This special girl is Eden. She is between 4 and 5 years of age, and currently weighs around 100 pounds. Eden was just diagnosed with Hypothyroidism, requiring an inexpensive daily medication to manage her condition, which caused her to gain a lot of weight. Currently Eden is very inactive but we are hopeful with her condition now managed, she will enjoy more activity. Due to the thyroid condition, her fur coat is thinner than it would normally be and she is more susceptible to skin infections; with the medication, this should improve as well.
Eden gets along with dogs of all sizes and has been around cats. Eden would do best in an adult household that is on the more quiet side. She does need an adopter who will be dedicated to walking her every day to help her continue to lose weight and feel better. Miss Eden is housebroken and has good home manners. Eden deserves a dedicated owner who will make her a part of their family and life, something she didn't have prior to rescue.
This dog has been examined by a licensed veterinarian, provided inoculations, dewormed, tested for heartworm and other parasitic diseases, plus spayed and microchipped. In addition, complete blood panels have been run. ADOPTION APPLICATIONS are available for electronic completion and submission through A Caring Place's home page - www.acaringplacehs.org
