Tuffy found the perfect retirement home!

Tuffy is a 10 year old Lhasa Apso. Until a couple months ago he thought he had his forever home. Then he lost his eyesight and his family decided it was time to find him a new home. Wags Inn Canine Charities took him in and learned that he is a very good dog that doesn’t realize he is blind. He has adapted well to his new surroundings here.

He would prefer a 1 story home so he doesn’t have to worry about falling down steps. He loves to explore the yard, he would prefer a fenced in yard. He does very well on a leash. He will lay in bed and chew on nylabones, or loves sitting on the couch with you getting snuggles and love. He does very well in his crate. He loves all dogs and people and children. He has so much love to give someone. Please come meet with this sweet boy.

He has had a donor pay for his adoption fee!

Dog Flu

What are the symptoms dog flu?

Kennel Cough (also known as Bordetella) is like the common cold in adults. It is contagious, but rarely fatal and runs its course in a few days. Symptoms include a dry, hacking cough, as if something is stuck in the dog’s throat.

Canine Influenza is highly contagious.  The symptoms are similar, but the cough produced by the canine flu virus is often soft and moist.  The flu cough is usually accompanied by a high fever, lack of appetite, lack of energy and a runny nose.  Pneumonia can develop in dogs with severe Canine Influenza.

Who is most at risk?

All dog breeds are equally prone to the Canine Influenza Virus.   Most at risk are those dogs who are active and social, simply because they are out and exposed more.   Dogs with pushed-in faces (like Pekingeses, Pugs, Bulldogs or French Bulldogs) may have a harder time bouncing back from any respiratory problem.  People and cats cannot contract CIV.

What do I do if I think my dog is sick or has been exposed to the virus?

If your dog is at risk or is experiencing symptoms, get the dog to a vet as soon as possible.  Dog owners whose dogs are coughing or showing other signs of respiratory disease should not expose other dogs to the virus.  If your dog is coughing, as a precaution and a courtesy to others, your dog should be isolated from other dogs–including those dogs in vet waiting rooms.  Clothing, equipment, surfaces, and hands should be cleaned and disinfected after exposure to dogs showing any signs of respiratory disease.
