Although it is uncommon in dogs, 5 ½ -year-old Rhia was diagnosed with a low- grade mammary tumor. She was taken to a private veterinarian for her surgery and is doing well with a good prognosis. Just like a woman performs a self-exam, Rhia will need observation and mammograms will not be necessary.
This American Staffordshire was brought to the shelter with her male partner when her owners had to move away and they were unable to take them. Her boyfriend was adopted leaving her to face cancer on her own. However, she is a happy girl that loves to be with people and to lounge in the real room as often as possible. She is a couch (really a futon) potato when in there.
Here are some things you should know about her:
- She is housebroken.
- She is playful with small kids.
- She is good on leash.
- She knows how to sit.
- She likes to ride in the car and does it well.
- She has had beginner doggy training.
Rhia will make a fine walking partner and would be an inspiration to those who participate in the annual Walk for Breast Cancer.
