From Tink's foster mom, on today's vet visit: Tink is doing much better. Her skin is healing well and her cough is minimal. She's improving everyday. She has fleas, skin allergies, and an infection, but she did really well at the vet but was so happy to come home ***************************************************** Thanks to an angel called Michele, Miss Tinkerbell is now safe and cared for in a loving foster home. She was a little nervous at first, but is starting to realize that things are going to be so much better for her from now on! Shelter Notes: A volunteer writes: One look at Tinkerbell when she first arrived and it was obvious that she’d recently had puppies that were maybe separated from her too soon. And she seemed to know it, too. She could be very anxious at times: crawling under the bench or getting creative about places to seek solace when I take her in the yard, pawing at the ground as if trying to nest or dig her way out, and even whining and howling during playgroup. What might not be so obvious from one look is how utterly SWEET she is (although I think there’s something about her eyes that gives it away!). She pulls to get outside, but walks nicely on leash once we get there. She seems to have housetraining, hasn’t been interested in my treats, and when I give her plushy toys she takes them and lies down with them. She is very waggy even when she’s whining and shows hints of being very playful. She seems to be getting less anxious by the day and absolutely finds comfort in the company of people (and it seems every stranger is a friend!). If I sit down on the ground she’s quick to nuzzle the entire weight of her head against me or crawl into my lap…she is so, so cuddly! She’ll prop her paws on me as if to celebrate our togetherness, then bounce away, she flops over for belly rub when she brings the ball back, and she always makes the softest eye contact (and gives the best kisses!). I don’t know how Tinkerbell came to be here, or where her babies are, but I do know she deserves the best home over! She is such a sweetheart!! Please come meet her at the Brooklyn ACC.
09/22/2016 WEB MEMO A volunteer writes: I just love Tinkerbell! And she really does remind me of Tinkerbell from Peter Pan, bringing love and energy and sparkle everywhere she goes. Tinkerbell is a sweet mama who looks like shes been a mother in the past. Tinkerbell is very sweet and affectionate– loves to greet everyone she passes and will shower them with kisses if they let her. Although it’s clear she’s very kind and nurturing, it’s time to give Tinkerbell a rest from puppies– she needs an adopter to take her home and giver her a chance to be pampered herself for a change. 🙂 Tinkerbell is still a little bit shy with other dogs, but that’s nothing a bit of patient introduction and exposure won’t help. Please come and see this loving lady today.
