Jenny is just about ready to find her forever home. The pain meds, chiropractic adjustments, and acupuncture have done wonders for her getting around better. We have been able to build up the muscles in her rear legs through gradual increases in walks and swims, as well as relieve some of the pain in the hips with the other therapies. She has also started taking glucosamine supplements for joint health which she should be on for the rest of her life. She is walking about 2 miles now and loves the water and playing fetch. We will be reducing/eliminating her pain meds to the point where she needs them only for comfort/maintenance.
The lick granuloma on her back leg wound is healing nicely and the hair is starting to grow over the top again… should be good as new in the next week. She was groomed which got rid of a ton of undercoat and also cut her fur short.
She is not a barker, does not go on furniture, doesn’t jump, and doesn’t sleep on the beds. She loves people. I have not had her with smaller kids so have no idea how she would be with them. She is a very loving dog and loves attention. She is not a runner and likes to walk around the yard… she stays close to me when I am in the gardens.
The only down side is she is not always great with other dogs. She has been around some without issue, but with others she will growl. We will be looking for a home where she can be the only dog and will have limited and controlled interactions with other dogs.
