22 month old brindle girl
« on: April 15, 2010, 10:58:13 AM »
I just got a call from the other vet in our little town (not the one I use).  They have a female boxer who is in need of a new home.  Her owner is throwing in the towel on her care.  I understand the owner had hoped to breed her, but her uterus prolapsed.  She was spayed a month ago but the prolapse never receeded?  (I'm not sure just what all this means yet) At this point, the vet tech explained all she needs is a simple surgery to remove the prolapsed tissue but the owner is ready to relinquish her since he can't afford it/seems to have just given up on her.  They called me. (a friend from my shelter board gave them my name)  CRAP!  I so want to help this poor girl but I'm pretty sure Dave would REALLY pitch a fit.  If nothing else I would love to just giver her a good place and proper care for her recovery and then find her a forever home.  The vet is doing the surgery at 'cost' and our shelter emergency fund is helping with paying whatever costs there are.
They tell me she's very socialable, does well in the crates, doesn't go into a panic when other dogs walk by, etc.  Has been very well mannered when she's been there.  Anyone need a nice boxer girl?  :fingerscrossed:
The timing on this is exceptionally ironic, eh?

I would love to just take her after the surgery to get her recovered.  She deserves to be somewhere where she will get that at least. ( and more) I'm going to pull out all the stops to see if we can get this girl in a good home, bless her heart.   :fingerscrossed:

Well, surprizingly enough, Dave didn't go ballistic when I told him I thought we should at least give this girl a place to regain her health.  He just said, 'don't let her become a permanent resident'.  I really don't need another boxer, especially a bitch.  So I HOPE I can find her a good home.  Keep your fingers crossed!

I had a little foster girl last year that had a prolapsed uterus. We had her spayed and it took almost five months for the prolapse to shrink enough to reinsert. The prolapse had been left out for some time before we got her so we think it took longer because of that but it takes awhile for the decrease in hormone levels after spay to allow shrinkage of the tissue so that it can either recede on it's own or in this case we had the vet reinsert and staple it. We were so relieved because we really wanted to avoid surgery because it  comes with signifigant risk of incontinence and should be done by a surgeon with experience with this type of correction. I have before/after photos if you want I will PM to you.

Yes, I would like to see the photos!  The vet who is doing the surgery is a recent grad. so I HOPE she knows what she is doing!  It will be much harder to place a incontinant dog for sure! 
No, I CAN NOT keep her!  I promised Dave we would only foster her.  I know my limits and two is fine for us right now.  We want to be able to travel when we want and getting a sitter for 2 is much easier than getting a sitter for 3!

I went to visit Fancy, the boxer girl with the prolapse yesterday afternoon.  She's a very petite boxer girl and very nicely marked!  She's thin but nothing some good groceries won't fix.  She's UTD on all shots and has no other health issues other than the prolapse.  It has receded GREATLY but still has some more to go.  The prolapse tissue was as big as a softball when she first arrived at the vet 6 weeks ago and it is now down to the size of a pingpong ball.  The vet has decided not to perform any surgery just yet, but to wait and see if the tissue shrinks further in order to avoid surgery that could cause an incontenance issue.  I'm relieved about that.  I'm going to pick her up on Monday and help her heal and hopefully find her a home.  PLEASE spread the word among your own connections.  I would help with transportation if she were to go to a good home in another state.  I'll post pictures of her when I get her here on Monday.  She's a CUTE little girl and VERY mild mannered and sweet.  Thank you, Toby'sMomma for sending me the info!  It was very helpful!

Anytime! This is sounding very positive, the size of a ping pong ball is good.   :yes:  I can't wait to see pics and I love the name Fancy.  :smitten:
