Reason for being in rescue? Eve was dumped at a North Carolina shelter the day before Christmas Eve because "I don't want my family to see her." No wonder - she had been neglected for a long time but we've taken care of a lot of that.
Special Needs?Eve is heartworm positive (HW+). She will be sent home with a year's supply of heartworm prevention medication. She is being treated for her heartworms with a method called the slow kill treatment. She takes a monthly Ivermectin based heartworm preventative and needs to be re-tested for heartworms every 6 months. Once she tests negative, then she can take any kind of heartworm preventative; she is not restricted to Ivermectin based only. BEFORE CONSIDERING A HEARTWORM POSITIVE DOG, PLEASE TALK TO YOUR VET OR THEIR SUGGESTED PROTOCOLS AND CHECK COSTS. Eve also had a very large inguinal hernia which was repaired. She has done very well since her surgery. She has a couple of other small bumps that need to be watched and eventually she will need her teeth cleaned.
What kind of home would be best for me? Eve is such an easy and sweet little girl. She asks for very little. She would make a great home for a quieter family that is lower energy and wants to enjoy the company of a quiet girl.
What is my personality like? Happy, affectionate and quiet. Eve loves to watch TV and go for long, long walks. She may be low to the ground but she can get around great.
How do I act when I meet new people? Curious and ready to meet a new friend. She does not jump on you or act overly rambunctious. She's a quiet, well mannered girl who waits for you to want her.
Tips and Tidbits: Eve is such a love that it is hard to wrap around the idea that she was ever neglected and ignored. The hernia that was repaired hung down to the ground and was the size of a grapefruit. But through everything, Eve has been quietly happy and has never blamed people for her bad luck. Her coat now glows with good health. Her eyes are bright and shining. She has hope and a home with us as long as she needs it and she knows it. She's a far cry from the sick, dejected little spaniel that came to us on Christmas Eve. We have brought her this far and now we need to find you, that one person who will make Eve the apple of their eye. Our plan is to make the second half of Eve's life much better than the first half and we need to find you to do it.
House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
