Well, thanks for the wonderful replies.
Alter-Ego- your little girl is beautiful, and I am always happy to hear stories of great animal rescues.
Hynotoad, her coat does resemble a Catahoula, it really struck me when i saw the pictures in the links you posted. Thank you very much.
Since it has been a month, I'd just like to let everyone know Deedee is three times her size now and is a healthy playful pup. She has the most
adorable play growl. She adores my daughter , who is nine. Dee likes to rest her head on my girl's lap or on her arm while she is reading out loud.
That is the cutest thing. I treated her worms and mange, so her hair has grown back in already, and she has put on size and weight. In the beginning
she had problems with her front legs- the joints seemed to be sliding to the side ans she was limping. I was giving her some baby aspirin for the pain
but I was worried the feet would be a real problem. Then a growth spurt hit and that straightened her joints out as the legs got a little more
She is a smart little thing. I didn't have to train her to use the papers inside. She just did it from the first day she came in. I've never had a
dog paper train that easily. She knew her name within a week, too.
I thought I'd update you all with some photos too!
