She's been waiting over a year for a forever home.... Name: Peggy 2661
Age: 9 years
Color: Red Dapple
Size: Small Tweenie – 13 lbs.
Peggy came to us from the West LA shelter in early 2012. Not much was known about her past as she was a stray. However, we did realize a few things right away-- she was 10 pounds overweight and was suffering from a terrible systemic yeast infection.
Fast forward to today. Peggy has made an incredible turnaround both in health and in spirits. She is wonderful. Her true and sassy personality is shining through. She is no longer shy and lethargic. Through diet and exercise, she's lost the extra weight. After blood panels revealed hypothyroidism, we were able to tackle her yeast issues more effectively. We couldn't be happier with her incredible progress. Her coat is soft and shiny now!
Peggy has been living in a house full of foster brother and sister doxies in harmony for the past year. She plays with her foster sister (a dachshund mix) every morning! Peggy is very vocal about her one true passion-- food. This is a great thing in the rescue world. No fussy eater here!
