Imagine being homeless for over a year, especially in the freezing cold weather we’ve had recently. 7-year-old Sandy had been a stray for the past year or so, and was recently saved by our Rescue Team. She came to us in pretty bad shape. She was missing a lot of fur, (you can see that the fur on her tail has yet to grow back) and she was fearful of people, but with some TLC, regular meals, and a warm place to sleep, Sandy is in much better shape and improving daily! She would do best in a quieter home with older children, and maybe another quiet dog. She enjoys attention and being petted. Sandy loves to play with squeaky toys and going for walks. She already knows “sit,” “down” and “paw.”
Due to her extended time outside without proper care, Sandy tested positive for heart worm. She will be sent home as a foster to adopt until she completes her round of treatment. If you are interested in adopting Sandy please call our Boston Adoption Center at 617-226-5602 or stop by and meet her! If you’d like to make a donation to help Sandy and other animals like her you can do that too!
