Update: Hi guys... well I brought her home from the vets and I am so sad I had to take her to the kennel. She is a really good dog. She is very quiet and just wants to hang out with you. She is a happy dog but it broke my heart because you can see the worry or maybe sadness in her eyes.... I just feel like she is missing her human. Oh my heart breaks for her.
Anyway other then then that.. her bloodwork was fine. She is just obese like me! Seriously though the weight has to come off, we can not spay her until she looses 20-30lbs. Her breathing is definately labored with minimal activity. (me too) I picked her up at the vets and overnighted her. I spent most of the night with her but I did have to give her some alone time even though I didn't want to!!! I set her up in my basement. I put a baby-gate at the top of the steps, a large piece of plywood behind it propped up with a little table just in case she got spunky. She was fine. I put a blankie on the floor for her and she plopped right on it. While I did laundry she hung out with me. I tossed a ball and she was not really interested. She was not interested in eating dog food... but I did sneak and give her some of my breakfast this morning. We are both starting our diets "tomorrow".
My heart absolutely breaks for this dog. She was definately someone's pet and I just can't imagine how she ended up on the streets and why no one claimed her. She has no callusses, her teeth are pretty clean, her pads are not even that rough. She had no accidents in the house. She was quiet as a mouse, I just had nothing bad to say about her. I handled her everywhere, no problems with her food, and she takes treats gently. She layed down and I gave her a rub down and she would just sigh from time to time. I felt so bad this morning it killed me. We got up early and I took her for a walk then loaded her up to take to the kennel. Thanks to the people that chipped in. Her first week is paid up and her food.
If I was not in the process of packing up my house to move I would seriously foster her. Pics being posted in the gallery... probably will just continue on someone else's thread.
