Marceline urgently needs a foster home

Why is fostering needed?

I hope this message finds you well. I am reaching out to you regarding a neglected female dog that my family/friends and I recently found. The vet estimated her to be around 5 years old, weighs approximately 34 pounds, and, despite her past neglect, seems to be in relatively good health. She seems to be house trained as she’s only had one accident in our garage all week and her leash manners are impressive! I had an appointment where she received her receive Rabies, Distemper (lepto and parvo) and bordetella vaccines and a heartworm test that came back positive.

This sweet dog has a timid nature but quickly opened up to us. She is cat-tolerant and incredibly people-friendly. We were hoping that she would get along fabulously with our own dog who we’ve been thinking of getting a playmate already but she doesn’t seem to be the playmate type. We are unable to keep her but while she may not be comfortable with our playful dog, we believe she could thrive in a single-dog home or one with a laid-back canine companion.

We are sincerely hoping that your rescue organization can step in to provide her with the care and attention she deserves. If you require any additional information or would like to arrange a meeting, please let us know. Also, please let me know if there is any information you can provide me to start the process/what to expect. Your help in finding her a loving forever home would be immensely appreciated.

Thank you for your dedication to rescuing and caring for animals in need.

Best regards,
Alexandra Wright

Also, the veterinarian said that they could not confirm or deny if she’s been spayed or not at her vet visit. I believe the maximum I will be able to keep her is until the end of March. Reason being, as mentioned in the message before, we were in the process of getting a second dog to have and to be a playmate with our current dog (another dog with a lot of energy to play with our high energy dog) and we made a meet and greet appointment with a foster dog before we found this sweet girl. We believe the shelter dog that we are meeting is going to be a great fit for our dog and she will have to be adopted by March 29th, so I wouldn’t be able to barricade her from two high energy dogs for very long unfortunately. She is SO incredibly loving to people when she starts to trust them. I believe that she would thrive in an indoor home of a younger couple, older couple, or a solo person with no other dogs, or another laid-back calm dog like her. We have been told that she could be a mix of the following breeds: Carolina dog, red heeler and a shepherd of some sort.

We are calling her Marceline

We are located around Columbia, South Carolina but am willing to travel for her safety up to 6 hours away or so.

I truly do need the assistance as I will not be able to keep her in my home past March 30th and with the temperatures rising I worry it will be unsafe to keep her in my garage for even before then 😔

I can even help with HW treatment financially I just can’t keep her here

How long is fostering needed for?

Until a forever home for pet is found

Other notes

Low energy, might would do best in a solo dog home but can tolerate a calm dog. Will need heartworm treatment but if the foster is local then a local rescue will raise the funds for the treatment and if not then I can finically help some for the treatment. Wants to be inside with people. Very very scared and timid.
