This 3.5 year old female Boxer Pit mix was a stray in San Bernadino who ended up at high-kill Devore animal shelter. She was put on the euthanasia list when she came down with kennel cough, so we pulled her... back in September! She was not spayed due to her upper respiratory infection and when she arrived we quickly saw she was ... SURPRISE!!! Pregnant. VERY! After giving birth she ended up with a very serious infection which required separating her from pups so she could get the veterinary care she needed. This was likely traumatic for her and may explain some of her separation anxiety and excited behavior around other dogs. We are eager to find Brigid a wonderful home to call her own. She has been through a lot so she will need a patient loving and supportive family. Here is what we know about Brigid: She is a happy, playful cuddle bug. She loves attention and people and wants to be with her people all the time. She plays well and cuddles well with other dogs after proper introduction She gets excited on a leash when she sees other dogs -- we have found that a gentle leader allows her to be managed. She had pretty bad separation anxiety which has improved considerably with medication. With 'practice' she can now be crated safely for about 6 hours, huge progress! She happily sleeps on a dog bed out of crate near people through the night Absolutely wonderful snuggler Still needs basic obedience training to improve basic commands, leash walking, etc. She is house-trained if you can take her out regularly (every 4-5 hours except during the night) Adoption Info: Brigid's adoption fee of $350 includes her spay, all vaccinations (Rabies, DPPV, Bordetella) deworming, microchipping and transport from California to Seattle. Brigid's actual veterinary costs have far exceeded her adoption fee and any donations to her care are greatly appreciated.
