Annie’s update June 2020

Since Annie joined the Sanctuary, her progress, adaptation to the environment and the boost in confidence were nothing but consistent.

Two days ago, however, her behavior changed. Annie suddenly became defensive with other dogs over the veranda. She started to follow the caregiver around and cry. Puppies and Leila became a little bit fearful of her.

Today Annie was taken to the vet for the blood tests and to check if there a health problem that might have caused her sudden behavioral change.

Her behavior also changed with people. She became more attached to the caregiver and continuously following her around. Before she was enjoying people’s company, but now she looks like she needs it.

Annie hopped in the car and went to the vet. She was a good girl at the vets, where the blood sample was taken for the CBC test. An ultrasound was performed as well. We have not received an official report yet, but we know that she has chrystals in her bladder. Her CBC test was a little better than the previous one. As if the above was not enough, Annie started to have milk and was diagnosed with phantom pregnancy as well.

The latter explained some of her behaviors nesting on the veranda and asking dogs for more space than usual.

We are not surprised by her rather poor state of health. After all, when volunteers collected her from that beach, she was underweight, dehydrated, and covered in ticks and fleas. It would be rather unusual to expect no further complications.

However, we are determined to bring her to health and find her loving home when she is ready.

Annie’s is no one’s dog, and that means that she is in a way everyone’s dog. Please give Annie a chance never to go back to that sad life of a stray dog.

Annie’s monthly expenses are 80 euros, and due to her poor health state, we expect the extra cost for vet bills. If you can help sweet little Annie, please donate using the details below.
