About Ammy’s rescue:

A desperate FB message calling for help to a stray dog caught the attention of the rescuer: a small dog was beaten and chased around in the neighborhood. The rescuer picked up the battered dog (Ammy) and rushed her to animal hospital.

While being treated in the hospital, Ammy started a bad diarrhea and vomiting. The vet did not think it is a good sign and warned the rescuer to prepare for the worst case scenarios. Little Ammy lying in the cage, even though very frail, wagged her tail to tell everyone around not to give up on her.

The rescuer decided to do a complete lab works on Ammy. It turned out Ammy suffered severe anemia, her symptoms was caused by high white blood cell count. In the meantime, an x-ray showed her right front leg had been impaired before but already healed, so no surgery needed. The vet concluded that it’s not going to affect her mobility and normal functions. Ammy regained her health after treatment in the hospital for a month or so.

Ammy is a healthy, active, and playful young pup. She is such a brave survivor! This beautiful, loving girl deserves a loving family that will treasure her and give her a happy and safe dog life! Please give her a chance to bring lots of joys and unconditional love to your family!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ammy, a San Mateo Kishu/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Kishu/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in San Mateo, or seeking a Kishu/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog from a breeder in San Mateo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Mateo already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a San Mateo breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Kishu/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with Kishu/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Mateo paves the way for another one to be saved.
