Say hello to Valley Girl! This tiny treasure found herself in a shelter but ATDR couldn’t bear to see her spend another day there, much less the holidays! She’s now enjoying life in a loving foster home being well cared for and treated as family! The hairless places and scars likely caused by being attacked by another animal are already looking better although the hair will probably never grow back. Even with this, her tail never stops wagging and she lovingly follows her foster dad everywhere.
This precious baby has tested positive for heartworms and is facing treatments so she won't be ready to go until the middle of March or first of April. She'll be well cared for while going through her treatments.
In the meantime, if you’re looking for a precious best friend to warm your heart and lap, please submit an adoption application for Valley Girl! She will make some lucky person or family with no smaller children a wonderful loving companion. Older gentle teenagers would probably be OK.
