Sarah was originally found as a stray and taken to the ER because she was having difficulty standing. When she arrived at the shelter, Sarah was still very wobbly and collapsing. She was placed in a temporary foster home for closer observation and Sarah visited the vet the next morning for additional testing. Her bloodwork and cardiac functioning were normal. The vet suspected narcolepsy. Sarah remained in a temporary foster home in WV until her transport to AABR. During this time, Sarah was able to rest and she exhibited significant improvement without any treatment. She has been doing great with the other dogs, large and small, and has ignored the cats. Sarah is also wonderful with children. Her owners were located a few days ago and they made the difficult decision to surrender Sarah. Their other female boxer had become very aggressive toward Sarah and they had built a temporary pen to try to keep her safe. Sarah escaped from this enclosure. Her owners knew it was not fair to keep Sarah separated and they did not want to put this gentle girl at risk for future attacks. Sarah was transported this weekend to her new foster home in Maryland. She has been friendly to everyone and we will update Sarah’s page as we learn more about her.
