Sissy is a true gem that's been overlooked for a family of her own. Largely due in part because she's so bonded with her sister from either the same mother or father. They have been together since they were puppies. Sissy just loves affection, attention and some good old doggy treats and cookies. She'll practically do anything for something to eat! Sissy is a bit timid when meeting new people and due to the fact she's had some eye surgeries some decreased vision in her right eye makes her a bit unsure in some instances. All she's getting now is eye meds every day since the biggest issue is dry eye and repeated entropion surgeries. Sadly they may have made her syptoms worse. But it really doesn't stop her. Sissy loves kids other dogs and playing in the hose and wading pool during the summer! She also loves to take hikes to the creek and wade through the clear, moving water watching the fish! She's excellent for her baths, ear cleanings, nail trims and getting her eye meds put in. I think she knows when I do that her eyes feel better. In a perfect world I'd like to Sissy get adopted togeter with her sister Queen. Or at least go to a family with another dog so she has that companionship.
ADDITIONAL MEDICAL CARE:
Sissy may require eye drops daily as a result of the eye surgery she had:
Entropion is the inward curling of the eyelid so that the lashes scratch the cornea and cause irritation and eventual scarring and ulceration. It occurs when the eyeball is too small for the socket and the lids roll in toward the eye.
