Meet Zoe! This sweet girl ended up at a rural shelter in TX. At 77 pounds, she was absolutely emaciated so we suspect she's been wandering for a while. Thankfully Zoe was rescued by a good samaritan when her stray hold was up at the shelter, before she would have been put to sleep. They got her to the vet and kept her safe and are fostering her for GPMR.
No surprise to any of us, Zoe tested positive for intestinal parasites, which have been treated, and unfortunately she tested positive for heartworms. With her emaciated state, she'll need a couple of months to gain enough weight to be healthy enough for treatment. So she will be on medical hold at least until February while we get that all taken care of.
Zoe seems to be fine with medium to large size dogs, but we're not yet sure about homes with small dogs or cats. Right now she hasn't been around any children so we'll be assessing that once she is feeling better. The vet estimates her at about 2 years of age.
Zoe is being fostered in Arlington, TX.
