Hi all! Betsy came to us from Midwest Shiba Inu rescue as our very first foster Shiba. She spent the first 5 years of her life locked away in a kennel raising countless litters of puppies, without regards to her health or conditions. She came to the rescue having severe Glaucoma in her left eye, which had to be removed this past Monday. Her teeth were in horrid shape and its obvious that she's never seen a loving hand. She was also diagnosed with grade 3 LP on one leg and a 2/3 on the other. She will be having correction surgery following her recovery from the eye removal and spay.
Despite all of these problems Betsy shines in giving. This little girl has so much love to give, for anyone who she feels she can trust. She is slowly coming around to us and we are guiding her through this whole ordeal with open arms and open hearts. It makes me sick to know how many puppies she has produced that will most likely end up in the same shape as she was when she came to us, because of the genetic conditions she was allowed to pass on.
Please check back for more updates on Betsy and her progress through rehabilitation of a mill dog to a couch potato member of the family.
