Carmen - Available for Adoption
Breed: German Shorthaired Pointer/Chocolate Lab mix
Age: 13 yrs old
Vaccinations: Up to date
Cats: Not tested
6/1/18: Carmen truly loves the outdoors and she has come such a long way since we rescued her. She does have some incontinence and other senior dog issues but she has a beautiful spirit! Look at how pretty she looks.
Update on Carmen from her foster mom: I have been gone for the last 8 days and so surprised at Carmen’s progress. Yep, that is her in the picture trotting in the backyard. When we picked her up on March 17th she could hardly stand up on her own...now she chases a balls. Her coat is nice and shiny and she has gained a few pounds. She goes up and down the stairs with Neil to build back the muscle in her legs. Brutus and Ava don’t growl at her anymore. She still has a long recovery ahead of her but she is really doing great.
Carmen came into rescue severely malnourished and very weak. We have done a complete blood panel on her and she is overall healthy and are watching a few things that we are hoping is linked to the lack of proper nutrition. She will be seeing the vet again in 30 days.
Carmen is pretty much blind and relies on her humans to help guide her.
