Abba is a Sheltie/miniature Aussie mix who came to us from another rescue group. She is a petite 11 or 12 inches tall, weighs about 17 pounds, and is estimated to be about 10 years old. She is spayed, current on vaccines, fecal negative, heartworm positive. When she came to us, she had a number of mammary tumors. She had a major surgery to remove all the tumors, which were sent off for biopsy. Some of the tumors were benign, but two were malignant. One of the malignant tumors was a high grade and unfortunately had spread into lymph nodes and the bloodstream. Because of that, it is possible that Abba will at some point have a recurrence of cancer locally or at other locations in her body. To see her, you would never know that she has any health problems. She eats well and gets along with the resident dogs and cat. Although she is a bit timid and shy, she often follows me around the house and sleeps in a dog bed beside my bed. She is well house trained, walks well on a leash, and enjoys being brushed. Our plan is to keep her happy and comfortable and exercise watchful waiting for any developments in her health status. We are glad to have this cute, perky little girl in our group.
