About FOSTER NEEDED- Brownie

Chow Chow / German Shepherd
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female

**Looking for a temporary foster home - not up for adoption!** **This animal is located near Santa Fe, NM** Dew Paws Rescue assists in the care of dogs in local pueblos. Brownie is getting ready to get a 'fast-kill' shot for heartworm treatment and will need a foster home in Santa Fe, El Dorado, or surrounding area that can host her for a month or so during recovery. The 30 days post-treatment is a very dicey time for dogs recovering from heartworm. Dogs must be kept resting with minimal activity; this means resting/crate time and only short walks and yard time to potty. They cannot do activities that will raise their heart rate or get them overly excited (no running, playing with other dogs, hiking, etc,). So we are looking for a quiet, restful home that can help keep Brownie restful and low energy during recovery. Brownie is a sweet, somewhat shy dog, who is very easy to handle once she gets acclimated (she might take a few days to get used to new people/situations). A foster home with an enclosed yard would be ideal since she will need to go out for potty breaks but not long walks. Brownie is approx. 50 lbs. Crates, equipment, food provided. You just be the dog-nurse in a quiet home! If interested in fostering, please email [email protected]
