Sandy is a very sweet and friendly Chihuahua mix female who came into an overcrowded rural county dog shelter with infections in both eyes. The shelter she came from thought she was about 5 years-old but our vet puts her closer to 2. She was diagnosed with chronic dry eye so came to Canine Lifeline so she would get the medication that she needs. Sandy was on Optimmune for about 6 weeks but that didn’t solve her eye issues. She’s now on Tacrolimus 2-3 times daily to see if that can restore tear production. If that doesn’t work, she will need to be given lubricating eye drops about 4 times per day to keep her eyes comfortable. Sandy is a real trooper about taking her eye drops and never complains. She loves being around people and would enjoy being the only dog in your life so she could get all the attention she likely never had in her life. She would love to have a lap to call her very own. Sandy has excellent crate manners and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. She weighs about 9 pounds and her adoption fee is $125 since she will need ongoing treatment for her eyes. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week trial period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in Sandy. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. All of our dogs come to us from county dog pounds so we have no history on them. We also have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 4-5 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 24-48 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there. Please visit our website at www.caninelifeline.org to see more photos of Sandy and to submit an online application.
