Isabel's blood work tests result show that she was anemic, has low platelets and low protein. She is also light HW pos. So we started Isabel on steroids and antibiotics to help her condition and also started to treat the HW. Medication seems to be working. She is more alert, has great appetite and is gaining weight. She is soon to be free and clear of all health issues, except that her foot is a bit deformed from the old injury and she'll always be deaf. But that is part of her character.
Isabel is a very sweet girl and loves getting attention. She hasn't had any training prior to coming to rescue, but is now learning some commands. Whoever adopts Isabel will have to go to special training to learn how to communicate with a deaf dog. Isabel does well in a crate and she walks well on a leash. She gets along with other big dogs, but she does have some prey drive, so she can't go to a home with small dogs or cats.
Isabel is now with White Kisses Great Dane rescue, because they specialize in deaf dogs. She's been spayed, current on all vaccinations and microchipped.
If interested in giving Isabel a good home, please contact White Kisses Great Dane rescue at: firstname.lastname@example.org website: http://www.whitekissesgreatdanerescue.com/home.html
