Long Overdue Foster Pet Updates

Ziggy the deaf pit bull is doing well.  He's attending Rally classes each week, and enjoys finding yet another way to earn treats.  I've also discovered that he and Jefferson are good playmates.  They love to play chase and wrestle with each other.

Chloe the pit bull is my girl.  She's like the best dog ever.  She started heartworm treatments and is now on strict rest for eight weeks.  She's pretty lazy though so she's happy to lay around on the couch all day.

Ace the deaf Dogo Argentino mix is now adopted!  He went to a home with another dog who is a therapy dog, and his new owner plans to train Ace to be a therapy dog as well.

Fanny the Basset Hound mix did really well in her beginning agility class.  She loved going to class, but had to cut her beginners class session short because she found her forever home!  She's even happier now to be in a home where she gets all the attention.

Maggie the deaf Old English Sheepdog is getting ready to get on a plane.  She has some aggression issues that need special help, so she's going to be traveling to Minnesota, to Midwest Old English Sheepdog Rescue.  Pilots 'N Paws will be helping her to get to her final destination.

Jefferson the Shepherd/Lab mix is his same silly self.  He has been to the vet twice in the past two weeks because he has caused his tail to start bleeding by wagging it so much.  He can't help it, he's just a happy guy!  He loves to play and wrestle with Maggie and with Ziggy - they are his two best friends.

And that's all the time we have for updates today!  More updates coming soon!

Just something to think about....: My old dog wagged her tail a lot and it never started to bleed... Until it did one day when she was around 9 years old. After a lot of thinking, I decided to change her food (a few weeks earlier I had changed into "senior food") and I also gave her extra doses of essential fatty acids (viacutan). Her tail healed and I didn´t have a problem after that! And she kept wagging her tail until the end. Good luck with Jefferson!

love the updates.... laughed at Jefferson - at the shelter where I volunteer we always called it "Happy Tail Syndrome"- almost ALL the pitties would go around with bandaged tails (yeah, because they're so fierce, wagging their tails so HARD is scary, right?).
