Meet Ebonee

January 15, 2019

All is going really well with Ebony in her foster home .  Her foster mom reports:  I find it hard to believe she is 10-11 years old. She is feeling good and full of energy. I can’t wait until she is cleared to go romp in the field w my dogs. She knows all her commands and will respond quickly. She sleeps w her cone on in my room on her bed every nite. She spends about 10 min crashing into every piece of furniture she can to try to get the cone off and then settles and sleeps through the night. She has free rein of the house now even when I am gone . She is ADORABLE.

Say hello to Ebony.  While you can probably guess how she got her name, you couldn’t imagine, even with that beautiful face, what a sweet dog she is.  She’s amazing!  Ebony came to Brookline after she was surrendered to a shelter when her family couldn’t afford her medical care.  Brookline is just glad we learned about her.  While were aware prior to pulling her she had significant medical issues,  we did not know the extent of them. Aside from needing to be spayed, she also had eight masses along her mammary chain including one that had actually burst open 🙁   Poor Ebony.  

Brookline would like to thank all the kind people who have donated to her care thus

Patiently waiting for surgery

far.  It really did make the difference in our being able to help her; yesterday she had her surgical consult which included a met check (X-rays and ultrasound to check for internal masses on her organs) and senior bloodwork to be sure she did not have possible issues aside from the visible mammary tumors.  Fortunately, there were not any other lesions and her bloodworm results were very good so it was then decided she is healthy enough to withstand the surgery.

The surgeon at St. Francis Veterinary Center just called and she is out of surgery and doing well!!  Ebony will be hospitalized for a minimum of three days but then should be able to leave this weekend to go to her foster home,
