Sugar is an approximately 8 year old female mixed breed dog. She is mostly Shepherd with some other breeds mixed in. Regardless of her breed, she lives up to her name as being the sweetest dog we have ever seen. She came to us from another local rescue. They had brought her up from Texas. She came to us heartworm positive and with a longstanding knee injury that needed evaluation.
Sugar just had a really great check up on the progress of her knee fungal infection The doctors feel that it is progressing and would like to wait another 3 months to allow her more time to heal before starting her heartworm treatment. In the meantime she has been going for social distancing field trips to the beach with one of volunteers, and loving all the attention she gets from the staff.
