Rita is safe and happy in her foster home. She had her first vet check up and determined she has some hair loss, most likely caused by fleas. She is extremely underweight. Despite all of this Rita is very sweet. ( new update at bottom of page)
Her favorite things are eating and playing with her ball! She will be a gorgeous girl and live up to her name once she gains some much needed weight and regrows her coat.
As we figured she is heartworm positive. She is gaining weight, and her coat is growing in and will be gorgeous in a month or so!
We have seen tremendous turn around from strays that have been abandoned or dogs neglected by their owners, all they need is a little TLC and they look and act like a new dog. We know she has great potential and nothing is standing in this brave girls way now!
See the first two pictures below you can see her ribs, she is so skinny. Then the last few are current pictures ( 10/16) ... she is healthy and happy : )
