Meet Chablis. She is a beautiful larger yellow girl. Her amber eyes and pearly white teeth will captivate you! Chablis is your typical happy-go-lucky lab who doesn’t realize how big she is. Chablis has been in a foster home since 2/18/12 and enjoys playing with her foster sisters.
Here’s what we’ve learned about Chablis so far:
- sleeps through the night on her foster moms bed
- crates well while you are away
- medium energy
- knows how to "sit"
- knows how to use a doggie door
- rides well in the car
- enjoys going for walks and to the dog park
- loves dogs of all sizes, in fact, Chablis has even attended doggie daycare
- walks well with a prong collar
- sorry....NO cats for Chablis
- still learning that counter surfing is not cool
- needs work on recall
- is a definite snuggle bunny and follows you EVERYWHERE
- takes treats gently
Chablis is on MEDICAL HOLD while she recovers from surgery. A couple of days after Chablis arrived, her foster mom noticed her not using one of her legs on a few different occasions. After a trip to the dog beach, Chablis did not use her leg for more than 24 hours. Off to the specialist she went. She was seen at California Veterinary Specialists (CVS) and had radiographs, which showed some mild arthritis in her hocks, but nothing to warrant her not using her leg. She was put on crate rest for 2 weeks and slowly introduced to exercise again. She did well up until the point where she was released to be a normal dog again. After two trips to the dog park, Chablis was not using her leg AGAIN! She went back to CVS for a follow up on April 17th. The specialist thought she might have an OCD lesion in her hock. She had a CT scan on April 27th which confirmed the diagnosis. Chablis had surgery on May 4th. Please keep good thoughts for Chablis and check back often for updates.
