Lucy - ref 397 - 11yr old ShihTzu - HOMED

Postby kaydoyle » Thu Sep 20, 2012 5:46 pm

REF 397. Lucy is a surrendered ShihTzu. She is eleven years old but she is bright, sparky and a sweet little thing. The owner tells us that she is good with older children and friendly towards other dogs. She enjoys her comfort and loves attention.

As a surrender she was in danger of being put to sleep.

As I write this, Lucy is curled up asleep on the sofa next to me. I collected this little lady today and when I opened the car door she just hopped in and settled down. She is great in the car. I can only describe her as a little angel on four legs. She has the most beautiful temperament, very placid and easy going. When she came into the house she had a good look around both inside and out and settled straight away. I decided to give her a bath - it was effortless. She just stood still and took it all in her stride. She's the first dog to come into the house that Ollie has completely ignored and also is not in the least bit jealous of her. I had to leave them for about 2 hours this afternoon and usually I would put a foster in the kitchen while Ollie would stay in the sitting room on his perch (back of sofa). Not so today. Lucy just made herself comfy on the sofa and the two went off to sleep. She is totally house trained. I took her for a walk this evening and no surprise she was great on the lead. All in all this is one beautiful little dog.

Lucy is beautiful and she looks so calm and content. I am so delighted she is safe and cared for. A pound is no place for her, don't know how anyone could give her up. She has landed on four paws anyway :D

Lady Lucy had a great night. Not a peep out of her. When we were going to bed she was sound asleep on the sofa so I decided to leave her there. When my husband came down at 7.30 this morning she was still asleep.
I came down an hour later to find her still there. I was greeted with a wagging tail and a pep in her step. She had no accidents and after being fed, went outside to do her business . Then she hopped back up on the sofa for another snooze. Obviously she has royal blood as a bed in the kitchen doesn't seem to be her thing. She'd much rather the comfort of a sofa.
I also discovered she is happy to see children as two neighbours children called to see her and her tail never stopped wagging.
I don't know how she ended up in the pound She certainly didn't deserve that. Anyway she's safe now in the hands of DID and will get the home she truly deserves.

That's really wonderful news thank you for giving her a loving foster home. I'm sure there is a new forever mammy or daddy somewhere out there :)

Delighted for this lovely little lady landing on her paws with Ollie and Mary and Ciaran......maybe they might join the failed fosterers gang.

After my last update on Saturday, I took Lucy to the park for a walk. After just 5 minutes of walking, she collapsed and her breathing became very shallow. Fortunately, I had seen it happen before to my last dog and I guessed it was her heart that had caused it. She lay on her side for about 20 seconds but after that sat up and started to breath normally. I sat with her for another 5 minutes after which she just got up and walked away as if nothing had happened. I had also noticed the night before that she had a swelling on her right hand side. For the rest of the weekend she was in great form and even walked on Sunday for about 20 minutes with no trouble at all. It was felt best to bring her to Terenure Veterinary Clinic today and she is being kept in overnight. It was discovered that she has a slight heart murmur and is being given a heart tablet which should rectify the problem. The swelling on her right side would appear to be a fatty deposit but a sample is being taken just to be on the safe side. She is in good form and is eating and drinking well. She certainly didn't have any adverse reaction to her "episode" and in fact when my husband came down this morning, he found her asleep on the kitchen table :o I had left a chair out from the table as she likes to go under the table and snooze. Little did I think she'd use the chair as a step ladder!! She will more than likely be home again tomorrow and I will update again on her progress. Here's a few photos and as you'll see, she's a gorgeous little girl :)
