My Story

Date into Rescue: 10/21/2020

Reason for being in rescue: stray Anderson

Special Needs: This dog is heartworm positive (HW+). She will be sent home with a year supply of heartworm medication. She is being treated 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 he tests negative, then he can take any kind of heartworm preventative; he is not restricted to Ivermectin based only.

What kind of home would be best for me: Leisel is looking for a home that understands and is committed to ongoing medical care. As a senior girl, she is vision impaired, moves slower, and is on slow kill treatment for heartworms. Her forever home will be committed to diligent continued heartworm medication and ongoing monitoring.

Leisel wants a lap. She'd be happy living with other dogs or cats and will snuggle with them in a bed if they are up for it. She'd be equally happy as the only princess in the home. Leisel would be best in a home with few stairs given her limited vision. She would love retirees who want a dog to spend their days snuggling on them.

What is my personality like: Beautiful Leisel has long, flowing hair and a heart of gold. This precious senior soul was found wandering the streets of South Carolina. We'll never know why, but landing in rescue may be her luckiest day. You see, Leisel has heartworms. These nasty parasites come from a mosquito bite and attack the heart. At her age, an aggressive treatment isn't recommended. So we're managing Leisel's treatment with a slower kill method and looking for a home that will continue with this journey.

Leisel is a dream. She loves all dogs and could care less about cats. She loves to eat and will follow you anywhere for a treat. She loves her people and will seek you out and jump up until you pick her up. Leisel is very vision impaired; we do think she seems some light, but it is minimal. She will cuddle up with other dogs, but is equally content snuggling down into a warm bed. Leisel is the quintessential lap pet that wants to be where her people are. As her lead caregiver says, Leisel is the best!

How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly, Leisel is a lover!

Tips and Tidbits: Leisel's estimated birthday is 10/17/2010

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!
