Foster Update: “Rella is still getting used to the inside life but she is really good on leash. She always walks to my side. She has never had an accident in the house either. I think she will be a very low maintenance dog, low-key even after she comes out of her shell. ”
Meet Rella! Late 2018 Streetdog was informed of a family living on the streets of Memphis. While there were originally 9 puppies plus Mom & Dad it seemed there were only 4 of the puppies remaining with Mom & Dad. We snatched up the hairless little puppies (#sdfBabyElephants) right away and treated them for heavy mange. Mom & Dad, now #sdfRella & #sdfBabarBear, were much more street savvy and elusive. Took a bit of time but in January 2019, with a little bit of luck, a lot of patience and some Pirtles Chicken, our vigilant volunteers were finally able to pick the pair up.
Babar Bear and Rella will need to be spayed/neutered and were found to be positive for heartworms and ehrlichia (a tick-borne disease). We’re going to get him all fixed up just like their babies and ready for their forever homes!
Medical Update: Rella has completed Heartworm treatment and been spayed.
