My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Are you ready for a story about a caterpillar turning into the most beautiful butterfly?  That describes Betty aka Betty Boo, Bet Boo, Betboozie, Boozie and lil piggy(she snorts).  I saw her face and description posted at a pound.  They said she had a wobbly walk and and patchy, irritated skin.  As soon as I took the leash and walked out, I knew her cruciate was torn.  I knew this would be a long-term case.  We got in the car and the whole ride she whined and cried out while rubbing her skin against the back seat.  We went right to the tub for a medicated bath.  She was so good for it and you could see the relief and appreciation with her big smile-it’s infectious!  You can’t help but smile when she looks at you.  She had some mammary lumps, needed spayed and a consult for her leg.  It was decided to remove the masses first and send to the lab.  The specialist said if the masses return quickly then the leg surgery wasn’t an option.  They didn’t come back!!! Betty was scheduled for a TPLO.  I was filled with total excitement for this girl!  It took some time for that special day but having such a caring, compassionate and impeccable surgeon was worth the wait.  Betty(and I) had a challenging few weeks.  She did great after surgery but 44# of dead weight having to be carried upstairs, put on/off the bed/furniture for several weeks was a tough job but she’s worth it!  Luckily her skin was great during that time.  It was a struggle to figure out what the issue was at first.  She had red, irritated and very itchy skin.  She was on multiple rounds of several medications, medicated baths several times a week and I started eliminating certain proteins to figure it out.  I noticed her skin was amazing during recovery and realized I was carrying her out and bringing her right back in. She couldn’t roam around the yard and be a sneak and munch on weeds!  She started on Apoquel and it cleared her right up!  She does get a loud “Betty!” when I see her creeping thru the landscape.  I rescued Betty at the end of January 2022.  Her skin was great during the frigid months after it was balanced/cleared up.  I’m unsure if she will need to be on Apoquel all year or just the spring until winter hits.  She is on daily CBD oil(surgeon recommended) and will need to stay on this.  It made a noticeable difference in just 3 days.  It costs approximately $30/mo.  She is completely housebroken, is on the lower side of the energy scale, loves butt scratches(watch you hand/fingers bc she does nibble if you get her going), is friendly with dogs of all sizes(with proper introduction) and is complete lover!  Her pure and happy heart brings joy to each day.  She snores when in a deep sleep.  She snorts like a piggy when she’s acting silly.  She adores her 25# foster brother.  He looks out for her.  She doesn’t do well with dogs with too much energy or that act crazy.  She feels a bit intimidated by dogs much larger than her or that are too dominant.  I’ve had multiple kittens/cats around her. She does great with them unless they fuss with her too much then she air nips.  I would love to see Betty in a home with a smaller more submissive dog that is a bit playful.  She deserves to have tons of love and attention especially being around 9yrs old.  She does get playful with her foster brother and with toys especially squeaky ones.  She needs a good walk everyday to keep that new leg moving and rebuilding muscle.  We are working on building stamina since she went an unknown amount of time in her condition.  She has a scar on her head and her ear seems it was gnarled.  She also has a scar on her leg.  I don’t know if she was caught in something or not.  Whatever happened to her didn’t suppress her beautiful spirit!  I’ve attached a video with her pictures.  You have to watch it!  Her adoption fee is $150 which includes her spay, vaccines, microchip and current monthly prevention for heartworm, flea and ticks and a new leg!!!  If you’re interested in meeting this beautiful butterfly, please apply at www.tobyscrittercoverescue.org.

More about this rescue

Toby’s Critter Cove Rescue was established in 2020, the year that everything seems to be falling apart. Our one glimmer of hope was starting a passionate program rescuing animals in Summit and surrounding counties. Our motto, no paw left behind, which we live and breathe to ensure no animal goes unloved or uncared for. Our goal is to educate not only our volunteers, but also the community about responsible animal ownership. In addition, offering a varied level of support structures to ensure the most positive home placement for all our critters.
