Arrival Story:
she was abandoned in the boarding kennel at the animal hospital where i work. the first week i worked there i learned of her story. she had been abandoned for 2 months, the previous owner relocated without bringing her with them. nice people hu? so i took her in, she was 8 years old and at first she had some problems due to being in a cage and abandoned but we worked through that. i even worked with her stress anxiety and had her evaluated by a behaviorist, with med, training, patience and love she got better with that....in the meantime she started getting very sick. food allergies, seasonal allergies, irritable bowel disorder, urinary tract infections, ear infections, staph infections, bloody noses, the list goes on. it was one thing after another. we were all stumped to why she was so sick all the time. there was an immune deficiency going on, possible cancer. so we made the decision to put her to sleep. she was uncomfortable and it was a quality of life issue.

Bio:
even though i only knew her for a year, she has a very special place in my heart. and i am unsure about her past, but i can just guess it wasn't a good one due to the abandonment the previous owners sound like they didn't care too much for her. in that short year, i am satisfied that i gave her a nice home to live in, i showed her what a human friend was, she got to know what love was. i believe that she is now looking over baby chiwi and is her guardian angel dog....
