Lovely Izzy was picked up as a stray and brought to a shelter in the south. Unfortunately, the shelter that she arrived at lacks the resources to meet the needs of many of the animals in their care. As a result, dogs with medical needs often do not receive the care and attention they need in order to move forward. When another rescue heard about Izzy's situation, they began networking her with the hope of helping this sweet senior lady find a loving forever home. Recognizing that Izzy was out of options but deserved the dignity of living out her golden years in comfort and safety, we stepped up and welcomed Izzy into the MAGSR family.
Izzy's eyes tell a story of their own. They tell the story of pain and neglect while also crying out for comfort and love. Izzy is learning to trust her people; it is evident that kind hands have not always been used with her. With patience and gentleness, Izzy slowly warms up and will ask for love and attention. She loves to slowly slink over to your lap for head scratches and love. As Izzy did not receive the medical attention she needed prior to her arrival at MAGSR, she will require additional support in order to move forward. Izzy will do best in a calm and stable household where she can remain on the first floor as Izzy's body is simply not as strong as her mind at this time. Diagnosed as heartworm positive, Izzy will need to keep her activity limited over the next few months as her body heals. Although Izzy has clearly not always experienced kindness, she remains a gentle and affectionate dog. If Izzy sounds like the right match for your household, please inquire about her today.
