Breed: French Bulldog
Current Location: Sherman, TX
Adoption Date: June 24, 2017
Adopted by: Angela Cole
Elizabeth Swann was walking down the street with her eyeball hanging out of her head and nowhere to go. She ended up in a shelter that contacted us for help. Help is exactly what she needed and that’s just what we gave her. It turned out that her eye had pushed it if her head from an auto immune disease that was getting ready to attack the other one as well.
The eye institute took over the care of her eye and turned the whole process around. She was also HW positive and had to be treated for that as well. She will always need to be on medication for her disorder but her new family didn’t care. Angela Cole from Sherman, TX has been waiting for her for months while foster mom Wendy and our medical team took care of all of her medical needs.
Today was the big day for her, she gave lots of wiggles and lots of kisses to her new family. She then hopped in the car and didn’t look back.
We wish you the happiest of happy lives, sweet girl!
We were contacted about this girl running as a stray with her eyeball hanging out in the city of The Colony. Animal control there had picked her up and reached out to us for help. Our Rescue vet, Dr. D, and Dr. Pierson from the Eye Institute were called and consulted but the dog went to an emergency hospital where they removed the eye.
Once Dr. Pierson examined her, she diagnosed her with Chorioretinitis, which essentially is irritation of the retina in the back of the eye. The very good news is that it appears that she does have an auto immune disorder and she is responding to medication. She will continue on them and slowly will have her dosage reduced but will most likely be on them for the rest of her life. The better news is that she can see out of the eye she has left, and Dr. Pierson believes that her vision in that eye will continue to improve!
Let’s give a warm welcome to Elizabeth Swann. ❤️
