Please note: The dogs in ODH's Final Refuge care are not adoptable due to medical reasons and all are in permanent homes. Your sponsorship supports the veterinary expenses for these dogs - and we thank you!
Bootie is a tan and white Japanese Chin mix about 14 years old when she came to ODH. She originally came to her Final Refuge home with her brother Half Pint. Sadly, Half Pint died from lung disease after a few months.
Her foster mom says: “Bootie is hilarious. She sleeps on my foster head! When I come home she does the chin spin, she also does the spin for her food. She is a changed dog from when she arrived. Her nick name is Winnie for Winston Churchill, whom she resembles.
“Bootie had a seizure the day she arrived. She also had one the evening on the day her brother was euthanized. She is not medicated for seizures, and we think they are brought on by stress. Bootie was over weight and her blood sugar was over 500. Her weight is now normal and with insulin, Bootie’s blood sugar is in the normal range too. Bootie saw an ophthalmologist for her eye sight. She is losing sight in one eye due to a cataract and has no sight in the other eye due to previous trauma. ”
Bootie needs two eye drops daily, and insulin twice a day. ODH pays for her medications and vet care. Her foster mom is very grateful to have Bootie in her life.
