Sassy July 23, 2018August 21, 2018Julie Lemson Breed: Schipperke DOB: 2014 Sex: Spayed female 205-18 My name is Sassy. I’m a Schipperke and I came to APB with a serious problem. I’m twice my normal weight. When Sassy first came in she could only walk 5-10′ and would have to lay down and rest. She would gasp for air especially in the heat. Sassy got this way possibly by an owner with dementia that kept forgetting they had already fed the dog. She has a thyroid problem and some other underlying issues. Many test have been run and it will take more blood work monitoring to get her to a normal weight. She has lost some weight on an expensive prescription food. Sassy is gaining strength and mobility. She exercises by swimming. Please help with Sassy’s journey back to her healthy potential. The Schipperke, Belgium’s “little captain,” is the traditional barge dog of the Low Countries. Curious, lively, and intense but mischievous, this little black dog is a robust, long-lived companion for whom there is never a dull moment. Or mail a donation to: Animal Placement Bureau, P. O.
