Ida has been with us for about a year now. We got her from ACS here in San Antonio. When Ida's foster picked her up, her eye was so damaged it was literally hanging out of the socket. Ida was very aggressive and had every right to be. We will never know what happened to her, but we know she will carry it with her forever. Ida had to be burritoed into a blanket just to be picked up and rushed to surgery to remove her eye. Blood work confirmed that she was also high heartworm positive. After months of healing, inside and out, we put Ida up for adoption. She is not an easy dog, and this will not be an easy adoption. Ida does well with other dogs once she gets to know them. She is still hesitant with strangers picking her up and will not come to just anyone. Ida has bonded very much with her foster over this past year, but her foster is moving out of state and we need to find Ida a home of her own with no children. Ida's person must be patient, kind, and loving. Ida needs a home that is quiet and peaceful. Her home must have a securely fenced backyard, as Ida will not walk on leash and harness. With some treats and some time, she will eventually become your friend and stay forever faithful and loving. She will be a one human kind of dog but will share her attention once she gets to know someone. Full disclosure: Ida will bite. Once she warms up to someone though, she will be your shadow, your lap buddy, and your companion and will trust you always. Going to the vet is not a fun task. Ida HATES the vet and will always need to get her nails done at a vet's office because of her fear-based aggression. We are truly hoping for a miracle and that Ida's perfect person is out there.
