|Recently, a fellow rescuer sent out a plea
for assistance with several dogs that were to be euthanized at a shelter
the following morning. One little girl, "Candy", caught our eye,
not only because of her soulful eyes, but also because she was thought
to have a cancerous tumor on her side. Several rescues pleaded to
have someone save her, so she could live out her final days in a loving
home environment. We agreed to rescue this precious girl, and
immediately rushed her to our vet for testing and treatment.
While her blood tests showed she was anemic (no doubt from the loss of blood through the tumor on her side that had burst open), all other blood results were normal. She was also tested for Heartworm disease, Ehrlichea, Lyme disease and Anaplasmosis. All were negative!
We decided to change Candy's name to something more appropriate, so in keeping with the beautiful color of her coat, we have named her Caramel, but are calling her Cara.
Cara was given a deep cleansing hydro bath at our vet's office, where her beautiful coat showed in all its' glory. The simple act of giving Cara some love and attention during her bath, made her realize how lucky she was. She now began to wag her tail, nudge up against you for petting and rubbing, and best of all, those eyes would stare deeply into your soul, so you knew Cara was thankful to be alive.
Our next step was to determine if the tumor on her side was indeed cancerous. Surgery was scheduled and samples were taken to be sent to a pathologist. After several days of nervously waiting for the results, just today, we were notified of the pathological results. Cara DOES NOT HAVE CANCER!
The large growth on her side came from long term neglect of a skin problem. No doubt from her being left outside for countless hours. Her time on the street didn't help her either. We're so happy to welcome Cara into our rescue, and to find out she has a full life ahead of her, is just icing on the cake!
Our vet has estimated Cara's age at a youthful 4 years. She is one of the sweetest companions you will ever meet. She has a gentle, yet playful demeanor that begs for lot's and lot's of loving! If you don't give Cara the attention she desires, be prepared for some not so subtle nudges from this little lady! But it's difficult to say no to those big brown eyes!All dogs adopted by Scottie Kingdom Rescue, Inc. have had a full medical exam by one of our licensed Veterinarians, and have received all necessary vaccinations, in addition to being spayed/neutered and microchipped.
