I am already spayed, purebred, and up to date with shots.
LATEST UPDATE: CINDERELLA'S MAMMARY TUMOR WAS FOUND TO BE MALIGNANT, BUT DEEMED TO BE SO LOW GRADE THAT IT HAS ONLY A 1% CHANGE OF RECURRING. MOREOVER, THE LARGE TUMOR ON HER SPLEEN WAS FOUND TO BE COMPLETELY BENIGN! DESPITE ALL THIS GOOD NEWS, WE HAVE UNFORTUNATELY DISCOVERED THAT CINDERELLA HAS A HIGHLY RESISTANT FORM OF STAPH INFECTION IN BOTH EARS, FOR WHICH SHE IS BEING TREATED WITH A NEW POTENT ANTIBIOTIC. SHOULD THIS TREATMENT PROVE UNSUCCESSFUL, CINDERELLA WILL BE A CANDIDATE FOR EAR SURGERY. PLEASE KEEP CINDERS IN YOUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS AS WE STRIVE FOR HER RECOVERY!
UPDATE: A BIG THANK YOU TO DALE AND FAMILY OF WANTAUGH, NY, FOR OFFERING CINDERELLA A SAFE AND LOVING FOSTER HOME ... DALE IS CINDERELLA'S ORIGINAL 'FINDER' ... HAPPILY, THEY HAVE NOW BEEN REUNITED!
Cinderella ('Cinders') is a very beautiful tri-color female Cocker Spaniel roughly 7-8 years old. She is a stunning black and white girl with tan markings just above her eyes. Cinders was recently found early one morning lying amidst debris on a construction site in Brooklyn. She was very thin and obviously thirsty in the August heat. The project manager immediately provided her with water and ran to buy food for her, then awaited the arrival of Animal Control. From there, Cinders made her way to the Brooklyn Shelter, where she was found to have severely infected ears and to be in generally poor condition. As a result, she was deemed suitable as a rescue candidate only. Cinders' ears are now being treated with a potent antibiotic, to which they appear to be responding, and she has put on some much needed weight. At the time of her spay, Cinders was discovered to have a mammary tumor on her chest as well as a baseball-sized tumor on her spleen (as a consequence, the entire spleen was removed). We are awaiting the results of her biopsy and will shortly be posting additional information. Needless to say, this angel of a dog has been through it all! Despite all her woes, Cinders has shown no aggression towards her handlers, instead proving a consistently sweet girl. She is obviously very relieved to be safe and has proven to be very trusting of everyone who has stepped up to help her. Cinders is now current on all of her shots, has been microchipped, tested negative for heartworm, and treated to a dental. She will be professionally groomed before adoption and will go home with a new leash and collar. Cinders is a prime example of a dog who has risen from the ashes to reclaim many years of life ahead. She will make a loyal and loving companion to whoever is lucky enough to become her next owner. If you would like to adopt Cinders, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and request an application. Cinders is sure to warm your soul and to light a fire in your heart.
