LueLue's mom died leaving her with the boyfriend. He was unable to care for her after she developed a life-threatening illness (pyometra). She also had a skin infection. She was taken to our vet and when it was determined that she needed immediate surgery, he agreed to surrender her to Dr. M. He informed the vet that he really didn't want her. Dr.'s M & M decided that they were going to save her and re-home her. Rainbow received a call asking if she could be a Rainbow dog. They offered to cover the cost of all of her veterinary care (which we greatly appreciated). She had been boarded at the hospital until we finally found a very caring foster. She is now in a home and learning to be a family member. We also discovered that she was kept mostly outside with not much interaction with others. She was cat tested and didn't seem too interested so we think that she could learn to live with a cat. There were children at the previous home and stated that she was fine with children. We think she needs a home with older children as she is VERY energetic. She seems to be fine with other dogs which we will further determine when she starts her manners classes. She loves to run and play. She needs a family who will be patient and loving and is willing to continue her training so she can become the sweet dog that she is capable of.
