MEET DISCOVERME DOG BABY GIRL! | EMAIL: ADOPTIONS@WAGGINGDOG.ORG | SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ONLY PLEASE --- Please say hallooo to DiscoverMe Dog number four - the sweetest chonky 8 yr old ever, BABY GIRL from the Carlsbad shelter! We're soooo happy to have this deserving gal in temporary foster care via the DiscoverMe Project! Thank you to her foster fam once again. BABY GIRL'S shelter admission photo will crush your heart but her transformation is already underway and it's what we all need to see right now. She was taken away from her former owner in early March and has been in our temp DMP foster home since Friday, showing us what a wonderful dog she is! This is another one who simply can NOT go back to the shelter, so please share her with your friends so we can find her forever family. As you can see, BG is severely obese at 85 lbs. We're not sure if it's thyroid but we're starting a special diet and exercise plan to see if we can drop some of those extra pounds real quick. Her body has clearly been neglected for a while. Her fur is thin or missing, skin rough and irritated, huge concrete callouses, and her teeth are really worn down. (It's pretty much all cosmetic though, stuff that should improve in a loving home with good nutrition and vet care). BABY has been an exemplary house guest so far. She does great in her crate, doesn't complain about anything, sleeps soundly and snores adorably BOL. She is so appreciative. Her dog skills are a bit rusty but she enjoys the companionship of her two foster siblings and would do fine with a well matched male companion dog. If only she were not so chubby, we can tell she'd really love to romp around and play with our Charlie Boy. We'll get her there, just wait and see! Stay tuned to our social while you're stuck at home on Q and follow BABY GIRL'S transformation journey as a DiscoverMe Dog! **Due to the unusual circumstances brought to us by COVID-19, we don't know when BABY GIRL will return to the Carlsbad shelter but the current plan is around APRIL 4TH unless an adopter or long term foster is found. BABY GIRL is available for an adoption fee of $37.50 and is fixed, microchipped, vaccinated and hoping to find an awesome family of her own. Wagging Dog Rescue will offer a medical stipend towards her vet care for any public adopter. **For inquiries to adopt or foster BABY GIRL please email ADOPTIONS@WAGGINGDOG.ORG **This dog is not at the shelter. She is with us in foster care so please inquire with WDR. --- VISIT https://waggingdog.org/discover-me-project/ AND https://www.facebook.com/waggingdogrescue/posts/3100558876635259 for more information about the DiscoverMe project and BABY GIRL! --- ABOUT THE DISCOVERME PROJECT: The DiscoverMe Project is a program that allows sheltered dogs from the County of San Diego Department of Animal Services - Carlsbad Shelter to go into temporary 2-week foster care with an approved Wagging Dog Rescue foster home so they can get a break from the stresses of being kenneled while providing mental, emotional and physical relief. While in foster care, we're able to learn more about the dog when in a normal home environment, which doesn't always align with behavior seen in a stressful kennel environment. We share that valuable information with shelter staff and potential adopters in order to aid shelter marketing and adopter selection. Through rigorous marketing and promotion, we ultimately hope not to return the DiscoverMe Dog to the shelter but instead to see that animal safely in the care of a forever family or reputable rescue with a foster care provider.
