11/2 Hi everyone, Brooklyn has had a very busy week.  First, she was at the vets to be spayed and brought up to date on her shots.  As you've seen from her initial information she arrived into rescue with Colitis.....it also turns out that she is also bleeding from her stomach internally.  This complicates her healing prosses more than we anticipated, so beautiful Miss Brooklyn will be available for adoption, HOWEVER, she will need to stay in rescue longer than what we anticipated, and is going to need more medical attention that we originaly thought.

It was a very difficult decision for her owners to surrender Brookly, as she was well loved.  But although it was beleived that she was on a good food, this food did not agree with Brooklyns system and really caused internal harm to her, and was by no means intentional.

For now we have her on a very careful and specific diet Grain Fee, Chicken Free, and chicken by products free (what I call beak feet and fethers, since no one has ever be able to explain to me exactly what chicken by products are.)

Broklyns current diet consists of Natural Balance Bison and Swet Potato dry foot. (No Grains or chicken)

Boiled ground Turkey or Natural Balance Bison and Sweet Potato canned food.

Canned Tuna 2x a week.

Greek yogut 2x a week.

Grated Parmasan cheese 2x a week.

She gets Pepcid in her food 2x a day to help keep excess acid from aggrivating her stomach so that it can heal.

Metronidszole 2x a day (antibiotic/anti inflamatory agent)

Panacur for 3 days only as a precaution for possible parisites even though she tested negative we are doing this only as a precaution.

Right now Brookly is severely underweight because of her condition, and is just starting to actually absorb her nutrition and is very slowily gaining weight.  It is our sincere hope that this girl will gain weight slowly  with careful attention to her overall condition.

In the next few days I will forward her pictures.  Please be aware that they may be disturbing.  She has gained approximately 3 pounds since her arrival and I am hoping that we are making progress.

So please stay tuded to this beautiful girl and and send positive thoughts her way.


10/15 Just a little update on Miss Brooklyn.  She is an absolute doll.  However she did come into rescue with a medical condition called Colitis.  For this reason we do need to get this girl healed and she needs to gain a little weight before we can get her spayed and brought up to date on her shots. 

Personality wise, she is a happy girl who loves to play with plenty of energy to spare.  So far she has done well playing with my boxer boy, and she tries so hard to play with my Boston Terrier who is not convinced that this is appropriate behavior.....Brooklyn is just a typical, energetic young boxer, who is figuring out how to engage her into play.  So on that little note, stay toned to see how this girl settles into life in her foster home. 


10/12/16-We welcomed little Miss Brooklyn today, and what a beautiful girl she is.  She does need to be spayed and brought up to date on her shots.  She did meet the other dogs here today and considering it was a very busy day for her, she did well with introductions.  So please stop in a visit her web page in a few days, and we will have more updates on this pretty girl.
