Help Tipsy
Thursday, 14 November 2013

Tipsy is a little cutie, a 4-year old maltese mix who was left tied to the shelter fence one night. We suspect her medical issues were more than her owner could handle.


She immediately required eye surgery to remove an ulcer effecting her left eye. All went well. She is also hearing impaired but right now, we are focused on her knees. This laid back little girl was diagnosed as needing major surgery to repair one or both of her back knees. As vet prepared for the knee repair, he discovered some arthritis and an old wound when her left hip was dislocated some time ago, leaving her with scar tissue. He repaired this and we are hopeful this will solve her problem without further surgery.


They may look like big brown sad eyes, but Tipsy is a cuddly, loving little dog - who gets along with cats, other small dogs and every human she meets.


She can sure use a Guardian Angel or two to support her medical needs. Every little bit will insure the best possible care for Tipsy.


She is available for adoption. Shelter will continue responsibility for her medical care, but we know she would heal faster in a happy, loving home environment.
