Heidi is available for adoption! She had her recheck vet appointment at the end of June where she was weighed, had her thyroid blood work rechecked and ear examined. It is hard to believe that this girl came to us weighing 103 lbs but now is 74.5 lbs! Turns out that Heidi’s current dose of thyroid medicine is working great, which means there is no need to modify the dosage. The biggest reveal was that BOTH of her eardrums are now completely grown back!!! She no longer needs her daily ear flushes followed by drying and ear drops. In order to keep Heidi’s ears healthy, her forever family will have to flush her ears 1-2 times a week for the rest of her life to ensure her eardrums stay healthy.
Once Heidi was given the okay from the vet, we filled out a questionnaire on Heidi’s behavior, personality, training, medical info, and other misc items. Heidi had a photo shoot so the Golden Bond Rescue website would have current pictures of her. We also had fun doing a write-up for their web site to introduce Heidi to potential adopters.
Now we’re waiting to receive applications from potential adopters who match Heidi’s needs. After reviewing the applications we rate them and do a meet and greet with our favorite to see if they would make a great forever home for Heidi.
We will be sad when Heidi is no longer with us but we’ll be so happy knowing she has a great family to call her own. Getting the next foster dog will also be a great distraction! I just remind myself that when one foster dog leaves, another dog will be given the same opportunity to get their forever family.
