January 2014- Cassie is 12-13 years old, spayed, and paper-trained. 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. She's also recently had some bladder issues and needs to return to the vet again for a sterile urine catch for culture. She's eating well as usual (always has!). Because of her age and health problems, she is also available as a Sponsor Dog. Please see our Home Page for info on becoming a much-needed sponsor. Cassie had a dental on April 3, 2012, plus bloodwork (normal), a urinalysis since she'd been treated for a UTI (normal), and hip x-rays (normal). Thank you so much, Gerry, for your wonderful generosity!
