Thank you for the responses.
Also, AAAAAAAHHHHHHHH! I can’t stand the errors in my original post. It was from my iPad right before bed when I was sleepy. I might try to fix those. twitch twitch
She was only at the pound for a week. They’re full already and lots of puppies coming in, so she was at risk for being PTS. Especially with the heart worm issue.
We didn’t plan to do this. We trapped a feral tomcat that was beating up our two, tame, barn kitties. We took him there to be PTS. Now, they TNR (trap-neuter-release) only. So, you have to pick the feral back up after it’s fixed. I was a little flabbergasted. I don’t want any cats but our barn kitties because I like songbirds. Anyway, so this feral tomcat actually had an infection and some sort of skin disease, so they did put him down. They were sympathetic about our barn kitties being injured (one was adopted from them, after all).
They never have any suitable dogs that would get along with ours, so it’s always a safe trip. Except yesterday. I brought our two dogs back to meet her and it went quite well.
She was a stray and spends a lot of time looking out the window and watching passing cars, as if waiting for the good-for-nothing people who didn’t give her heart worm meds. So far, not a lot of barking. She had one episode this morning in the crate. We ignored it and let her out agin when she was quiet. She needs crate time for alone time and to get through the spay recovery and heart worm treatment. Lovely dog. Not a lot of manners and generally unfamiliar with house rules, but potty training seems decent. She’s small enough to keep off furniture easily. She loves the new food but isn’t sure about toys. She does play with our GSD, though. Not sure what we’ll call her. Not sure if she’ll stay with us after the foster period, but she’s got a chance now and time to learn how to be a family dog.
