DAPHNE HAS BEEN ADOPTED BY A WONDERFUL, CARING FAMILY!
We recently pulled/transferred this sweet German Shepherd from Vancouver Animal Shelter to Cross Our Paws Rescue. She originally came in as a stray and had clearly been used as a breeding dog. Over 8 months later, Daphne was still homeless. Jessi Larssen of Cross Our Paws met Daphne and sponsored her and took her home to foster. Daphne has been an amazing addition to our rescue and is learning how to “just be a dog” and enjoy her life while we search for her forever family/match in life. She loves to play, run, swim and SNUGGLE. She is super smart and very driven which is no surprise considering her breed.
After being in our care for almost a month we are worried that Daphne has some very concerning mammary tumors. We just finished a course of antibiotics and soaking her in epsom salts/warm water (gently massaging her), 2 teats are of a huge concern. We decided today to have them removed as they can not be expressed or manipulated and they are VERY sore for her. Her surgery is slated for early next week. Please think of our sweet Daphne as she deserves a life free of pain AND wants to LOVE and LIVE. Shame on horrible backyard breeders that do this to innocent animals only to make a quick buck and then throw them away like garbage when they can no longer produce a product for sale.
We are SO thrilled to be able to give this girl what she deserves and hope we caught it early enough. If you are interested in helping us with Daphne’s vet bills please let us know.
