Meet Shey

Hey! Get to know me, Shey! My birthday is coming up and it'll be great to PAWty in the comforts of my new home. I will be 6 years old in March and am a petite, pretty Pit Bull mix. I was found as a stray, but happened to be chipped. However, my first family rehomed me, and my most recent family couldn't be located. I wasn't in the best shape though, so it's probably for the best. I was skinny, dirty and needing medical care. I got that and then some here! I'm feeling so much better. I can be anxious, but I love getting affection from people. I am sweet girl, love to get belly rubs and maybe play with some toys. A home with kids over 10 years old is recommended for me. I can be unsure of some handling, and I prefer to be left alone while eating. I love food and at times can be grabby when it comes to yummy snacks. I eat out of a slow feeder here, and it might be good to continue doing so as my food is gone as fast as it arrived! I did not mind meeting a cat or a dog here. I was off leash with both and behaved appropriately. I wasn't much into playing with another dog, but we coexisted well and just enjoyed each other's company.

Medical: Shey has tested positive for Anaplasmosis during her time at HSHA. Anaplasmosis is a tick-borne disease (similar to Lyme) caused by the infectious bacterial organism Anaplasma phagocytophilum. Infection often causes lameness, joint pain, fever, lethargy, and anorexia (lack of appetite), or a serious condition called thrombocytopenia which causes low platelet counts and can effect blood clotting. Shey has received treatment with 3-4 weeks of oral antibiotic to help clear the infection. We recommend speaking with your veterinarian about the condition and following their recommendations for ongoing care and routine monitoring (which may include annual blood testing).
