Contessa was one of 19 dogs taken from a hoarder and dropped into a high kill WV pound.   Contessa was basically hairless when arrived.   Was diagnosed with Cushings and is being treated and looks awesome!  just look at her photos...!!!! Her Cushings meds is not high dosage. She takes a pill every other day. Foster mom puts them in 1/2 a pill pocket and Contessa's eyes light up. She thinks they are just wonderful treats. A box of the cushings meds cost about $60.00 which lasts her 2 months. She also has borderline dry eye. SHe only needs a drop each morning in the one eye. So a bottle lasts about 2 months. Lastly she has a heart murmer. She is a go with the flow little girl. She likes all dogs and cats, She is good with people and kids that are calm. She loves to wear clothes. Makes her feel like a Princess. She will go outside in snow or rain to potty, she is a little trooper.  She is very calm and very good. She would love more than anything to have a home of her own. 
One picture is when she first arrived at the shelter.
