Meet Irristible Irma!!

I'm sooooo happy to have been left... to the RescueAngels!!

  
Out? Out?  I just LOVE outside!!

Ten year-old Irma was pulled from a Georgia shelter when her owners failed to reclaim her. The poor girl probably hadn’t had a bath in months or even years. She was thought to be red until her bath when it became clear she was blue Lady. She obviously looked, smelled, and felt so much better. Irma is estimated to be about 10 years old but could be as old as 12. Her back end is weak and her back feet slide around if she’s not wearing boots. She wants to play with the other dogs but usually falls down when she play bows. X-rays of her neck, chest, and back show she has an enlarged heart and has white spots on her lungs. The vet could not tell if the spots on her lungs were tumors or pockets of fluid so Irma will be seeing a cardiologist to see if she has DCM. She is heartworm positive. Irma is a very happy dog who gets along with all the dogs she’s met in her foster home. She also seems to enjoy meeting lots of new people. She will try to steal food off your plate so she needs to be watched when people are eating.

Special Needs if any:  Will know more after she sees a cardiologist.

Geographic areas: Not available for adoption.
