3/14/18: Sheila, All healthy now ....


1/14/18: Sheila came into the shelter in May, but has just recently been added to SCP.

She is suffering from horrible itching; she has a couple different skin infections that are being treated by a skin specialist (thanks to scp).

Sheila is a complicated girl, not very trusting of people and less trusting of women.

We'll be adding more about Sheila from her foster family.

10/11/2017 - Feeling Frisky & Anxiety Free


1/14/18: Snowball had a pretty severe ear infection which may have temporarily affected his hearing; now that the infection is better, his hearing has also improved.

Snowball will see the vet as a follow up to make sure he is back to 100%.

He will also be getting groomed; toy breeds thrive with tender loving care.

10/8/17: From his foster Mom: I was waiting to send an update on the little guy after he saw the vet this week. He was neutered last Wednesday, and I asked them to really explore his ears as he is deaf. They found pus pockets under his eardrums and is on a long course of antibiotics. Hopefully, some of his hearing will come back. I had them check his ears every time but guess the infection was too deep to see on a regular exam. He has been in pain and had 2 more seizures, so he is on a maintenance dose of PhenoBarb which will probably be a lifetime. He also suffers from separation anxiety. He does not destroy things, but barks and howls nonstop when I am gone and needs to have me in view at all times. Other, than that, he is perfect.

He is feeling a little better and actually played some with my Scottie. There is hope for improvement. I would like to get one of the storm vests to put on him when I am gone to see if it will help calm his anxiety. I haven't had anyone reach out to me for him and West Highland Rescue never contacted me. He is demanding when he wants something, especially food. During the day, he is in a 10x10 pen with many many comforts, so he is safe and can't run off. My Scottie is with him but he just can't be consoled when I am gone.

He goes back to the vet in 2 weeks to explore his ears again under brief anesthesia.

9/21/17: This little guy’s heart was shattered when he was taken to the shelter by his owners because they moved. As his foster mom, I was able to get him to eat, play, and start trusting again, but he has a ways to go. When adopted, he will need much patience until he can adjust. He is definitely a one-on-one boy and would greatly benefit from a stay at home parent with a large area to run and feel free. He cannot be crated or confined. He is totally house-broken, has great manners, and is perfect on a leash. He is fine with other dogs and cats, but does not interact as he is quite submissive. He has learned to play with toys by himself and has a good time.

“Snowy” was so traumatized from the change that he did have seizures. He is currently on medication and working through a trial medical plan to see if he has a diagnosis of epilepsy or if the seizures were only due to stress. This will be determined, but it is a strong possibility he will require life-time medications and routine vet visits. In addition, a potential adopter needs to know he will also need grooming because of his breed. The rewards of this lush sweet boy will far outweigh any extras efforts required. He is a dream. Serious calls only, please.

9/16/17: No dates yet, but Snowball has been accepted into Westie Rescue, Southeast!

9/4/17: Snowball is only 1 year old. He came in as an owner surrender, they said they were moving and could not take the dog.

They did not mention the dog had seizures, but Snowball had two seizures the first night with his foster mom. The vet at MCAH did blood work that came back normal; so it may possibly be epilepsy. The vet gave him medication and will recheck his bloodwork in 2-3weeks.
