Bootie was an owner surrender and like most of the dogs in Old Dog Haven care needed a lot of TLC upon arrival.
When Bootie came to her ODH Final Refuge home her blood sugar was over 400, most likely because she had been eating a diet of human food. Old Dog Haven came to the rescue and Bootie’s diabetes is now being treated with daily insulin. Her blood sugar is now within normal limits and she is on a diet of good quality dog food–her energy has improved and she has become very playful!
Bootie can’t see out of one eye due to an old traumatic injury. Her other eye has a hypermature cataract that is now being treated with eye drops. She has also had intermittent small seizures but this is being controlled with medication.
This little girl is now a bundle of joyous energy. She loves to play with her pack mate Rockie, a Chihuahua. Bootie interacts with all of her pack mates and is very playful with them and loves snuggling up with them on a dog bed. Squeaky toys are her thing and when she is really happy she does the “chin spin” spinning in circles.
I just love that Bootie snuggles with me sleeping near my head. One of her favorite spots to sleep is on my bed. She brings me joy everyday and I am so thankful to Old Dog Haven and its generous supporters for giving Bootie the gift of health, comfort and happiness.
