NEW YORK: Andraya was rescued a few weeks back from a high kill shelter in Los Angeles, and then traveled to New York where she is waiting for a home. She is about 9 years old and only 4.8 lbs (so teeny tiny!), but she could stand to gain a few ounces. When the rescue first took her in, she had a severe luxating patella in one of her hind legs that was causing her a lot of pain, and she had a mouth full of rotting teeth, so she had surgery to correct both -- and is now mostly (adorably) toothless. Being a mature girl, she's also got cataracts in both eyes, but that's just kind of older dog foggy vision, and the vet doesn't recommend any treatment for it because she gets around mostly fine (just bumps into things once in a while in a new environment). She also has a heart murmur. Poor Andraya was about to be euthanized in Los Angeles, but she is such a bright, loving little thing, @socialteesnyc had to pull her to safety! She deserves to find that special place to be spoiled for the rest of her life. Andraya is doing great in her foster home, she's got spunk, she walks with a chipper skip (and looks like a mouse at the end of a leash). She is great with other dogs, she likes to cuddle, she's housebroken, and she sometimes even plays with toys. She would do best in a low energy home where she can nap the day away in the lap of someone who loves her.
