10 yr old ~ Female ~ Adopted by fosters
UPDATE JUNE 16, 2020:
Our sweet senior girl Raven is another SECR pup that has had quite the journey since joining us in rescue. With her foster Mom’s help she’s been placed on a healthy diet to facilitate weight loss and make signs of early kidney disease manageable. She’s also tackled hip displasia, elbow arthritis, lipomas, and dental issues. It’s a lot for a small old lady like Raven, but with her Mom and her BFF, newly adopted SECR alum Chewie, by her side, she’s been able to take it all on with a smile and a nubbin wag.
Raven and Chewie developed a sweet bond during their time together in SECR foster, so it’s no surprise that an adoption for Chewie also means an adoption for Raven! We are absolutely thrilled to announce that this dynamic duo is making their relationship permanent in what is now officially their forever home!
Congratulations x2 to this happy family!
UPDATE FEBRUARY 3, 2020:
We’re happy to report that Raven is settling in to her foster home nicely. From the looks of it, couch time is her favorite time. Look at that sweet Corgi smile!
Update : Raven just moved into her foster home a few days ago, so we’ll get more photos soon. Her foster mom had her at the vet this morning for a follow up appointment and said she saw the first hint of a nubbin wag!
Meet Raven: Raven was an owner surrender and came in with Murphy. The pair wasn’t bonded, however, so it was decided to foster them separately. Raven has some health issues that we want to make sure to keep on top of so it made sense to place her in a home where she could be monitored closely. Raven is obese and has what appears, based on blood work, to be early kidney disease, possibly brought on by the use of NSAID’s. (NSAID’s are a type of medication used as anti inflammatory.) Raven has hip dysplasia and elbow arthritis, most likely exacerbated if not caused by her weight. We’ll be making sure Raven gets a special renal diet and stays well hydrated. We’ll be working on helping her slim down too! Raven has several lipomas and needs some dental work. We will be running further tests on her to make sure that there are no other issues. Welcome to SECR, Raven!
