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!
Lulu Marie is a Basenji Chihuahua mix surrendered at a shelter at 11 years old early in 2020. The shelter found a sweet dog with a load of medical issues. She needed a spay and the vets discovered skin conditions, inguinal hernias, luxating patellas, and dental disease. All of this pretty much assured that she was not adoptable.
Old Dog Haven accepted Lulu Marie and found her a permanent foster home. They got her to a veterinarian and she had needed vaccines and medications for her liver and skin issues. Then LuLu Marie needed an emergency spay for Pyometra which was unnerving but saved her life. Her blood levels improved dramatically and the liver issue resolved.
In the future, Lulu Marie still needs a hernia surgery and a dental. Despite all this, Lulu Marie is a lovely and photogenic dog who enjoys eating and loves to nap and cuddle. The Basenji part is interesting, because she does not bark but can yodel. She is a good girl and very happy to be part of the Old Dog Haven family.
