E Age: 8 years Gender: Female Color: Liver & White Weight: 50 lbs Variety: Bench We would like to thank Sarah Ernhart of Sarah Beth Photography, Minneapolis/Saint Paul, for generously donating the photos of Mandy displayed here. Visit her website.
Mandy was picked up as a stray in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in January of 2016. We're still not sure how this sweet older girl ended up as a stray, but she has been embracing the good life since coming into ESRA's care.
We don't know exactly how old Mandy is, but her veterinarian estimates her to be around eight years old. She has some age-related changes to her eyes, but she can still see very well. She is hard of hearing. Mandy was in pretty rough shape when she was taken in by our volunteers, but with a lot of great care, she's working on getting healthy! She will soon have a dental cleaning, and the large lump on her left rib cage will be removed before she goes to her new home.
Mandy is currently working out on the underwater treadmill to help her lose weight safely and gain muscle. Since January, she has lost twenty pounds, with just a bit more yet to lose. Mandy is currently under the care of a rehabilitation veterinarian to help her get strong and healthy. It would be great if she could continue to see her rehab vet once she has been adopted so that she can remain as strong and physically healthy as possible.
Mandy loves to be involved in the daily life of her family, but she is also comfortable being left home alone. She enjoys going for walks, running laps around the yard, napping in the sun, cuddling, and playing with a select few toys. She's just one of those very good dogs who is easy to live with and to love.
Please note that an approved adoption application is the first step in a more thorough interview process that is designed to match each dog to exactly the right family, and that the final decision rests with the dog's case manager.
Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Mandy.
