Updates from Foster Home:
Pupdate 3: Izzy had luxating patellas (floating kneecaps) for which she had surgery on in mid-June. We were told that recovery would be 10 weeks or so. She was confined to a small area for that time, and it paid off: she is doing excellent. She is 11 years old, so she is not a high energy dog, but you can tell she is feeling great. She'll get bursts of energy outside and she likes to bark at the other dogs like she's the boss. She puts up with a lot of other animals (even kittens) rubbing on her face. Once in a while, she might try to snip at them, but she doesn't have any teeth so the kittens don't even move. She also puts up with my eight year old daughter who thinks she's a baby. Her temperament is awesome. She is definitely a lap sitter. She's not big on taking walks but will go potty when you take her outside. She has been pee pad trained and will use them if need be. We call her "Grandma". She doesn't act elderly but she has a little white face that looks aged. She would love to find a forever home with a loving family!
Pupdate 2: Izzy is doing great! You wouldn't know that she is 11 years old. She had knee surgery recently but her recovery has been going well. She has done swimming as rehab and has been released to be a normal dog. Her activity level is low anyway, but she definitely shows sign of her knees feeling better.
Pupdate 1: She is doing great after her surgery 4 weeks ago. I can tell she feels great because I have to keep her from running around and getting excited. Hopefully it will be a quick recovery she will start swim lessons on Monday to rehabilitate her back end and goes to the doctor in 2 weeks for x-rays.
