11/07/10: Jade Is A Lover
Jade continues to thrive and is a happy go lucky puppy. Below is the latest update from her foster mom:
“Jade is about 7 months old now and is becoming such a big girl. She still has tons of energy; all she wants to do is play, play, play! She is always wiggling, so much so that we have started calling her “Wiggles”.
She is a lover and loves to lay right by our side whenever she finishes playing. She has also become accustomed to sleeping in bed with us and laying on the sofa.
Jade is a very curious little girl, so a huge selection of toys are a must. If left alone, she WILL chew something up that she shouldn't. She is still very much a puppy and will need someone who is patient and home a majority of the day.
She is now house trained and does well in the crate. She gets along great with our other 4 dogs. She does play a bit rough, so it is imperative that any other dog would tolerate her energy.
Jade is going to make someone a very happy Mama & Papa one day!!!”
08/04/10: Lucky Jade
Jade has made a remarkable recovery since her accident ingesting Rat Poison. After her stay at the hospital she had to be watched closely by her foster parents. Part of the recovery process was for her to take Vitamin K for a 30 day period 2 times a day. Luckily there were no incidents. She returned to the doctor for follow up blood-work on June 26th to test her levels and ability to clot. Thankfully everything came back perfect. We are also happy to report that there will be no lasting bad effects from this close call with death. She will be available to be placed in a permanent home soon after she is spayed.
Below is an update from Jade's foster mom:
"Jade is a very active (mischievous) puppy who loves to play and does fantastic with my other 4 boxers (2 boys & 2 girls). I think she would do best in a home with another dog.
When Jade has to be left alone she does OK in the crate, but since she likes to chew it is imperative that there isn't any bedding in the crate with her. A Kong with a little kong stuffing (frozen) does the trick.
A family where someone is home for a majority of the day would be preferred. She is an absolute angel who loves the outdoors and cuddling up with me inside after playtime. She will be the perfect companion!"
06/28/10: Another gem fighting for her life ..
We received a phone message the other night saying she had 10 minutes to find help to prevent an approximately 16 week old boxer mix puppy from being euthanized because the owner said they did not have the money to treat her. They were told the dog had eaten rat poison the day before and her owner brought her to the ER when she started to show symptoms. Luckily we received the message in time and called them right back. Even though they said Jade's chances of surviving were 50/50, I knew we would all agree that we could not let her die as long as there was a fighting chance. Jade's symptoms are indicative of the type of rat poison that contains warfarin which depletes the body of Vitamin K and prevents blood from clotting properly. If not treated quickly the animal starts to bleed which is the case with Jade.
Jade required a blood transfusion last night, was given a dose of Vitamin K, and put on IV fluids. The doctor called early this morning and said Jade was doing as well as could be expected. She is stable for now, but may require more blood. They are watching her closely. she can help, but we will need a quiet foster home for her if Jade makes it past this weekend. Jade needs everyone's positive thoughts and prayers, and an angel to come forward to foster her. Jade will have many restrictions for several weeks and will need a very quiet home where someone is home the majority of the day.
