Sweetie the Three-Legged Poodle was rescued by Monika and John Wilcox. We have no way of knowing how long they had her. She is about 10 years old, but in excellent health. Her teeth were very crusted with tartar, her hair was long and matted, she had tumors all over her belly. We were very worried about her prognosis. She required a major lumpectomy and mastectomy and during her teeth cleaning, two teeth had to be removed. Fortunately for Sweetie, all lumps and her lymph nodes indicated that everything was benign.
She has done very well in her foster home. When she was picked up at Woodland, the ARC volunteer was told, “Be careful, she doesn’t like being messed with.”
Well, after a couple of months she LOVES being messed with. She follows us all over the house, so she can get pet without the foster family’s bigger dogs schlumping all over her. This three-legged dynamo runs with her foster family dogs in the backyard to chase school buses and neighborhood kids along the fenceline like a big girl. When it’s quiet time in the house, she loves to lay close to us or goes off to enjoy quiet time in her crate out in the garage, or scratches quietly in the dining room even though she has no more fleas…..
Sweetie is housebroken, eats only canned Alpo (not the pâté dog food, she hates pâté), adores everyone, is completely housebroken, barks when she thinks she hears an intruder like a big dog, and wants nothing more than to totally fit into your home. This sincere little darling runs wild in circles around you, then stops, sits at your feet and open-mouth smiles up at you. Now, who on earth could say no to that??? She is posted here for adoption at Petfinder.com, or you can just call the Animal Refuge Center and let them know you want to welcome this little love into your home.
