Meet Betty (aka Miss Betty White)

Anita is a very special girl that requires a very special adopter.

A rural mail carrier became aware of 2 young stray dogs, one that from a distance appeared to be very seriously injured. It was soon discovered Anita was trying to protect her dying brother Archie. Several days after their rescue, sadly, Archie crossed the rainbow bridge. Anita displayed unwavering loyalty to and was deeply bonded to Archie.
We were fortunate to place her into a loving foster home where she befriended a shy, male dog who had also experienced neglect and abuse. Despite her rough start to life, Anita is an amazingly loving, nurturing dog.

In November Anita started displaying symptoms suggestive of a severe infection. Multiple veterinary visits and hospitalizations later, this innocent girl has been diagnosed with hepatozoonosis, a rare tick-borne disease often missed by veterinarians. After several months of various treatments we are happy to report Anita's body is responding positively to medication. However, it is necessary for her to remain on this antibiotic therapy for a minimum of 2 years. The cost of this medication and any required monitoring has been generously sponsored/donated to help ensure Anita will always receive everything needed to manage this treatable disease.

It is certain that Anita will bring immeasurable love and joy to her forever home and family. She has already suffered too much pain and grief in her young life. But over and over she has proven she is a fighter, a survivor!

Anita is 11 months old and is a terrific size weighing a perfect 42lbs. She is living happily in her foster home with 5 other dogs and a cat. She is great with kids too! One thing we have been repeatedly told about Anita is that she is wicked smart!

We recognize Anita's medical needs require a higher level of commitment. But what an incredible opportunity to make a difference in her life and share the journey of this sweet, precious, very deserving soul.

Anita is spayed, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and has received a ProHeart injection.
