Friday Find-A-Friend; Sugar, Female, Sharpei X

When Sugar was first brought to the RSPCA she was in bad shape. She had been struggling to feed a litter of pups with inadequate food and was extremely emaciated and unwell. Vet staff and Animal Attendents who have been with the RSPCA for many, many years were shocked at Sugars state. Though, after many weeks of special care and a little R+R, Sugar's condition improved and her beautiful personaility began to shine through. And it must be said, she is sweeter than a bowl of honey coated sugar cubes!

Sugar is a very affectionate dog and loves cuddles. She is looking for a home where she will get regular walks and exercise, and where she will also be included in family life as much as possible. Sugar is social with other dogs but any potential doggy mates should be introduced to her at the shelter prior to adoption, as she sometimes gets annoyed by over excited dogs.

Sugar is not suitable for a home with cats or other small pets as she will chase them.

Sugar has had some problems with ear infections while in the care of the RSPCA, and it is likely she will require extra care (such as regular cleaning and possibly intermittent medical treatments) for her ears for the rest of her life.

She is currently being fed with a special low allergy food to help prevent a recurrence of her ear problems, and she nmay need to remain on this diet for life.

Potential new owners are required to attend a consult with an RSPCA vet before adopting Sugar so her ear problems and dietary requirements can be properly discussed.

Sugar is available from the RSPCA Yagoona Shelter.
