found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Whitney is a beautiful Black and Tan, cropped and docked dobergirl who has recently come into our rescue because her family could not afford a desperately needed surgery for her. She is currently in foster and this is what her foster mom wants you to know about this wonderful girl....
This is my foster girl, Whitney. She has just come to stay with me, moved into my crazy household seamlessly, and I adore her already.
Whitney is a chip off the old block. Of course, we’re both super sweet and good lookin’, even if Whitney is waaaaaay cuter than I am. But sadly for us we have more in common than that. Whitney has a long history of hip problems, too. Because she was born with a deformity in her hip joint, she has been in excruciating pain for her entire life, about five years. Anyone who has ever felt this pain would grant that Whitney would be perfectly justified in snapping and snarling and generally hating the world, but this sweet dog holds no grudges. She loves everyone and everything. She is a darling who has tolerated what the world has dished out for her beautifully well. Even toenail clips don’t ruffle her feathers; I believe she is the first dog I have ever seen who got sleepy and leaned into the groomer to take a nap while getting her nails clipped. Nevertheless, Whitney is in severe pain and she cries out when trying to stand, or when moving on her bed, and her gate tells the tragic story of a dog who has waited for far too long for someone to help her.
Whitney urgently needs hip surgery to remove the deformed ball joint of her left rear hip. The surgery will give her a normal life where she can run and play, (which she tries to do now without success), and be the best ambassador for this amazing and misunderstood breed. Whitney gets along with big dogs and small, birds, and both indoor and outdoor cats. She has lived with children of all ages and loves them all, too. After her recuperation she will be ready for adoption to a very lucky person or family.
