Rayna landed in the shelter in Athens TX after her foot was caught in a leg-trap that had been set by a rancher trying to deal with a coyote problem She was very underweight, and it's clear she has been bred over and over again. No telling how many litters of puppies she has had in her lifetime, so it was no surprise that she appeared to have mammary tumors. Both ears were infected and she has a broken canine tooth. And she tested positive for heartworms. And yet through all she’s been through, Miss Rayna has been calm and sweet and full of grace. She has been spayed, had the doggy equivalent of a double mastectomy, had her ears cleaned and packed with meds, and has started treatment for heartworms. And one of the best bits of news -- the trap didn't do any permanent damage to her paw! Rayna's age is a mystery -- she could be anywhere from 2 - 8 years old -- some of her teeth look like she's very young. Others look like she's older. Truly, it's anyone's guess.
Whatever her age, Rayna is a sweet, calm girl who deserves a soft place to rest her head as she completes her journey to good health. We think that Rayna would do best as a house pet and not a livestock guardian. During the last 3 weeks of being in her foster home, Rayna has gained almost 8 lbs, and she needs to gain more in order to fill in her previously emaciated frame. Her plush coat was hiding just how thin she was, but before long, she will start to look more like Shrek's Princess Fiona rather than Jack Skellington. We hope that the right folks will see Rayna and know that she's just the dog they've been looking for.
