Meet Greta, a petite buff cocker girl 10 1/2 years old. She was found by a Good Samaritan on a cold February morning, alone, clearly lost and sitting dazed in the middle of a neighborhood street in a NC residential area. While walking her 3 dogs this nice lady saw her almost get hit by a car and quickly rescued her. She took her home, got her warm and dry, but had to leave for work and put her into a crate until she could come home for lunch. She made flyers, contacted the local shelter, a few vet offices and went around the neighborhood to see if anyone was missing her. When no one called or stepped up to inquire about her, she looked online to contact this cocker spaniel rescue.
Thankfully, she came in heartworm negative and already spayed. The rescue vet learned that she had a slight heart murmur due to stress and anemia issues and her teeth were caked with that brown ugly tartar stuff, some broken, loose and worn down like she had been chewing on something hard for quite some time. She had to have a much needed dental so it got scheduled quickly. For now, this has eliminated any current issues with her health and eating. She was on the thin side and weak in the back legs but a better food diet and time has helped her to be a much stronger girl. A nice volunteer who has dogs from this rescue became her foster mommy awhile back and now she and her husband have officially adopted her. She is a very happy girl living a great life in a calm home environment where she is very loved. Her 3 cocker sisters are great, they all get along really well.
