Breed:Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler) / Beagle
Notes: altered, hasShots, housebroken, noKids, specialNeeds
Sept. 12, 2013 Cassie is 12 years old, spayed, crate-trained and housebroken. She weighs just about 40 lbs. and is a couch potato. She likes to put her chin on your shoulder and "smile" at you; if that doesn't get your attention, then you'll get "The Paw" .... She began showing some stiffness in her back legs in 2007 that turned out to be mild hip dysplasia, although x-rays in March 2012 showed that her hips are normal. ?? Her "ankles" are also broken down, although she seems to have no pain from it, thank goodness. Because of her age and the fact that she's been here so long, and because of her health problems, she is available only as a Sponsor Dog. Please see our Home Page for info on becoming a much-needed sponsor.Cassie hada dental on April 3, 2012, plus bloodwork (normal), a urinalysis since she'd been treatedfor a UTI (normal), and hip x-rays (normal). Thank you so much, Gerry, for your wonderful generosity!
