Grandby (Grannie) is a just a little old lady. A shelter received Grannie after she was found lost on the streets in Manhattan. An exam showed that Grannie was blind and had glaucoma. She was advertised by the shelter as in need of a foster or adoptive home. A volunteer with Blind Dog Rescue Alliance volunteered to take her in as a foster dog. When her foster mom took her to the vet it was found that she was under weight, anemic, dehydrated, had skin and nail infections, mammary tumors, glaucoma, significant arthritis and a serious heart condition. Immediately she was given a bath (which she loved!), a nail trim and medications for the various issues. Within a few days in her foster home, her coat started to look more shiny, she had a big appetite and was gaining weight. After a review of her medical records and discussion by the Board about her serious heart condition, Blind Dog Rescue Alliance decided to keep Grannie as a forever foster instead of putting her up for adoption. Grannie is thought to be between 12 and 15 years old. She was a mom and had puppies at some point in her life. She was found alone and blind and hungry on the streets. But today has started wagging when her foster mom comes home, loves a back scratch, is eating any food she is offered, and spends time resting on her favorite pillow bed. She will be on long term and daily medications for her heart and arthritis.
Grandby is forever in our hearts.
