We rescued Trixie and her puppies in February of 2015. Soon after rescue, Trixie went into congestive heart failure from terrible heartworms. We got her through that and treated her for heartworms. She was then able to be spayed. We have weened her off 4 of her 5 medications b/c her heart is healing and strong but she is still on one medication to regulate her blood pressure. We can't get her off this b/c of her constant stress level.
There is nothing to be worried about if you foster Trixie. She is healthy and happy and very playful. If she gets really excited or stressed out she will cough but that is it. No regulation of activity or anything like that. She can run, play, hike, etc.
Please consider opening your home to Trixie. She has lost 6 lbs in the last few months due to stress. SHE NEEDS YOU! We supply the crate, toys, meds, vet care and you supply the food and love.
All dogs are fully vaccinated, microchipped, spayed/neutered and Heartworm negative unless otherwise noted. We require an adoption application, home visit and adoption fee of $200 ($150 for senior). You also get a two week trial period with all of our dogs. To apply, simply go to www.forgottenpaws.com.
Many of our dogs are in foster homes all over Atlanta, thus an application is required before an appointment can be set to meet a dog.
