It's been a few years...I doubt they'd remember. The shelter isn't sending dogs up any longer. I forget why, I guess the controversy.
We had committed to foster her until they came back for a load of females. When they came for another set of dogs, we sent her partly for our own dogs' protection (she was looking poorly again despite the prior round of antibiotics) as well as her own good. Often the vet students WOULD adopt the dogs who came up for spay/neuter, so much so that the shelter finally said Hey...let us adopt some of the good ones out, don't keep them all!
So I like to think she did get a good home that way. She was such a cutie. We had to sub-cu fluids to her, worm her and treat her with antibiotics before she left us. In retrospect, it may have been the dog flu(??) but she seemed to have had a really nasty case of kennel cough. The green gunk from her nose when she was really at her worst, made us consider distemper.
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
