8/6/16: Please welcome Muffin! Muffin joins us from Madison Oglethorpe Animal Shelter. Apparently Muffin and a few other dogs were left abandoned in a house. A concerned person got all of the dogs to the shelter. We were notified about Muffin from friends on Facebook and we are happy that Madison Oglethorpe Animal Shelter allowed her to come into rescue. We appreciate them for being “rescue friendly”. And we appreciate Robin for transporting her to our vet. At first glance she appears to have some eye issues. She will have a full exam by Dr Ross and any needed surgery while she is at the clinic for her two weeks of shelter quarantine.
She is five years old. She likes dogs and young children. At this time we do not know if she likes cats.
Update 8/12/16: Muffin had surgery today and all went well. She was spayed and had entropian surgery.
Update 8/19/16: Muffin moved into her foster home this week and is doing great. She is living with another dog and a young child. She seems to like both of them. She will see the vet again in two weeks to have her spay stitches removed. She seems a bit stuff so we are starting her on joint supplements.
Update 9/2/16: Muffin had a few masses removed while she was under for her spay surgery a few weeks back. The biopsy showed one of them is a grade 2 mast cell tumor. Dr Ross will be doing another surgery next week to remove more of the tissue around the area.
Update 6/7/17: Muffin packed her bags and moved to SC with her new Dad today. Congrats Muffin and Emory!
