Meet Rosie! A beautiful Hound-mix, Rosie came to North Shore Animal League from a shelter partner in Tennessee when she was three-months-old. Veterinarians at our Pet Health Centers observed that she was exceedingly thin, very nervous, and was having fainting spells. She was diagnosed with a severe heart murmur, but Rosie’s symptoms and behavior suggested much more was going on in her skinny body.
Further testing and observation showed that she has heart disease, digestive tract issues, and regenerative anemia. Her doctors have put her on a number of medications for her physical ailments and the Pet Behavior Team here is working to address her fears and anxiety. Luckily for Rosie, she has the Pet Sponsorship Program to ensure that her emotional and medical needs will be met – even if it’s for the rest of her life.
Thank you for sponsoring Rosie, for all her problems she is a very sweet girl who wants to enjoy her life!
