UPDATE 2/23/2018:

Foster girl June Bug came into FBV’s care on January 19th. If you don’t remember, June was surrendered from a breeder. She had just lost a puppy. When we took her for her vet appointment, June Bug medically checked out perfect except for a large mass on her back leg and some nasty discharge from having a puppy. We decided to go ahead and spay her right away and remove the mass. We had the mass tested and it came back as low grade mass cell cancer. The best option was to wait and watch the area while it healed and pray we got it all. Fast forward to two weeks later and the area where the tumor was removed stayed swollen even with antibiotics and other medications. We had a sample sent off after it was apparent the area was not getting any better. We received the results and the cancer is in her lymph nodes. We are now in the process of scheduling an appointment with an Oncologist to see what the best plan of action is going to be for her going forward. As we are hoping for a good diagnosis, we will not know until she is able to see the specialist. We want to let everyone know June Bug is not in pain and is still acting like a happy go lucky dog! 

Please give a warm welcome to our newest foster girl, June, aka June “Bug!” June was retired from the same breeder as foster girl Grace. June is 6 years old and is currently laying her head down in VA. June had a premature baby on 1-13-2018. We have done her initial vetting making sure she does not have any other puppies; however, June has some nasty discharge so we ran a bunch of tests and everything was normal. With that being said, we decided to go ahead and spay June to get to the bottom of what’s going on. June also has a large mass on one of her back legs and will be having this removed and biopsied. Her foster mom says she is a gentle soul and learning how to live in a home. She is currently living with 3 other dogs and is managing well with them. June loves to give kisses! She is learning the ropes quickly and will still need some work before she can go up for adoption.
