I am micro-chipped, am heart-worm Negative, have all my vaccinations, been spayed and had an extensive dental to keep me healthy. I will be evaluated for 2 weeks by my foster family who have gone through SRC's approval process. My foster family is located in Wilson, NC. Thus far although I am a little shy, I am very sweet and cuddly to anyone that is nice to me.
SRC#1813 GRACIE's Story
GRACIE with this unique identification number: (SRC#1813) just came into our custody and care. Now vetted this dog will be prepared for adoption by a foster family who has gone thru our approval process . She has been transferred to Charlotte, NC and is settling in with her foster mom now.
A lovely 6 - 7 yoa lady, Gracie (1813) is an 8-pound solid white Poodle who is not at all bashful once she gets to know you. She thrives on being touched and held and soaks it up like a sponge. You would think that she had been someone’s treasured baby for all her years of life yet she came to SRC in need of a spay and with Grade 4 Dental Disease. This is exactly what her medical record says:” Teeth: Normal Dental Disease - Grade 4 Grade IV dental disease is the most severe; these teeth have significant inflammation and swelling of the gums. They also have developed receding gum lines and bone loss around the teeth. In addition, there will be a pus-like discharge and the teeth will be unstable (loose). With Grade III and Grade IV teeth, we can evaluate the degree of boney destruction. If the tooth is still stable, we can help it by cleaning, but if the tooth is loose, it will likely need to be extracted to avoid the pain associated with the dental decay.” Gracie already feels much better because she is on pain meds and a strong antibiotic and in a few days she should be healed. This girl has so much to give a loving family and now she can do it without pain and horrible breath!
When ready for adoption this dog will be heart-worm tested (negative), vaccinations brought up to date, spayed if not done already, micro-chipped, examined fully by a vet and any necessary medical issues found by this vet will have been addressed. It is anticipated that this dog will be released for adoption by the same date as the completion of the Evaluation. The date of release is left to the discretion of the SRC Core Team.
