From the Foster:

 

this sweet girl has been around all kinds of dogs. She is very well socialized, good with the big dogs and little dogs alike. She does tend to be a little vocal when she sees people or dogs passing by and she gets whiney when separated from humans or her pack (kenneled or gated). She loves car rides and is super easy-going about her insulin injections and meds - even if you've never given these to dogs before, its very easy, and nothing to be concerned about. The only stringent component of her care is the timing of her insulin injections which is every 12 hours. 80% of the time she is just being lazy and looking elegant, 15% of the time she’s acting like she’s a Velcro dog and then 5% of the time she is running around trying to figure out what everybody else is doing. Loves walks, sunbathing, cuddles and car rides. 

Through the course of my veterinary care at Secondhand Hounds it was found that I have diabetes mellitus, hypothyroidism, and mature cataracts. Luckily, my foster and the doctors at Secondhand Hounds and BluePearl took great care of me, and I am now ready to find my forever home! I recently had surgery for my cataracts, and I can see much better now. Future adopters should know that due to my multiple endocrine diseases, I will need to continue to work with a primary veterinarian, as well as an internal medicine specialist (I am currently under the care of Dr. Mazepa at BluePearl.) To manage my diabetes, my adopter will need to administer insulin everyday, as well as monitor my glucose levels with the guidance of a veterinarian. I am also on medication for my hypothyroidism. It is recommended that I have a recheck exam and labwork (CBC, chemistry, UA, Fructosamine and T4) every 6 months with an internal medicine specialist.
