|Rescue Me ID: 17-09-13-00147Zurich (female)|
Date into Rescue: 2/24/2017 Reason for being in rescue: Zurich was owned by a breeder who works with CPR. She noted that Zurich did not have the normal Bernese temperament and had some health challenges she did not want passed on and asked CPR if they would consider her for our SOS program. We appreciate breeders breeding only the best but also understanding that life is precious, all life, and that Zurich needed a chance. We're giving it to her. Zurich is indeed very special. Now that we've got a diagnosis, we're going to spend some time seeing if a home can be found and if not, Zurich will join the SOS ranks as our second largest very special lady. (Stella the Great Dane has top spot). Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC Special Needs? Zurich has a number of very special conditions: **Zurich has glomerula disease, common in her breed. For more information on this condition visit :http://www.pethealthnetwork.com/dog-health/dog-diseases-conditions-a-z/glomerular-disease-dogs . To help her, Zurich takes enalapril 20 mg once per day. Cost at 1-800-petmeds is .52 cents per day. **Zurich is very nervous and unsure of the world. She takes trazadone to 'take the edge off.' We've found that trazadone helps Zurich relax and enjoy her surroundings more. Cost of trazadone at Wal Mart is approximately $4 per month Weight: 77 lbs Height: About 28' at the shoulder Adoption Fee: $200 Fence needed? yes without exception What kind of home would be best for me? Zurich's best home will be one with a securely fenced in yard and a doggie door. She has chronic diarrhea from any sort of stressful situation and needs access outside regularly. However, she does NOT need to be an outside only dog and our contract states Zurich will be an inside girl. She needs to see and be around humans to continue her trust of us. She's come a long way in that department and she has farther to go. She would also benefit from a companion dog large or small. The most wonderful sight in the world I've seen with Zurich is her snuggled with a shih tzu sneaking a peek at us from her perch on Zurich's back. She has a nurturing side with puppies and dogs who have need. What is my personality like? Zurich has not one aggressive bone in her body. Despite her massive size, she is a gentle giant. Now that she has her trazadone we're even seeing a bit of a playful size. When it's time to come in our out, she is learning to bounce with excitement. It's a joy to watch her. Zurich is totally routine oriented. If you break her routine, if something changes, she gets nervous and that is when the diarrhea happens. She needs a very simple protein diet, chicken and rice works well. Right now we have her on grain free chicken and rice. She does not need canned food on it. She gets dry only with some water, no canned food it gives her the runs. She can have simple treats like milk bones or most chicken based treats. She can't have pupperoni, much beef based or rabbit. All of that causes massive diarrhea. Chicken hot dogs work especially to take her pills. Note she does not like the taste of the trazadone so we have to trick with yummy stuff. You can melt the trazadone in some food with water and that works. Zurich does love to eat but she can get a bit picky. I think she knows what upsets her tummy. How I act when I first meet new people: Extremely timid and shy. House trained? Zurich avoids peeing or pooping inside but because she sleeps inside at night, we're training her to hit her pee pads at night. She is really good about this. And yes it's one big pee pad. Fortunately her area is all solid floors that are easy to clean. A tile floor would be ideal. Or a doggie door where she can go out at night into a securely fenced area. My age: Estimated birth date 1/26/2012 Please note - we do not ship dogs. If you are interested in adopting, please take a look at the distance between the foster home location and your location and make sure you are willing to make that trip. To apply, please visit our webpage at www.carolinapoodlerescue.org and visit the tab on the left that directions you to the online application. Please note that when screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, color, age, etc. Others here may be a better fit for you. It is very difficult to get to know a living animal from a picture and a short description. Since we are constantly getting in new dogs, this may be a dog not in our listings yet. We want you to be very happy with your new companion and will make suggestions based on what you tell us about you. (Less)
