12/03/17 – Memorial
On Wednesday evening, Becky’s health deteriorated through the night and she was not aware of her surroundings. Her foster home took Becky to an emergency vet, where they helped ease her suffering. She crossed the bridge with her foster family by her side. AABR pulled Becky from the shelter knowing that she didn’t have much time due to a suspected brain tumor. Her foster family provided Becky with a loving home for her last days and made sure she did not die alone in the shelter. Rest In Peace, Becky.

Becky will be seeing the vet this Saturday. Sadly, she spends all day pacing or walking in circles. Becky also paces through the night. She has some vision and balance issues, but has a good appetite.  Becky also enjoys being cuddled. We will post an update with the results of her vet appointment.

Becky was found as a stray and no owner came forward for her. She is reported to be a very sweet girl. Becky was evaluated with another dog at the shelter. She greeted the dog appropriately and then was uninterested. The shelter noted that Becky has a head tilt and has been walking in circles. She will need evaluated by a vet to determine the extent of her medical needs. Because of the possible severity of her condition, we were not sure we could find a placement to give Becky a chance. Thankfully, a wonderful foster home agreed to get Becky out of the shelter and help us determine her prognosis. Becky is estimated to be around 10 years old. She received a nice warm shower this afternoon and fell asleep in her crate after dinner.  Becky is still circling frequently and she does not have enough balance to go up a flight of stairs. We will give Becky some time to settle in and will post an update once we learn more about her.
