********************************************************************************************
Don't let her looks fool you - this girl is ready to go and looking for an active home. Based on her appearance and teeth, our vet guesses Phoebe is around 2 years old. She weighs about 50lbs but is a bit thin, so she's eating three meals per day.

Phoebe came to us a few weeks back when she was hit by a car and her owners never came forward to get her. She had surgery to remove her front left leg and bounced back very quickly.

Phoebe is a pack animal and immediately bonded to the other dogs in her foster home. You can find her piled up with 3 or 4 of them on the couch, or playing tug-of-war with two of them. We would really like to find her a home with another younger, active dog or two. She likes to rough house with the dogs in her foster home, who range in size from 50-80lbs.

She does need some further training, especially as she likes to try to chase cars, which explains her being struck by a vehicle already. Phoebe likes to jump on people, but she already knows "sit" and is working on learning that "3 on the floor" is the behavior that will be rewarded.

Her energy level isn't super high, so long as she gets some daily exercise like walks and playing in a fenced yard with another canine pal or two, she will do great. She loves to cuddle with people, too.

She is house trained and crate trained, though she prefers to be with her people and would likely do well in a dog-safe area of the home.

As far as her health is concerned, Phoebe does have a partial cataract in her left eye (from trauma of being struck by a car, or birth defect) which will need to be looked after long term, but she can still see about 50% out of that eye. She had an elevated liver value in her bloodwork, most likely because of the trauma, so she is on 1000mg of milk thistle each day. Since there is more weight being put on her front leg, we also suggest starting her on a glucosamine product like GlycoFlex3 to help prevent arthritis.
