Willow is not yet ready for adoption. We are still evaluating her personality and addressing all of her medical needs. An email notification will be sent when she becomes ready for adoption. If you wish to receive the notification, please sign up for our mailing list at the top of the front page of our website. Adoption fees are set at the time a dog goes available and applications can only be submitted at that time. Please follow our website and social media pages for updates on Willow!
This week we took in Willow, a 14-week-old puppy, who has been diagnosed with Addison’s Disease. She has been in emergency care since Thursday where she was dropped off by a breeder. The hospital contacted us to take her into our care.
Addison's Disease is typically characterized as a disorder in which the adrenal glands don't produce enough hormones. Specifically, the adrenal glands produce insufficient amounts of the hormone cortisol and sometimes aldosterone, too. When the body is under stress (e.g. fighting an infection), this deficiency of cortisol can result in a life threatening Addisonian crisis characterized by low blood pressure.
Willow started her morning in the ER and was transferred to an internal medicine vet today. Her red blood cell count is very low. Her levels are proven to be unstable if she is taken off fluids. She is a complicated case due to how young she is, but we will do everything we can to help her.
She is SUPER tiny at only 5 and a half pounds and we hope to help her gain some weight. She is sweet as can be...all she wants to do is give kisses and be held. Her emergency bills are adding up very quickly. The only way we can help this sweet girl is with your generous donations. Please consider donating!
We greatly appreciate any and all donations….$2000 will help us provide Willow with some basic essentials, such as food, bowls, and a harness, as well as help us cover some of her hefty vet bills.
