PLEASE BE PATIENT AS WE NAVIGATE THESE UNCHARTERED WATERS. We DO NOT adopt out of state. *** Annie was born in approximately 2013. She is a very sweet, affectionate dog who gets along with all other dogs. She is mostly potty trained with the occasional accident. She has had some tooth loss, and several teeth pulled at last dental. We generally soak her kibble to make it easier for her to chew. Annie is currently about 14.5 pounds. Annie was rescued from the shelter. Her owner had moved and left her with friends who did not want her so they passed her along to someone else, who also didn’t want her and they left her outside, so they didn’t have to deal with her. Annie was good at escaping from their yard and would often be found wandering the neighborhood. She was finally picked up by Animal Control and brought to the shelter. Owners were contacted and relinquished Annie to the shelter. It was then discovered that Annie had a severe heart murmur that would need to be evaluated by a veterinary cardiologist. Annie’s foster mom noticed Annie having frequent episodes that looked similar to seizures but were later diagnosed as heart disease. Annie has a left Atrium leaky valve and an enlarged heart, which has been managed well with medication. She will need to remain on this medication for the rest of her life, and have regular follow up visits with a cardiologist to monitor her progress. Annie also takes a prescription Apoquel for seasonal allergies.

I'd like to know more about Annie!
