We were referred to the area Pound by a local pet rescue group about an Australian Shepherd that they could not take because she was considered "at risk" due to having epilepsy and seizures. The pound had her under 24/7 observation and, if she had seized while there, would have had to put her down. We rescued her and did all we could medically to relieve the distress and frequency of her seizures. (Anyone with a seizure dog should feel free to contact us about treatment options and places to acquire the medicines at greatly reduced cost.)
We were so very blessed by having her in our family. She was so worth the "risk" and any costs we incurred to help her. Readers ~ remember this because not all dogs are perfect and sometimes the ones with weaknesses appreciate being loved and cared for more than most... and they show it with the biggest hearts in loving you back and their genuine appreciation of Life! We put together a power point presentation telling the wonderful story (abbreviated) of her life. Some of the pages are included here as pictures.
