Mercedes - Foster Needed
Mercedes needs a foster! This princess needs someone to spring her from boarding while she waits for her happily ever after. Fostering is fun and free! Check out our foster page for more info!
Everyone meet our new classy gal, Mercedes. Mercedes was at the right place at the right time when Streetdog Foundation was attempting an in-the-field rescue of a pup we were alerted to outside of an automotive repair shop.
Long story short, Mercedes had a family that didn't have resources or the time to care for her so they surrendered her to a local emergency center, where her fate looked grim. Luckily, Streetdog Foundation just so happened to be bringing a newly rescued dog, Beamer, into the emergency center for after hours care and we met Mercedes. It was love at first site. Not to mention, she is the female look alike twin of Beamer. We just knew that fate had intervened here so Mercedes is now a part of the family.
She is a 3 year old Staffordshire/Terrier Mix. She was diagnosed with heartworms and has started some oral antibiotic treatment for that. Our vet is also a little skeptical as to whether or not Mercedes may be becoming a mother soon. Right now it is still too early to tell so we will be keeping a close eye on her.
For now Mercedes is resting and acclimating to her new life. She's a little shy, but so sugar sweet to all she meets. She is super smart as well and is already learning cute tricks like sit and shake! Soon she'll move to a foster home when she's medically cleared and it will be all uphill from here for her. We will make sure she receives any and all medical care she needs regarding the heartworms and everything else she'll need to get healthy and fully adoptable through us.
