Nell needs a one level foster or adopting home where she will be safe in the house and in the yard. This is a picture of Nell from this past Saturday. She’s definitely up and she’s moving around much easier than when she first arrived. She was found as a stray by the Salt Lake County shelter who called us to get her. She will get c…leaned up by the best groomer on earth…Julene Mathews, on Friday evening.
Nell really seems to be perking up all the way around. She’s been on her meds as prescribed, finished her antibiotics last Wednesday, she has a good appetite, but doesn’t give me any trouble over the diet restrictions I have her on. (Nell came in very overweight at 92lbs!). I’ve yet to hear her bark, she gets along with my other dogs and doesn’t bother the cat.
She would be just fine here but since falling down the stairs Saturday, which I have now blocked off, she’s fallen into a window well and off the porch this morning. When these things happen, she becomes very distressed – almost like a person having a panic attack. I feel so bad for her. She get’s easily confused and disoriented and just….falls. She’s like someone who’s been ill for many, many months and trying to remember and relearn everything. I can tell she wants so badly to be with me and the other dogs when it’s “social time” but she just cant manage the stairs.
During the day, she’s in the house and she goes out with the other dogs twice daily. I’ve had to bring her back in within about 10 min., where the other dogs can stay out for 30 min – an hour. I can tell she wants to be out there but I’m afraid what she’ll get caught up in next and I’m very afraid of her getting injured when I’m not home.
If anyone can help us find this girl a long term foster home or adopting home that can provide single level living, please contact me. Thanks for any leads!
