I’m pleased to introduce Dottie…or maybe Nellie, the new dog we’ve taken under our wings for foster care. She was transferred to the Nebraska Humane Society from a sister organization in Oklahoma. No one seems to be really sure about her history, but she was apparently in some sort of accident and suffered a fractured pelvis.
It’s obvious that she also recently had a litter of puppies and that she has been spayed. She’s in our care for at least the next two weeks to be sure that she gets her daily medications (antibiotic and anti-inflammatory drugs) and two- or three-times-weekly physical therapy.
She has a wonderfully sweet disposition and will gladly absorb all the gentle petting that one may care to share with her. She gets along fabulously with our cat, Leo the Magnifi- cent, as well, and has shown no interest in chasing him, though she is very fast on her feet. She’s definitely part Beagle, from her coloration and her tendency to keep her nose to the ground whenever she’s outside, and we think that the other part is most likely pointer.
