This very sweet wonderful 7 yr old girl has spent all of her life living in a cage with wire fencing for floor, making babies. And she can still smile. She is loving and affectionate, and is learning to play with other dogs, and toys. It is wonderful to watch her learn and discover new things, and she is having a ball!
Wynn must have a companion animal, preferably another terrier. If you don't already have another terrier and would like to adopt another one you know she likes, one of her new playmates will be ready in a couple of weeks.
Wynn has had some very bad infection in each one of her feet from walking on the wire cage floor. She had oozing sores between each toe, and deep pockets of infection in the center of each foot. Her front feet were so bad the wound went all the way thru and was oozing out of the top of her foot. We have cleaned them out, medicated, put in a couple of stitches, and soaked them, and they are soooo much better, but not 100% quite yet. Her nails were so long they were curving under her feet. We have made great progress there, nipping some off every week or so, and she is now able to walk almost normally. How she maintains such a happy, loving attitude is a mystery to me. I would be crabby and mean spirited. She will be fine with cats, and with older kids. She is very gentle and calm, easy to live with, but still needs house training.
We do not charge an adoption fee, but do ask a donation to reimburse for our medical and transport expenses. That is usually $450 for an adult dog, $800 for puppy under 1 year, and reduced amounts for senior and special needs dogs. Now that we are officially a 501c3 charity, all donations are tax deductible. We are not a brick & mortar shelter. All of our dogs are fostered in private homes. If you would like to help with fostering, please submit an adoption application
Each dog will be spayed/neutered, heartworm tested (negative, unless stated otherwise), treated for parasites, and up to date on shots. While we are vigilant to get everyone as healthy as possible before we send them off to start their new lives, it is to be expected that, after the stress of traveling across the country from Kansas, (where most of our dogs are rehabilitated), and going to a new home, they will probably need to be retreated for parasites. We want to stress that your new friend needs to be seen by your veterinarian within the first week of arrival.
We absolutely guarantee a happy adoption, or you MUST return the dog and we will undo the contract. If you are not happy, the dog is not happy, and we are not happy. We are in this to make the dogs happy.
