Karlie is a 7 y.o. OR due to the death of her owner. She is 17-18", now down to 38 pounds, HW/fe-. We have brought her UTD on vaccinations and she has been spayed. She came into the program with untreated thyroid issues and allergies which resulted in chronic skin and ear infections. We have treated her skin and ears, and are excitedly watching her begin to lose weight and feel better!
From her foster mom: It was painful to watch Karlie with her red, inflamed skin when she first came in. As the medications and baths have worked their magic, and the thyroid pills have started to impact her metabolism, she is becoming happier and more active, has already lost 12 pounds (she's down to 38 pounds!), and her hair is growing back where she was shaved to address the skin issues. In a few months, with medication for her thyroid and allergy issues and an appropriate diet, she will be svelte and have gained a glorious Sheltie coat. Karlie enthusiastically wants to make friends with the other Shelties in the house, and is a devoted companion to her humans. She loves to explore, doesn't fear new experiences, and is excited to see what adventures the day holds for her. She will make a wonderful partner in all your activities!
