Arlene, a foster dog under the care of Tails from Greece Rescue, needed hip replacement surgery to alleviate the pain associated with hip dysplasia. From her Petfinder profile: “Arlene, a spayed female weighing about 25 kg, was born in the summer of 2012 and arrived at the shelter with two pups in October 2013. Her pups were adopted long ago but she waits still for her forever home to come along. She’s described as being very sweet, a little shy but not timid and she has no fear of strangers and/or children. She astonished the shelter staff recently when she voluntarily approached some school children who’d come to visit the shelter and enjoyed being petted. And on another occasion she smothered a toddler’s face with kisses. Overall very well socialized with other dogs, both male and female. She could, however, lose a few pounds but at the shelter that’s difficult to do as the dogs share kennel space and they tend to eat more than their own share of food.” Arlene has been adopted!
