Meet our newest senior girl Isabelle. We are unsure of Isabelle's age and she isn't telling. She was a stray that was treated for heartworm by a local shelter. The shelter reached out to IGRR realizing she needed some extra help finding her forever home.
Isabelle is a quiet girl that needs another dog or two to make her feel safe when her two-legged family is away from the home. She has some anxiety issues and can't be left in a kennel but she does well in the home when foster mom and dad are at work for 8-9 hours a day.
Even though Isabelle's hearing isn't the best, she has some anxiety about thunderstorms as well. She is currently taking medication daily for her anxiety and requires some additional medication during thunderstorms. She looks great in her thundershirt which helps too. Since in rescue, she has gotten stronger physically and mentally. She eats well and occasionally likes to flirt with the younger boys in the house.
Isabelle is doing so much better. She is now very comfortable in our house when we are home and away. She shows little sign of anxiety and her fear of thunderstorms is very easy to control. She is a very loving dog and seeks the attention of humans and actually initiates play with the boy dogs in the house. She had a second visit to the vet to check her lumps and bumps and have a chest x-ray. Everything looked good for a girl of her age. She also had an irritating lump “de-bulked” from her eyelid. It may return, but in the mean time should feel much better. Her foster family has grown to love her but she would love to have a family to call her own.
Meet 10 year old King. This boy is a retired stud dog who has lived most of his life outdoors. He lacked socialization as a very young dog so he finds people kind of scary. He is adapting to living indoors but is still very shy.
He is looking for a quite home with another confident dog and without small children. A fenced in yard is also required to keep him safe as well. He is a very handsome boy that deserved to be loved in senior years.
