HSTC Pet of the week March 23

HSTC Pet of the week March 23

I came in to the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast as a stray just before closing the day before Thanksgiving. The people who brought me in to the shelter were very concerned as they noticed that I had a large, foul smelling wound on my abdomen. Thankfully, the vet was still at the shelter and was able to check me over and get me started on treatment immediately. It turns out that is wasn’t so much a wound as it was very nasty case of mastitis (an infection in the mammary tissue) that had become necrotic; the vet performed a full mastectomy on one side. It took me a bit to heal and once I did I became available for adoption just in time for Christmas!

The staff gave me a festive name (Mrs. Claus) in the hopes that I would be adopted much quicker. Unfortunately, I am still here at the shelter and it is now almost the end of February! I am a little frustrated here in the kennel and will bark and charge my kennel door at other dogs. However, I have made a few play friends, so I just need a meet-and-greet with any potential doggie siblings. I am very sweet and playful with people. I am a high-energy gal and I’d love home that would teach me some extra manners as I don’t have very many.
