Rescue - Settling In
We have been fostering a middle-aged female for about a month. She had a bad case of hookworms, a broken tooth with significant infection, had been trapped just after having a litter, and appeared neglected. She has not felt well since being here. Spaying indicated she had another infection. The dog we see now, after much medication, is improving, but not yet well. She has tried to dig out, and seems to have a sense of unfinished business, trying to travel northeast on walks. Will she be able to leave her last life behind and settle with us? We have a large yard with a low fence she could easily clear, and a highway in view. We need to be able to trust her on the property. There are not animals there to protect, and previously she seems to have guarded goats.
