Sierra's Second Chance
I wanted to pass along how happy we all have been that our 4 yr old Rottweiler Sierra has found her new home. Sierra came to us as an owner surrender on Sept 13. She was, and still is, one of the sweetest dogs I have met. During our intake health exam and vaccination process, her heartworm test came back positive. We were devastated, but the staff never gave up hope. We were able to have the vet get her started immediately on treatment, which is a long, uncomfortable (and expensive) process. She had to be kept calm at all times to keep her heart rate down for the entire time of her treatment. She pulled through like the true champion she is. It is always with mixed emotions when one of our special needs kids finds a home. We miss them dearly, but are overjoyed that they can now be in a good place and be loved like they deserve. Thank you to her new owner.
