Update 3/2/17: We are thrilled to report that Amina is heartworm negative! She was treated for intestinal worms and ringworm, received flea and heartworm preventatives, and spayed today. Doc says she is about 8 months old. Once the ringworm heals and is no longer contagious, she will be off to a foster home. We probably won't have this pup around for long because she could not be any sweeter. She is about 35 pounds and not expected to get much larger.
Amina is a young pup who was found wandering around a neighborhood without her mom. A woman took her in, but had a lot of animals already, so they reached out to Streetdog for help after searching for her family for 3 weeks. When our volunteer picked her up, she noticed that she was super calm. She briefly lived with a variety of other dogs ranging in size from 12 pounds to 120! She has seen cats and did not try to chase them, and she loves riding in the car.
