Brie is a beautiful 7 year-old Sheltie with an outstanding disposition. Sadly, she found herself homeless at a rural county dog shelter at an age when she should be enjoying life in a home with her family. To make matters worse, the shelter discovered that Brie had several mammary growths which greatly reduced the chance that anyone there would want to adopt her. The good news for Brie is that they contacted Canine Lifeline for help so Brie made the trip to us to get the medical attention she needed. Brie was spayed and had her mammary growths removed the week of June 23. Brie had four growths removed; two were benign fatty lumps and two were mammary carcinomas (one low grade and one intermediate grade). The good news is that it appears that surgical excision completely removed the carcinomas. Her lymph nodes are normal and chest x-rays revealed no problems in her lungs so it appears that she is now cancer-free. Her new owner will need to be vigilant and keep on the look-out for any additional problems but for now, Brie is doing really well. After her arrival, it became apparent very quickly that Brie is deaf. She had her teeth cleaned and one tooth extracted in July so is now ready to start looking for a great new home. In spite of all she’s gone through, Brie always has a smile on her face and a wagging tail for her human friends. She gets along with other dogs too as long as they’re mellow and match her easy-going, low-key energy level. She walks beautifully on a leash, has excellent crate manners, and is likely to be housetrained. Brie weighs about 33 pounds and her adoption fee is $125. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week trial period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
