I'm Gentle and Calm
Dedicated GSROC supporters raised the needed $5000 funds for Becca’s surgery. Becca has received that eye surgery and is much improved! She is seeing much better and feels better too. Our vet has told us thanks to her recent surgery he does not expect a recurrence of this vision problem.
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 hourly eyedrops. Our vet told us she has “dry eye” which causes pain and itching. It can be surgically corrected but is very expensive. We believe without this surgery, Becca will never be adopted.
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 spent time in a GSROC foster home and doing well. She loved to spend her time with her foster mom and was happiest when she is right by her side. She would make a wonderful constant companion. She loved to go for walks and her foster mom went 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.
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.
