1-6-10 We have received a deposit for Ursula, which will hold her for the next 60 to 90 days while she undergoes her HW treatment. Her adoption is going to be local, so we may have her go back and forth between here and there.
12-5-09 Ursula comes into rescue testing HW positive.
Ursula has been spayed and vaccinated, while she prepares for her HW treatment and recuperation. Ursula weighs 34 pounds, and has a docked tail through no fault of her own.
Ursula is a friendly girl, likes to be by our side, and watches the house if she is outside and we are inside. While Ursula was at the vet for her spay, we received a call saying that she did not like being put into her crate. She was spared being put down, as the vet suggested she could be worked through this issue. Upon bringing her into rescue, right after her spay, we have not experienced a problem with going in or out of her crate. In fact, I have to put a slip lead on her to get her out of the crate. She is kind of cold blooded, and shivers when it has been really cold here. I don't blame her for not wanting to go outside. She keeps her crate clean, and goes potty right way when she is taken outside.
Ursula has been introduced to a small pack and while she was a bit defensive (lifted a lip) with all the noses smelling her up and down, she does not fight and is easily voice corrected. If I say 'hey' she goes belly up, so I try to watch my tone of voice with her.
We have Ursula started on daily Doxycycline to prepare her for her HW treatment in January. Crate rest will be easy with her, as she prefers being in the crate.
Ursula likes to go for leash walks, and does well now with the other dogs. I think that she understands that she doesn't need to worry about any people or dogs here. Ursula is funny, she gives us a toothy grin, which makes her look silly, but is so cute too.
