Lacey, a 9-year-old Shih Tzu, joined the Beaver Creek Farm Sanctuary (BCFS) foster program in January 2018 as an owner surrender. Weighing in at approximately 20 pounds, this sweet girl has proven to be incredibly sweet and affectionate.
Unfortunately, Lacey’s family was no longer able to care for her and she required a new home. While we originally thought Lacey was coming to us in good health, we quickly learned that she refused to eat and had diarrhea. After a visit to the vet and some testing, we found out that Lacey was suffering from an infection in her intestines called C. Diff. But nothing a little antibiotics couldn’t fix!
Lacey was so sad and sick when she first came to us that she would just lay in the corner with a devastated look on her face. However, after a week of medication, Lacey started to feel better and that sad look quickly turned happy!
We learned that Lacey loves to play, enjoys riding in the car, is good with cats and other dogs, walks well on a leash, and is housebroken. We also learned that she is incredibly smart and a real cuddle-bug. Lacey was looking for a home that would provide her with a lot of love and attention in her retirement years and we are so happy she has found just that!
Congratulations to Lacey, Ross & Marie.
