Poor girl was found as a stray in Hazard, KY. We don't know how long she was wondering around, and was very, very thin when she arrived. She had a dental done, and her teeth had very little tarter, but she had a lot of teeth issues. Some were cracked, some were deformed. 14 teeth in all were pulled. Now that Georgia is healthy, what a difference in this sweet girl. She is eating like a champ, loves going for walks, enjoys playing with toys, and is so full of life. She is fabulous with dogs, cats, kids, men, and women. She loves everyone.
Here is a story about how gentle Georgia is: When she arrived she was in a temporary foster under her permanent foster could pick her up who lives on the main walking path to the grade school. Georgia either found a way to get through the fence to get out of the yard and to the kids. We think she is drawn to children and she heard the children walking to the school. We got a call saying the school had her and they were holding her in the office. When we went to pick her up, the staff said she was a huge hit with the children. While the kids were walking to school, they happened to see Georgia, and Georgia happily walked to school with the kids. Her new family will need will need a secure fence to be sure she can't escape.
Please give this sweet girl a home, you won't regret it. She will give you back much unconditional love. We encourage you to fill out our on-line adoption application, which can be found on our website at www.angelsonwheels.org.
Georgia's blood work came back when she first arrived that she's a bit anemic, and her protein level is down. Likely due to her malnutrition. She has had her CBC done several times now and all the levels look good including her T4, which tests thyroid. She arrived into our rescue on September 4th, and will be getting her dental done, and spay on October 14th
October 14th, Georgia had 14 teeth removed, many of which were cracked. Her teeth had little tarter, which usually indicates a younger dog. She was spayed. We re-did her blood work, her Anemia is back to normal levels, but her liver value was slightly elevated. They feel due to her bad teeth and an infection. We will re-do her blood count again mid November, Georgia also had a couple mammary tumors which was removed, and biopsied. Biopsy Negative.
November 4th, Georgia had another surgery to remove some lumps that were missed the first time that they couldn't feel or see in surgery due to some swelling she had. They were removed and biopsied. One of them came back positive for cancer. To be sure they got everything she will have her mammary gland remove as a precaution.
November 25th, Georgia will have her final surgery to remove the mammary gland and one final blood work to be sure all of her levels are stable.
Georgia is being fostered in a home in St. Charles, IL, which is where you and your family would go to meet her.

Although we make the best guess on the breed and size of our dogs, because they come from shelters or are strays, we can never be completely certain of the genetic makeup of the dog. Breed and weight at maturity are only guesses. All we can tell you for sure is that they are 100% RESCUED! If an animal is still posted for adoption, he/she is still available. If you see this post, this puppy is available for adoption so there is no need to email asking about availability.
Thank you for looking at our rescued animals!
