Furry Fursday: Meet Mildred

November 17, 2016


Mildred is a 10 year old female boxer who was brought to the Humane Society as a stray in July. She is an extremely sweet girl, but her initial condition was not quite as sweet.

When she arrived, she was extremely emaciated to the point that she had to be carried in by a Good Samaritan and could hardly stand up on her own.  Mildred had several issues, including Heartworm disease, anemia and a tick borne disease called Ehrlichiosis. She was extremely skinny and was not eating. After having radiographs taken, it was discovered that Mildred has a large nail in her stomach.  To make matters worse, she had been eating a large amount of grass in order to overcome her hunger which buried the nail and made it irretrievable. After weeks and weeks of medical attention, Mildred’s stomach and intestines were finally free of grass and the nail.  She has since been spayed and some of her treatment, but the Humane Society is still working with her to get her back to optimal health.

In the meantime, Mildred awaits a forever family who will hold her hand, or paw, and give her lots of love throughout her medical journey and for the rest of her life! She is still playful and jumps around to the best of her ability; and she is full of so much love. Lots of hugs and kisses and smiles are guaranteed when you adopt this special girl!
