~10 years old, in foster

February 6, 2021: Welcome Sonia to SECR!

It’s a beautiful weekend for rescue! There’s another Golden Girl in the house, and her name is Sonia!

Sonia comes to us as a stray shelter pull. Her finder saw Sonia wandering down the middle of the road and kept her safe and cared for until her stray hold was up. However, she has a young child and due to Corgis’ unpredictability around kids we were all in agreement she’d thrive the most in a home without them. Sonia has some arthritis in her spine and hips that we’re treating with anti-inflammatories to boost her mobility, and we’re giving her dewormer to take care of her whipworms. Initial testing shows Sonia does not have heartworm, which is wonderful given that we don’t really know how long she’s been on her own. We’ll be giving her monthly preventatives until she can be tested again in 6 months, as there can be a lag period until heartworms show up in testing on newly-infected dogs.

We’ll post more about Sonia as we learn more about her, but for now she’s happily settling into her foster home after her vet visit and a nice bath and nail trim. Next on the agenda? A whole lot of TLC.
