Jenni is a sheltie mix found as a stray. She was skin and bones and reeked of manure smell. She had horrific periodontal disease that had to be causing her great pain. If that wasn't enough, she turned out to be diabetic. No matter how much she may have found out on her own to eat, her body couldn't make use of the food, leaving her skin and bones. But it didn't affect her spirit. Her tail was always wagging and she loved everyone she met.
Today she is truly a gem. Her diabetes is controlled with insulin twice a day. Her dental work has been done (including removal of twigs and other debri embedded in her gum line). She is full of life and energy. Her insulin can be bought at Walmart, and her special food is about the same cost as any premium dog food you may find at the pet food stores. Jenni gets her glucose measured about every 4-6 weeks at the vet, but this probably could be done at home as well.
At approximately six years old, Jenni is learning lots of new things. She knows how to use a doggie door. She gets along fine with cats and dogs and kids. She would probably do better in a home with older kids who know not to give her treats as she is on a restricted diet provided by the vet. She has learned to play with toys. She sleeps on a doggie bed at the foot of her human foster moms bed. She does okay on a leash, just needs a little more work. She responds very well to being corrected for things like counter surfing or jumping on you.
And she continues to love everyone she meets! She is very vigilant, observant, and really wants to please.
