Jenny needs $ & rescue! Maltese/Havanese Mix: an adoptable dog in Morehead, KY
Small • Senior • Female Spayed/Neutered • Up-to-date with routine shots • Prefers a home without young children • Special Needs • Primary color: White or Cream
Jenny is a cuddler/lapdog. Not suitable for a home with young children or active animals. may do ok with another small, calm dog in the home. A bustling, busy home/family would not be a good fit for her. She’s in search of a quiet lifestyle where she can be a pampered princess. We are seeking donations for her vetting. please click the chip-in button below if you can help.
Update 7/26: Jenny is doing pretty good, ignores Cudjo the big dog but wanted to chase the smaller dogs, now she ignores them all as long they leave her alone. it just scares her because she cannot hear them and she cannot see very well with al that hair in front of her eyes. Will take her for a walk tonight, she is a little nervous in the house and I think a little walk will do her good. Update 7/19: when Jenny was surrendered, we were told she was 2-1/2 years old by the former owners.Here’s the report from Jenny’s vet visit: Jenny is 12+, has cataracts, is deaf, her limp is most likely arthritis. Though is is not a bad limp today. she is not eating well due to her teeth. Had trouble pooping, was really hard and constipated. We are having senior blood panel run in the morning and if OK I think she needs dental work. it did look like she had a spay scar. Well, we now understand why she has been snarky! she has every right! but in spite of it she does love to be held and cuddled, loves a gentle touch, walks well on a lead. hopefully her blood work will be OK. Today at vets she was around several dogs. she did get a little snarky but not really what I would call attack. I think she tries to warn other dogs away from her because she has arthritis. Jan’s Scooter got nose to nose with her once without any issue. then the second time she got by Scooter she did try to snap.
Please help poor Jenny! so far she’s had 2 different families (that we know of) and now she’s been dumped again! this poor little dog is only around 10 lbs, underweight, has a bum leg, and she’s also possibly deaf! so she’s a bit freaked out at the moment. Probably in pain from a possible luxating patella or old injury, plus she probably can’t hear other dogs approaching. Who wouldn’t be freaked out? Should she have to die due to poor breeding and people failing her? Can you help us help her? We’ll start with an x-ray which will be about $100. Will you sponsor her x-ray so we can see what’s wrong and determine if her leg can be fixed? UPDATE: Sponsor money received! THANK YOU! We have enough to get her in for an exa & x-ray. more info coming soon about her condition.
Jenny was turned in by her owner on 7-16-12 because of their dog allergies. she is believed to be around 2-3 years old and weighs around 10 lbs., probably a bit underweight. Jenny does not get along with other dogs (but we are trying to determine if this is an aggression or pain/fear issue). Her last owner said she is okay with kids but due to her size and health issues, we recommend a home with adults only or kids over 12. Jenny needs a new home where she will be the only dog. Probably best to also have no cats. she walks with a limp, possibly from an old injury. would need an xray to determine cause. she also appears to be deaf.
AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION IMMEDIATELY.
