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!
Brittany is a powder puff Chinese crested dog who came from a shelter described as blind and diagnosed with really terrible dental disease along with what their vet thought was a serious heart condition. After examination by one of our regular vets and a cardiologist, we found that she has mild mitral valve disease that likely will progress with time but no arrhythmias whatsoever – perhaps she was a simply terrified dog at the shelter? She doesn’t have much vision, but she manages quite well. She has had a badly needed dental procedure and a mass removed from the top of her head, and is now settling in very happily to enjoy life.
Her foster mom says:
“A friend described her as elegant and I agree with that. She is an awesome being. Her ‘singing’ is heart warming. Sometimes it feels like she is saying thank you. She sings spontaneously before meals and when I come home from being away for a bit. She is enjoying being loved with attention and love pats.”
