ADOPTED .. Panda, STAR # 1280
ADOPTED… Panda/aka Teddy, STAR # 1280..
Not sure why we picked up this dog at MCAS back in October.. he has a million things wrong with him that would not appeal to adopters.. something about the pink feet and the fact that he
had been standing there waiting for five weeks ..
Teddy finally has his forever home with Pam and Leslie in Dallas.. With Robin/aka Quinn, Class of 2013 and doggie sibling Abbie.. He will be well taken care of as Pam is a veterinarian as well as wonderful doggie mom.. STAR and Teddy could not be luckier.. We look forward to lots of updates..
We need to thank Terry and Zee for being such a great foster home for all of these months and getting Teddy to be the best he can be..
We are looking forward to photo of the whole family !!!
ADOPTION PENDING.. Panda/aka Teddy, STAR # 1280
After three months in foster care, Teddy has gained nine pounds and his coat is looking great..He is quite spry in the morning before breakfast. He loves to go for short walks and gets very excited when the leash comes out..He has a foster sister that he tries to keep up with.. especially when it comes to getting attention.
The bad news is Teddy has heartworms, the good news is that xrays showed only minor enlargement of his heart because of the worms.. We are using the slow kill method for Teddy because of his age.. STAR is prepared to supply the treatment he needs for the next year. Heartgard twice a month and a month of Doxy every three months..He also has some minor hip problems that require glucosomine.
NEW DOG.. Panda, STAR # 1280..
Older black bi, super skinny at 37 lbs., mildewed feet from standing in water.. FIVE weeks he has been at MCAS and no one called us..Another rescue person sent me a photo.. Sadly he has heartworms, so we will fatten him up and see about treatment.. Already neutered, vaccinated and chipped. Panda should be ready for adoption near the first of the year..
The best news I have on his overall progress is that he now weighs 45.5 lbs! The addition of a little canned dog food + daily treats have helped.He hasn’t had any more accidents in the house. He still has some hip issues that we are looking into.. arthritis maybe. He also has enlarged his preferred “hang out area.” When the weather was nice he wanted to lay outside on the deck.We’ve encountered a couple of new dogs & people w/o any problems & he gets excited to just “go” wherever or by getting his leash out.
We are slow treating Panda for his heartworms.. We will see how he progresses..
