We help dogs found stray or given up by the prior owner. The $67.50 donation helped rescue one dog and assisted in paying to have the dog neutered. The sponsored pet was Mica, who has been adopted. From her Petfinder profile: “Mica is a 2-1/2-year-old female mixed breed. (We guess golden/husky, but we could be wrong.) She certainly has not had an easy time this year. Her prior owner passed away in January. When she arrived to us, we had to delay her adoption. She is a housetrained dog and she must have held her urine as long as she could because she arrived to us with a urinary-tract infection. With the help of an antibiotic, she cleared up and has been fine ever since. She can be fearful when something is startling/unexpected, so we believe that a child-free home would be best for her. Children can be unpredictable, and we do not like to see her be wary, as she has such a sweet side to her.
“Mica loves to run around outside. She loves people and is friendly when people come to visit. She will also go up to new people while on leash. She walks very well on the leash, too. If she moves ahead, a simple correction is all it takes, and she then walks like pro. She is playful and energetic outside and loves to be pet and snuggled with her humans. She is wonderful with cats, even when they aren’t so wonderful with her. She is crate-trained and does not complain about being in her crate. She is crated when we are not home. She does not whine, bark, or cry when her humans go out. Most nights she lies on the floor or on the dog bed in the bedroom. She sleeps well.”
