I'm Gentle and CalmPlease Foster Me!
Becca is another of the dogs confiscated from a hoarding situation. She is related in some way to the reindeer group of dogs that we rescued just before Christmas. She arrived with serious eye infections and needed our help. Now that she is receiving treatment, she is making great strides.
Becca in a GSROC foster home and doing well. She loves to spend her time with her foster mom and is happiest when she is right by her side. She would make a wonderful constant companion. Becca enjoyed watching the Olympics with her foster mom but wouldn’t say which contest was her favorite! She loves to go for walks and her foster mom goes for bike rides with Becca right by her side.
Her vision impairment causes her to miss some things – she doesn’t see cats and squirrels when they run by her – but when she gets close to other dogs, she will bark. We believe it may be that due to her limited vision, she is not exactly sure if the dogs are friend or foe. Once she understands they will not hurt her, she calms down and is fine.
Our vet has likened her vision issues to looking at the world through dirty sunglasses. She is on several different medications for this and the foster mom believes Becca is improving. Her right eye has improved dramatically and the vet is hoping the left eye will do the same.
Our vet has informed us that Becca has made strides with her vision. Her right eye has improved greatly although her left eye still requires eyedrops. Now that her vision has improved, her foster mom believes she may be able to live with a cat. We are working on increasing her socialization with other animals. It is apparent that she wasn’t allowed to hang out with other dogs before coming to GSROC. Consequently, she barks at them at first – because she is a bit fearful. However, the other day on a walk, 2 small dogs charged her – and Becca cowered!
Becca needs a foster home so she can continue to make positive strides. Please complete the online foster application if you are able to provide this sweet girl with a place to stay.
