Meet Betsy Life Begins at Linbee
From Pounds for Poundies
Betsy’s story before she came to Linbee.
Betsy has a really sad story and god bless her has been so failed by humans.......now safe in emergency boarding after finding herself in the pound after clearly being bred from over and over and knowing very little love or care......
Update from her pound helpers:
Sadly this older girl is in a poor state and after a vet visit today she has a multiple issues going on.
1. meds for ears (after cleaning them)
2. meds for her arthritis
3. worm and flea treatment and initial trimming of her nails as these were so long they were curling up (this will need to be repeated several times to get them short enough for healthy walking)
4. She will need a dental
The bigger issues are:
1.entropian of the upper and lower eye lids
2. several lumps that need aspirating and testing for cancerous cells.
3. A possible mammary tumour.
I am waiting to speak to the rescue that offered on her to ask what the treatment plan would be if her results from aspiration came back indicating cancerous cells and if it would be best we find her palliative care or they do.
I am determined that this girl who appears to have known little kindness in her previous life at least gets the chance to enjoy what time she has left on this earth in a loving home.

Well the old lady has arrived safe with us thanks to lynne baldwin.
Everyone please welcome Betsy to Linbee.
She is one sad girl who has several health issues, lumps and bumps which will be tested for cancer, poor hips, splayed front leg, ear infection and etropian of the eyes.
she is booked in at the vets and hopefully we will make her more comfortable whilst tests are carried out....and possibly get her into hydro to help with her hips.
onwards and upwards baby girl xx
Yup its the same dog....its our darling Betsy and today she was such a brave girl at the vets.
She was prodded poked pulled and pricked and didn't bat an eyelid.
Surprisingly for her age she has no major health issues apart from needing a good dental later.
For now she's on a strict diet no treats and small walks to lose the pounds and gain muscle on her legs which in time should make her more mobile...the lumps were tested and are none cancerous on her head and neck...so onwards and upwards.
For being a good girl she got to pick her own toy at pets at home with Jacqui Keleher and lin cox.
