Successfully completed heartworm treatment, takes Apoquel for allergies
Sweet Georgia Girl
This sweet girl most likely has had a rough life. She was found as a stray on May 18, 2018 with no collar, tag or chip, and no one came looking for her. The shelter is a very rural one in GA with only one employee who does everything there: pick ups, intakes, feeding, cleaning the kennels…you get the picture. So, there is little-to-no time for vetting or bathing. However, the sole employee felt so badly for this girl, that she managed to get her to a vet who gave her an antibiotic injection to try to help her skin heal.
Welcome to Florida Brittany Rescue, Your Life is About to Change, Sweet Girl
With no website or Facebook page for this shelter, it's all word-of-mouth to save the dogs there. Another rescue group near FBR headquarters was at this shelter at the end of June picking up other dogs for their rescue, and spotted this cute little girl running around the exercise yard sniffing, pointing birds and wagging her tail, and they thought of Florida Brittany Rescue. They knew she needed real TLC after realizing that, without that care, her extreme skin condition made her unadoptable. That was further worsened by her myriad other conditions: heartworm positive, broken teeth requiring extraction, a much needed spay…where does one begin?
Florida Shining Star
When she arrived on July 7th, it was so shocking to see what terrible shape she was actually in; the photos really didn't show the extent of her condition. We gave her two baths and cleaned her ears, and she loved every minute of it and never gave one moment of complaint. Her nails were so mangled and curled under, but she let us clip them without a struggle or care -- she's just so happy that she can now run around without the discomfort or impediment of those nails. It was very obvious she was used as a breeding dog.
The shelter named her Aubrey, but when we met her, we changed her name to Nova which means: New beginning and the brightest star in the sky. Her character and personality is larger than life, and she has won all of our hearts here at Florida Brittany Rescue.
Nova Update And Ideal Family
Nova has gained weight and is now at a svelte and petite 32lbs. She is 13" tall from her shoulders, and we're thrilled that she's growing back a lustrous, soft coat. She graduated with flying colors from her Heartworm treatment. She is also feeling great and has healed completely from her spay and dental -- she is now ready to come home to you!
Nova would love to belong to a forever family who wants a loyal and loving dog. A big yard with a secure physical fence with lots of room to run, roam and hunt is a must, as Nova is not a leash-walking dog. She can spend hours and hours hunting lizards, so a home with a doggy door would be great -- She is trusted indoors and outdoors. She is one strong survivor...and she's healed quickly from everything, so that she could be as ready as possible to be the best loyal and loving girl to her forever family!
