Austin Sheltie Rescue Rainbow Bridge Lassie

Lassie and April came to us after their owner passed away, he had included the request in his will. Lassie is a 12 year old (born 3/1/2004) sable and white sheltie. She is spayed, up to date on all vaccinations, has recently had a dental, is heartworm negative and on heartworm preventive. Lassie is 16 inches tall and weighs 33 pounds, she will begin working on losing about 10 pounds which will help reduce the possibility of arthritis. Lassie lived inside until her owner passed away and is housetrained. Her coat will need a bit of TLC but with time will come back to beautiful. More as we get to know this sweet senior lady.

Lassie developed a fibrosarcoma on her jaw and it was determined that to try to remove the growth would require removing most of her jaw and possibly part of her skull. We decided against removal and decided to let her have as much love and snuggling as she wants for whatever time she has left.
