Janie T is a Thulani dog rescued from a junkyard situation in San Francisco by a San Francisco resident, taken in by the San Francisco Animal Care and Control, and adopted out to us on 1/28/12. She was depressed, lethargic, and had a distended abdomen on intake.
Medical tests revealed that Janie has an enlarged heart and a hole connecting the left and right chambers of her heart. We are exploring possible remedies at the Veterinary School at UC Davis, but the prognosis is not good.
Janie is a confident, friendly, somewhat pushy little girl who runs right up to new people and dogs, and says–here I am. She met her four new fur sibs and immediately fit into the pack by asking everyone to play. She is a bit mouthy and assertive, but nothing out of the ordinary for a pup her age. She already has learned from the female Golden Retriever where the term ‘bitch’ comes from, has discovered that the male Golden/Border Collie mix is a neat guy except when he has a treasure that he considers his, and that her big brother GSD Kobuk knows all the greatest Shepherd games and will teach them to her whenever she wants.
Janie is now in her forever foster home and will live out her life in love and comfort, for however long that might be.
