Rosie has fully recovered, was recently spayed, and is now available for adoption. She recovered in foster care with a big dog that you can see her snuggling with in the photo gallery below. She is shy and timid, but warms up quickly. She is a love bug that will just need help with confidence from her owner. She is nearing the end of the quarantine period. If someone wants to adopt her, the quarantine transfers with her. She can go for walks, but can’t go to public events.
We found Rosie at the shelter in bad shape. She had a puncture wound in her chest through which her lungs were losing air. The shelter was unable to admit her to their medical program, so she was in grave danger.
We rescued Rosie and took her immediately to Southern California Veterinary Specialty Hospital. Her emergency care team suspected she had pneumonia and put her on antibiotics to bring her fever down. The origin of her puncture wound is still unknown, but it could be a dog or coyote bite; to be safe, she will be under a mandatory home quarantine for six months. Rosie has been released to the care of her foster family.
