Winter - Winter is a mix that was owner surrendered to Austin Animal Center after the new owners found out that she had a broken rear leg. We stepped up and got her out of the shelter and contacted an orthopedic surgeon. Her back leg has now been repaired with pins and a plate and she is going thru physical therapy. Winter is around 2 years old and was underweight and anemic when she came in along with the broken leg. Winter is up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventive. Winter will be spayed after her rehabilitation and will be available for adoption the middle of December. Watch for updates on this special little girl.

   
   

Lucas – Lucas is a sheltie mix that came in to the local shelter as a stray. He was found wandering around the lake and had a terrible case of sarcoptic mange. He has been thru treatment for the mange and his hair is starting to grow in and cover the bald places. He is also up to date on all of his vaccinations, heartworm negative, and on heartworm preventative. Lucas is about 14 inches tall and came in to rescue weighing around 14 pounds. Lucas is a happy go lucky puppy that has just gotten into a foster home and we will be learning more about him, his personality and what he knows.

UPDATE: Lucas is over his case of sarcoptic mange and after noticing that the fur was not growing back on his face and feet we took him to a dermatologist. It was determined that Lucas may have what is commonly called collie nose or DM (Dermatomyositis). It is not contagious but a genetic issue that effects a small percentage of shelties and collies. Here is a website with information concerning DM: http://www.illinoissheltierescue.com/dm.html . Lucas is a sweet well behaved sheltie mix. He is house trained and crate trained and has excellent house manners. He loves to go on walks and interacts well with other dogs and with people he meets on those walks. We took him to Barnes and Noble when we were gift wrapping at Christmas and he was a wonderful ambassador meeting and smoozing with all of the visitors. He is currently around 7 years old and is looking for his forever home. He would love an active home as he loves to run and play with toys. He also gets along well with small children and other dogs.
