My Story

Date into Rescue: 7/7/18

Reason for being in rescue: Found as stray by employee

Special Needs: Petunia is in kidney failure.  Our vet is unsure of her exact prognosis so we are loving her for every day she has.  

What kind of home would be best for me: Petunia can be dog selective so would be best in a home with no other dogs.  She would need to be with someone who can do sub-Q fluids daily and is home to let her in and out a lot.  Because of her need for fluids she urinates a lot.  

What is my personality like: Petunia loves humans and thinks that we are wonderful.  She loves to go for car rides and would love to lay on the couch and let you rub her head.  

How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly and wagging that tail til it looks like it's coming off.

Tips and Tidbits: Due to the level of fluids that she takes, she urinates frequently.  We doubt she would wear diapers as she would consider them play things.  She looks vibrant and healthy but blood work tells us differently.  We know her days are short and we are hoping someone out there will consider being her permanent foster until she heads across the Rainbow Bridge.  

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.

Potential Adopters

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.

Thank you for considering CPR!
