Six year old Sasha and nine year old Wyatt came into rescue in October 2019 when their owner passed away. The family, holding them in a dirt area, did not want to keep them. The first thing Wyatt did was roll around in the grass at his new foster home, a wonderful sight to see. The two dogs could not be more different in temperament; Sasha lives in the moment, Wyatt ever the thinker and a perfect gentleman.
Vetting diagnosed Sasha with Cushing’s disease and transitional cell bladder cancer. She had to be shaved and anesthetized to remove hundreds of foxtails from her coat and ears. For months Sasha wore shirts made from scrub tops from her foster mom to protect her skin. Now her coat is growing in quite lovely.
Sasha’s cancer made her a candidate for our permanent foster program. Sasha and Wyatt have been together Sasha’s entire life; he is her ‘comfort dog’ so of course we made room for another pup!
Sasha’s prognosis is a year or so her foster mom (and Wyatt) are making each moment count.
