Hi everyone, I'm Pippa. Life as I knew it for the last 9 years changed at the end of July when my family surrendered my fur-sister and I to a shelter saying they couldn't afford to take care of us anymore.
The shelter got all my vetting done, spay and some large skin tags removed. I had some seeping when I tore my stitches out so they started me on thyroid meds and noted that I might have something called vWD.
I made my way to Doberman Underground after being at the shelter for 5 weeks. My foster mom says I'm going to have a swab done for a vWD DNA test since there was concern over my seeping. The shelter started me on thyroid medicine. It's been found it can help with bleeding problems. They're going to run a Michigan State full thyroid panel to make sure my thyroid level is regulated. I'm told hypothyroid seems to be common with dobermans nowadays. It's treated with medicine that costs $0.32 a day. I've been started on some glycoflex 3 too for my 9 year old joints.
After spending a month in the shelter, I'm a little scared right now. I'm not sure what to make of all these changes in my life. I do tell my foster mom thank you for loving me with little soft kisses. I love to steal the pillow on the couch and lay on it. I'm living with a couple foster fur-siblings right now. They seem ok but I'm just not sure of what's going on. I watch them play but not sure I want to join in.
My foster mom keeps telling me I'm such a petite little thing. I do need to gain a couple pounds right now. I would love to find someone with a nice comfy spot for me to lay my head and spend my retirement years. Do you have a spot for me? Send in your application today.
Pippa's adoption fee is $250.
