Brunie - Capon Bridge, WV
This smiley girl is Brunie! Brunie is a female spayed hound/lab mix who is approximately 10 yrs old and weighs 50 lbs. She is housebroken but might do best in a home with kids over 12 yrs old.
Brunie hasn't always had reason to smile. She lived a life of pure hell in the deep south of the US. Tied outside with the chain wrapped so tightly around her neck that it grew into her neck - she suffered - day and night. She also was allowed to become infected with heartworm disease.
In spite of that, Brunie is a total sweetheart. She gets along fine with other dogs, but should be fed separately from others as she really is a "food hound". Brunie has been treated for heartworm disease, spayed, vaccinated, and is now on preventative, but the long term effects of the untreated disease has left her with a chronic cough and little tolerance for heavy exercise. Her heart is enlarged and one branch of her trachea is compromised. She really is looking for her hospice home for that reason. She would make someone a terrific couch potato and loving companion, but we cannot guarantee longevity - though she could live many years with loving care. We just don't know.
