“Cindy Loper”- Cindy came to us from the Williamson County Shelter. It appears she may have been neglected but is on the road to a better life. Cindy is around 16 inches tall and may be between 8 and 10 years old. She is now up to date on all vaccinations, spayed, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventive.
Update on Jan 2018: When Cindy came into our rescue program six months ago, she looked and felt awful because both ears were infected, she had a fungal infection on her skin, and she had kennel cough. She has gotten over all these issues and her overall appearance is much better now that she is healthier. Since she feels better, she is more active and we do think her age is between 8-10 years, as estimated when she came into our program. While undergoing a dental cleaning, our vet suspected that Cindy might have a heart problem. A specialist examined her and determined Cindy has a condition called Atrioventricular block (AV block) which can affect the electrical impulses/rhythm of her heart. We were told this condition would either get worse with time or would stay the same. So far, we have not seen any change in her normal behavior.
Cindy has an extremely sweet and happy personality. She is her foster mom’s shadow and wants to be close to her all the time. She loves attention and likes to be petted. She is housebroken and has good house manners. When it’s time to eat, she gets extremely excited and ‘lopes’ to the kitchen while nipping on her foster mom’s hand. Thus, her nickname….”Cindy Loper”! She loves to go on walks. She gets along well with other dogs, cats and children. She is almost deaf; however, she can hear loud noises. This sweet and happy girl has a beautiful spirit and would make a wonderful companion for a very lucky person!
Cindy passed away on February 11, 2019 after suffering a cardio-pulmonary arrest. This sweet girl brought much joy and laughter to her foster family and will be dearly missed.
