Jingle Bell was taken to the shelter at age 15 when her person could no longer care for her. She came to her ODH home at Christmas 2015, thus her name, and is the happiest lady. Jingle has been fighting a chronic infection in her anal glands but, thanks to the ODH Maranda Fund, she had the much needed surgery by a specialist and is well on her way to feeling great again. At 16, she has a spring in her step again, and is the only one of the dogs in the family who gets home from a 2 mile walk and still wants to play ball! Everyone else is ready for their nap. She is a beautiful lady, very respectful and a just a delight to share life with.
Update from her ODH Foster Mom:
Jingle Bell joined my heart (and pack) in December of 2015. She was such a pretty red color with the most pleasant demeanor. She loved playing ball in the yard and would prance around so proudly after catching the ball in her mouth.
When she became too frail to go on long walks with the rest of her pack, I would take her and her buddy Dakota (another ODH dog) on the “Senior Stroll”. We would only go a few blocks, but she looked forward to this walk everyday and she would make sure I never forgot.
She was my loyal companion and followed me everywhere I went and slept on her dog bed next to me every night. She greeted me every morning with such loving eyes. I shared a deep connection with Jingle Bell. She will always be in my heart and I will forever miss her.
Thank you to Old Dog Haven for providing the best medical care available. Jingle Bell won the doggie lottery in her last two years of life, I just wish she could have stayed longer.
