Sandy belonged to an elderly local gentleman for the past 5 yrs. She is now 10yrs. old! She is the sweetest couch potato you have ever met. She and her owner would spend all day watching TV and eating snacks. He originally adopted her from a shelter 5 yrs. ago and was told that she was spayed. The elderly gentleman was no longer able to take care of himself and was moved into a nursing home. Family members took Sandy to a shelter in hopes that she would find a home and if not they wanted to be called. Sandy was put in the shelter with a unneutered JRT mix and they got along GREAT with each other. Sandy would cuddle up with him and use him like a pillow. Sandy's time was up at the shelter so the elderly man's daughter picked Sandy up from the shelter and brought her home. She noticed that Sandy looked bloated and decided to take her to the veterinarian. The vet told them that she was overweight and possibly pregnant since he could not find a spay scar. The daughter decided the stress of taking care of her kids, work, her father and now a dog was too much and decided to bring her to the adoption center to find a home. Sandy was checked by Dr. Steve of The Affordable Spay Neuter Clinic and Pet Care and he could not see any puppies in the x-ray but she is very overweight so it was hard to palpate pups. Dr. Steve put her on a healthy diet with instructions not to overfeed her. He rechecked her 2 weeks later and still no sign of pups in the x-ray. She will be having a blood test to determine if she was indeed spayed all along. If not she will be scheduled for a spay as soon as she has lost some weight so that she can safely be spayed at her age. Sandy looks to have suffered some type of injury to the left side of her face a long time ago. There will be NO ADOPTION FEE for Sandy to the right home but DONATIONS for her medical care would be greatly appreciated!
