a lot there--probably been on the road by herself for a while. She was carried to our transporter’s car, and there she kept her head up and smiled the entire trip!! She must have sensed her life is on the upswing--plus our trusty, loving volunteer driver talks and is reassuring to her rescued charges. She made sure Ivy was swaddled in blankets.
Our vet partner feels she is a good girl, food motivated and friendly. She is overweight, likely from a thyroid problem. Ivy also has a few lumps that our vet doesn’t recommend removing...and she also feels Ivy is a hospice dog. We’ll get her into a loving foster home where she can enjoy the rest of her life. Stay tuned for updates.
Foster Update: 6/17/19
Ivy is doing well in her foster home and improving. Initially her foster family tried to make her a spot where she did not have to do stairs to go outside, but Ivy is very particular about doing her business in the grass, so she now is doing 4 steps into the house with a ramp. She does not need to be crated. Ivy came down with kennel cough & was not eating well, but is now eating as well as improved mobility. Her foster family uses a sling to assist her with standing. She has a therapeutic bed for her to lie on. Ivy is a spunky girl & loves to be outside smelling all the smells. If she doesn't want to come back inside right away, she lets her foster parents know! She is house trained & does well with the resident dogs & cats.
