    She went from 76 to 101 in a month. She's slowly coming out of her shell. Meeting new foster dogs as they come in. She's pretty nervous and reserved all around. If you want, you can follow her on Harbor Rescue facebook page. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Yes she's doing much better. Rescue lady told me the more she's gaining strength the more skittish she is lol. She is looking for a home.

    3.3 miles in warm humid weather. One is a dinosaur and the other is a gimp. We made it no problems. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    She's still looking. She is really bonded to Deb. Even dance plays with her lol. I was able to take her leash and walk her and use some leash pressure to keep her close to me and hec and she did really well and was forging ahead at times. [​IMG][​IMG]

    She really likes the newcomer - stray shepherd (somewhat trained and very calm). He's young and his condition is almost just as bad as hers when she first arrived. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Ben the shepherd was doing really bad and almost died. He wouldn't eat and kept losing 2lbs a day for 2 days in a row. They ran a bunch of tests and xrays on him and couldn't find a thing. Tested him for addisons and it was negative. Finally he was able to start eating again after been given cerenia? shots like 3 days in a row which is suppose to help with nausea and block pain receptors. He's finally eating without assisted meds and he's a typical shepherd that's very mellow and polite, for now. [​IMG]

    I got to walk Sadie by myself. She's very flightly and very home bound lol. Anytime you stop, she'll try to turn towards her house. If you keep going, then she'll keep going. She's very sensitive to leash pressure so that's a plus. Overall a pretty nervous dog that's quiet. Anyway I think she's looking really good and hopes someone adopts her because she's pretty bonded to the rescue lady and when she was boarded for 2 days at the vet, she started vomiting and wouldn't eat. You see how focused she was going home (2nd pic) lol. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    She is looking so much better! Her behavior sounds a lot like the couple of Danes we fostered.

    She is so pretty. How old do you think she is? I'm so glad she's getting better health wise.

    Do you have any updates? Did she find a home yet?

    Yes - a day after I posted these pics she went into a foster home. I don't know how she's doing there. I will ask.

    This is a good question. First the owner said 9, then the owner said 7. We are going with 7.
