Sweet and happy Merry found herself at Walton County Animal Control and we were able to pull her just in time this past December. She was heartworm positive and after two months in her foster home for that treatment she was ready for the rest of her vetting. That’s when we got a real surprise! Our wonderful vet went in to do her spay surgery and found she had a diaphragmatic hernia and many things that did not belong up there - like her intestines, spleen and liver - were actually up in her diaphragm. Apparently, she was born that way, so she did not show any of the symptoms that would lead to concern. Everything was put where it should be in a 2 1/2 hour surgery. Another month at her foster home allowed all her internal stitches to heal, and now she’s ready to find her permanent home! She is so very sweet and loving, and is house trained. And she’s just the perfect size! About 40 pounds. She’s good with other dogs and we believe she would love kids. But we don’t know how she would be with cats. Do you have room for this sweet miracle girl in your life?
