Meet Lacy - Our Latest Adoptee
Lacy is a friendly, outgoing, young Dane, who has overcome a terrible start in life. She came to us after being left chained outside last January, and she was in bad shape. She'd already had a litter of pups, while only a pup herself. She weighed only 79 pounds, and she had multiple infections and severe happy tail. She received treatment at the vet's for over a month before she was well enough to come home. During that time, she had surgery to remove a growth in her mouth, and had her spay surgery at the same time. The growth was benign, but she then had a reaction to her sutures, and required a second surgery. Also, despite valiant efforts by our vet to save the end of her tail, the happy tail was just too severe, and she had to have the end amputated.
But during all of this, she maintained her happy, playful disposition. And as she got healthy, the "puppy" in her began to really come out! She's curious about everything, and is happy to meet everyone. And she's now found the perfect home, part of an active family, with 2- and 4-legged playmates.
We always have Danes just waiting for their perfect homes – you can see their pictures and descriptions here!
