Rescue Me ID: 16-07-16-00494Maggie (female)

Shetland Sheepdog Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    My husband and I adopted Maggie about a month ago. When we got her not only was she recovering from being thrown out of a car, but she also had kennel cough, worms and a parasite. We took her to the vet right away and she is now worm and parasite free. The kennel cough is also gone and her scar is 95% healed. She is great with other dogs, loves people and kids. We fell in love with her and decided to keep her until we took her to the Vet last night. It turns out she has cushing's disease. For those of you who don't know what this is it makes dogs constantly thirsty and makes them urinate more frequently. There is medicine for this condition, ... (Read More)which apparently helps the dogs greatly. However, this medicine can run anywhere from $100-$200 a month. Under normal circumstances Nick and I would take on this additional expense, however because of our current situation we cannot afford this expense right now. In addition, we live in a condo on the 3rd floor. This makes it's harder to take her out more frequently. (which again with the medicine would decrease) We really do not want to bring her back to a shelter. We are going to try and keep her for however long it takes for us to find her a good home. Again, if there is someone who is willing to pay this expense every month, Cushing's disease is very manageable. She really is a great dog and this breaks my heart writing this message. (Less)

    Shelties are descended from Collies crossed with a now extinct small breed called the Icelandic Yakkin. The Sheltie is the sixth most intelligent dog breed. The first Sheltie recognized by the British Kennel Club was named Badenock Rose. Shetland Sheepdogs are very rare in Shetland. The first AKC registered Sheltie was Lord Scott in 1911.
