Honey is now ready for adoption!

Honey continues to do remarkably well in her foster home. As part of her treatment protocol, she recently went in for a chest X-ray to monitor whether any cancer had spread to her lungs. The X-ray revealed no evidence of any cancer.

Her radiation-treated tumor continues to shrink and her oncologist is very pleased with her progress. There is a good growth of hair over the treated area.

In monitoring Honey, one concern was identified. She had a grape-sized growth on her elbow and we were unsure whether it was cancerous. Many dogs develop calluses from lying on their elbows. But given her history, we decided to have the growth removed and biopsied. Thankfully the growth was benign. This good news, however, cost us an extra $650.

Due to the surgery and pre-surgical shaving, Honey kind of looks like she’s had a poodle trim on her front legs, as you can see in the photo.

Honey's personality continues to impress everyone. She is a very happy girl and is always getting compliments. She really ramps up her enthusiasm around mealtime and when she thinks she is going somewhere.

And, since Honey now is available for adoption, we hope she’ll find the forever home she’s been waiting for. Find her full bio on the Collies Needing Homes page.

 

JUST ARRIVED!!!

These collies or shelties have just arrived in SWCR. Each will be vetted and fostered until SWCR knows enough about them to write a bio. That process can take a few weeks. Then they will move to the Collies Needing Homes page. So click on this link to see if the collie you last saw on this page is now ready for adoption.
