One of our sweet mutts

Sasha 2249

Sharpei | Female | Size: medium (20-50 lbs)

Sasha 2249

So cuuuute!! Sasha broke my heart when I saw her little old body and darling face staring up at me from behind the kennel doors. Who does this? I want to scream! Sasha is a tiny Sharpei, about 25 pounds, she is 12, we think.

Her tail is starting to wag, too. Sasha is wonderful, quiet, and easy going. She is a slow walker, but she does love to stroll along. She is fine with other dogs and will cuddle up sometimes with another one here at Muttville.

She needs a sweet retirement home to spend her last chapter, she didn’t deserve to be thrown away…..

"Physical Rehabilitation for Senior Dogs" with Dr. Ilana Strubel

'Physical Rehabilitation for Senior Dogs' with Dr. Ilana Strubel

Senior pets are not unlike senior citizens. They need frequent checkups, typically receive multiple medications, and have “senior moments.” Like people, pets tend to lose muscle and balance with age. This age-related muscle and proprioceptive loss can lead to inactivity and weight gain, increased stress on joints

from diminished stability of surrounding musculature, and injuries from tripping and falling.

Success Story "Gracie" (1847)

Success Story "Gracie" (1847)

Left in a backpack and covered in urine and feces, poor Gracie was dropped off at the local SF shelter. Muttville staff were shocked and horrified that someone could leave this sweet blind girl in such shocking conditions. But Gracie proved to have an unbreakable spirit. Her personality remained sweet and kind and trusting. Helen saw Gracie’s amazing will to live and be happy, and Helen decided Gracie was her perfect first dog! Read their beautiful love story, as told by mom Helen:

I think I’m the luckiest person in the world – because I found Gracie! Gracie is super sweet and gentle, and has the most adorable wiggle when she walks. She steals everyone’s heart, even the five bunnies who share the house with her. She visits them in their various rooms, and she must wonder what they are because she can’t see them, but she loves their smell! One naughty bunny will tease her when she’s eating!

This is what Gracie says about her new home: “I love lots of things in my new home – the sofa with lots of pillows – going for short walks and rolling in the grass – snuggling with my mom when she’s watching Mad Men – roaming around the house and bumping into bunnies – kisses and belly scratches and being silly. And I love going to work with Momma on Fridays – everyone at the office says I’m super cute!”

Still, Gracie has challenges because she is blind. But I think that makes her so much more special. I can’t imagine having any other dog except this sweet girl – she makes me smile so much every day – from the moment I wake up and find her dozing on the sofa, to the moment I come home from work and she’s wagging her tail patiently waiting for lots of hugs and coos and smooches. She is incredibly tolerant and resilient, and is teaching me all about being a good dog “parent” – she is my first dog and I am so delighted!

I am sad sometimes because I don’t know what happened to Gracie’s first family, and I worry that she misses them, but I try to give her as much love as I can, and make her feel safe and secure, and hope that she knows she will always belong right here with me!
