MEET THE REMARKABLE MISS FOLLY! Folly is a white-with-a-bit-of-tan, 5-yr-old, 14-lb Lhasa Apso who came to us from the Coachella Animal shelter with a broken jaw and congenitally-shrunken eyes. When we heard about Folly, it brought tears to our eyes and we had to take her! And we are so glad that we did — what a precious gem she is!
Upon Folly’s arrival, we saw that her eye globes were intact and open but underdeveloped, gave her no sight and were causing infection. Our vet said the best thing to do was to remove them, so that’s what we did. This is her “before” pic:
Folly saw the canine dental specialist, who said that her broken jaw was likely from an attack by another dog earlier in her life. 🙁 It had healed and wasn’t causing her any pain, but we had it repaired so she would be more comfortable. After 2 weeks of eating soft food, she is all healed up and ready for adoption. She now has the most adorable crooked mouth!
Folly is really well adjusted, despite her “challenges” — she loves her food and she knows where her human is at all times, because she follows you like a shadow! She is mellow, easygoing, and a total lovebug. She is a very smart girl! She can get herself on/off (low) furniture without assistance and knows how to use a doggy door. Folly walks well on a leash, is good in the car, and is quiet and happy to be loved. She seems to be potty trained, but no guarantees at your house. She would be fine as an only dog, with an active senior, with respectful older kids or in just about any home where her human is around most of the time. She doesn’t like being left alone and will bark, but she settles down.
Folly is still young and has a lot of life left. We are looking for a single-story forever home for her in the Los Angeles area. If you really want to rescue a dog, here is one who NEEDS you! Do you need to be rescued?
