Update  Kody is well enough to be released from El Paso Animal Hospital in Wichita, KS. after 12 days in Intensive Care and an emergency surgery to remove an abscess on his liver.  What a journey for this little man.  Lisa Weeks is our foster mom in Wichita and will care for Kody during his recovery.  I will ask Lisa to share some photos and pupdates.

 

 

Kody (with Patron as an addition because it was National Tequila Day) was brought to a Veterinary Hospital in Wichita, Kansas to be euthanized because of a collapse from heat prostration.  (It is not the best time to ask me what I think of humans in general!)  Because we have helped with lots of Collies and Shelties in that part of Kansas, one of the staff vets called and asked if we would consider taking on this little bitty senior Sheltie.  And Kody certainly deserves a chance to recover from this tragic neglect if he can, so we said, YES."

He is still on IV fluids with antibiotics and glucose and vitamins and electrolytes.  And that is how his poor little leg developed phlebitis which is an inflamation of a vein.  Poor little man!

Updates as we know more.  Thanks for caring.

Please begin the process for adoption by reading our Adoption Policies and, if we sound like the right group for you, fill out our online Adoption Application. From there, our receipt of your completed application will be confirmed by email. You then will receive a follow-up phone call if we feel you are a good potential applicant for the dog. Lots of good conversation with the foster family, a reference from your veterinarian, and a home visit round out the screening process. We take dog adoption very seriously.  Please put a lot of thought into why you want to adopt a dog, and help us make a good match for your family. We appreciate your taking the time to visit with us. We will look forward to hearing from you as well.
