Maxine breaks our
hearts. She is a sweet, loving girl who has become
handicapped as a result of her former owner's neglect.
Maxine is only 2 years old, but due to an ear infection that was
left untreated, she has a tilt to her head. When
she came into our rescue, we immediately got her the veterinary
treatment that she needed, but the damage had already been
done. Our doctors tell us that there is a possibility that
she may remain this way for
the rest of her life. We are seeking out a specialist so
that we can determine if anything can be done to correct the
Maxine doesn't let her condition get in
the way of her cheerful nature. She would make a wonderful
companion for someone who understands the suffering that she
endured and wants to shower her with the love that she deserves.
Maxine was turned in by her
owners because they didn't have space for her. Maxine is
housebroken and used to being around children. She does not
do well with some other dogs, probably because of the discomfort
that she feels due to her condition.
just returned from an extended visit with our veterinarian, where
she was treated with heavy doses of antibiotics to treat her ear
infection. Although there was some damage to her eardrum,
the veterinarian feels that Maxine has a good chance to
recover. Her head is starting to return to an upright
position, and we are hopeful that her progress will continue over
the next few weeks. The staff at the veterinary hospital
said that Maxine was a great dog, and behaved very nicely while
she was there.
Maxine is now ready to find a permanent
home, and we are also looking for a foster home to care for her
during her recovery period. Read more about becoming
Maxine's foster home here.
