did I become "invisible" to my family??
like a LONG time!! Hey, WE are over here!!
aren’t sure where to start with Isabelle’s bio.
We don’t know anything about her life the past 12
years. We can’t believe that she’s 12–she
looks and acts much younger. We don’t understand how
that tumor was allowed to get THAT big. The most important
thing is that Isabelle is safe with us, and thanks to our
generous supporters, she will get the help she obviously
needs. Here’s what we do know: Isabelle’s owner
was in an accident and could no longer care for her, so
his niece brought Isabelle to the local shelter for an unknown
fate. Luckily, they contacted us asking for help. In addition
to the shockingly enormous tumor (we don’t remember
a bigger one at IDR+), she also has a slightly deformed
foot. It doesn’t cause her any issues walking, but
her nails don’t touch the ground to wear down, so
it’s a good thing she didn’t mind the desperately
needed nail trim. The brief give-up paperwork says Isabelle
is good with other dogs, barks at cats, and is house trained.
Of course, she is headed to the vet, where she will get
a full exam, including chest x-rays to make sure that tumor
hasn’t metastasized. It’s the size and firmness
of a steamed head of cauliflower, so it will be a massive
surgery and recovery. We will update her bio as soon as
we know more.
Needs if any: Surgery to remove tumor.
areas: Illinois and the surrounding states.
Contact Information: Illinois Doberman Rescue will place
Dobes in Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, or Wisconsin. See contact
info above or go to IDR's website at http://www.ildoberescue.com
for adoption information and application.
Sponsor A Senior program helps Seniors by raising funds
for their rescue programs. This helps offset some of the
additional costs that come with caring for a senior (diet,
medications, supplements, etc.). Please read more about
this program on the Sponsor
A Senior page.
Miss Isabelle is looking
for a sponsor! The cost to sponsor a Senior Dobe is $40
