Shasta is thought to be around 7 years old. She is mother to Beebee. She was brought in from Lake Dr., Trimble. Shasta weighs around 50 pounds. Shasta is a dog that needs some time to warm up to meeting new people. She loves furry squeaky toys. We have found that Shasta appears to be housebroken. Shasta came into the shelter with a rear leg injury and some pretty yucky skin. She was covered in fleas. Her elbows are raw, and her fur is sparse over much of her body. In short, she’s looking a little tatty and used up. Our biggest concern about Shasta is that she has a torn ACL. We have her on pain medication, but she’s going to need surgery for the injury to completely heal. Shasta does not do transitions well and will need a patient, experienced adopter with no children. Once Shasta settles in, however, she is sweet, sweet, sweet. With other dogs, she can be selective on who she likes and who she doesn’t like. Shasta will need a quiet place to call home. Can you give this sweet senior a cozy bed and some TLC?
