I am so glad some of these poor dogs get to come across kind people like you. I really hope she can stay with you, she sounds as if she has been very unhappy.
Mama_Zookeeper said:OK, she has a vet appointment on Friday 3/3. I am not sure what too ask for as I have never taken in a stray off the street. At this point we are treating her as a stray since we know so little about her. the vet asked if we are keeping her and I told her my mom wants her, so if she has no microchip and we cannot find an owner she will be part of our family. My parents are so excited about her! This means a heart worm check, rabies & distemper vaccines. There is no scar on her belly, so she will need to get spayed right away. I am crossing my fingers she is not already pregnant. What other tests should I ask for? Maybe a fecal test to check for worms?
