Bette is a very sweet girl. She is well-mannered, knows the commands "Sit," "Down," "Stay" and "Shake" and she walks well with her harness. One unique thing about her is that her left eye is partially blue.
Bette does have unpredictable dog aggression, so she needs to be the only dog in the house. She does have a history of going after other dogs, with the last instance being in April. Her former owner did state that a training collar used had no impact on her pulling if there is another dog around. Bette is not known to chew on anything that isn't a toy and doesn't have food or territory issues.
Bette is current on all vaccinations, micro chipped and spayed. She will need to continue having eye drops in her eyes to treat dry eye, and she will also require two ointments to be applied three times a day moving forward. Due to her eye issues, she may have some partial vision loss. She also is on joint supplements for a luxating patella in her left leg, but she has not had any trouble with it since coming in to rescue.
Bette is a joy at home, and she can be a very high energy girl when playing with her squeaky toys and chewing on her bones. She gets along with humans, but little Miss Attitude has gotten into a fight with the neighbor’s dog. She HAS to have a home with no other dogs, as she has unpredictable dog aggression issues. A fenced yard would be good too, to help avoid any trouble with other dogs. Her foster mom does not take her anywhere that she knows there will be other dogs to try and control the issue. She is also very careful on walks and so far has not had any additional problems. While she doesn’t get along with other dogs, she is a very sweet girl that gets along with every human she meets... Bette is ready for her furever home, and she is waiting for you!
Meet Miss Molly! - Thank you to Molly's sponsor's Josh and Mack Haferd, Brandy Coomes, Tammy Miller (In memory of Tank and Spanky), Bonnie Verhoff (In honor of George), Beth King, Greg Newlin, Andrew Marcinko, and Kathy Turza!
Molly is a 7 month old bulldog with some serious, congenital orthopedic problems with her back legs. She has grade IV/IV luxating knee cap on her right knee which has caused her femur bone to curve. Molly is not a normal, active puppy. She sits a lot and will pivot or drag her back end to get where she wants to go. She cannot jump.
Molly saw an orthopedic veterinarian this week. We strongly believe that surgery is the only option for her. They will have to cut her femur bone and straighten it with a plate and screws then deepen the groove so that her knee cap stays in place.
If we do not do surgery she will have chronic pain, early-onset arthritis and lose muscle and then probably rupture her ACL. It will also put more strain on her hips as well-which are already dysplastic. This will be a long treatment plan for her. This surgery will be her first but possibly not her last. Unfortunately her left knee is a grade III/IV also.
Molly is the sweetest girl
ever and just wants to have the ability to move!
Please sponsor Molly! Her new knee is going to cost $4000! We need big sponsors. We need small sponsors. We need whatever you can spare!
