Senior Female, 12 years old
Location: Rocky Ford, CO
Janna is a warm, loving and somewhat shy senior who comes from a mysterious background that may have been in a puppy mill. She was saved from euthanasia by Rocky Mountain Cocker Rescue and only asks for a warm loving touch and companionship. Janna came to us with arthritic knees, large mammary tumors, cherry eye, infected ears, giardia and round worms. Since then she has successfully recovered from surgery for her tumors and cherry eye. She is free of giardia and worms but still is battling ear infections, although she does not complain. Because she seems to have a sensitive stomach she is not tolerant of pain medication for her arthritis, but she doesn’t let that stop her.
This wonderfully curious little girl is learning to have a little fun. She would like to play but doesn’t really know how, however she is willing to try. She loves for her foster mom to scratch, rub and massage her. She will roll around and wait for her tummy to get rubbed. Janna is learning to ask for attention and will cuddle up with her foster mom for a nice massage. She will give thank you kisses on your hand, and her tail never stops wagging.
She keeps tabs on her foster mom, will follow her around the house, and loves to be included in any activity. She likes to ride and can handle only short walks due to her arthritis. Janna does not like to go out on her own for a potty break when it is cold, but if you put on her sweater she will comply appropriately. Janna likes dogs and cats. She would probably be more comfortable in a quiet home with a companion dog. Because of her age and physical condition she would not do well with small children. Janna has come a long way from her past difficult life and longs for a safe, warm and loving forever home. She has recovered from ear ablation surgery and is definitely enjoying life more. Her right eye is starting to get a little blink while the left is still paralyzed. Experiencing more senior issues with mobility and appetite, and becoming more frail. In foster home with her friend Angie 14-122. Enjoys a lot of foster TLC, including daily hip and knee massage.
