CROSSPOSTING ONLY …. PLEASE CONTACT Kathy Cole at [email protected] for more info.
She a F/S, 5 year-old GSD. On August 9th 2007, she was updated on Bordetella, had a 3 year DHPP and a fecal. Also had a heartworm test that was negative. Is on flea, tick and heartworm preventative. Her 10 rabies quarantine is up tomorrow (Sunday) I know the owner would hold off as long as she could to try to place her in a good home. I don't know how long she could pay to board her. She should be the only dog and the new owner should use caution around other dogs. I think she would make a great ladies dog. Duchess has been around the owner and her 2 daughters since she was 10 weeks old. She seems to be protective of the owner (my thoughts only) I can fax you the history on her and I am sure the owner would talk to you about her. I would say the level of urgency is very high.
From what I understand, the owner's husband will not let her bring Duchess home. Owner would not take her to animal control. She has also been e-mailing friends and family to try to find her another home. I am not sure if the neighbor's have anything to do with that decision or not.
Here are a couple of photos of Duchess the GSD I e-mailed you about. I spoke to her owner about what happened. She said that Duchess was in her yard, they have an invisible fence. The next door neighbor's son let their dog out off leash and she ran into their yard. Duchess grabbed the smaller dog. The dog was taken to CVS and is recovering as far as the owner knows. Duchess did not bite the owner, the smaller dog did. She weights 75 pounds, is 5 years old. Up to date on all vaccines and is on flea and heartworm medicine. Loves children and has been with this family since she was 10 weeks old. She is black and tan. I have a copy of her medical history, if anyone is interested. She is at Grace Animal Hospital. They can call me at 704-616-4743. Thanks Sue with any help you can give Duchess. Kathy Cole
