Giving Lisa a Second Chance

Share

Lisa came to Second Chance Canine Adoption Shelter over a year ago.  She is a sweet friendly 6 year old cattle dog/pit bull terrier mix that will melt your heart.  When she came to Second Chance, she was riddled with bumps all over her skin and she could barely wear a collar as it would rub her skin raw.  The crew at Second Chance spent many weeks, months trying to determine the cause and how to control this.

After what seemed like a long time, Lisa was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Pemphigus Foliaceus.  After her treatments with meds and special baths her skin is so much improved, she looks like a different dog.

She will continue to need to take medications to keep this disorder under control.  Since she required special treatments for her skin, I think Lisa reaped the benefits of receiving quite a lot of special pampering from staff.  She is so sweet and friendly, though, that it’s  hard not to give her a lot of attention. Lisa was one of the “stars” of the kissing booth this summer, giving anyone who came by to visit a nice big kiss.  Lisa loves children, and would prefer to just lay in your lap and cuddle as opposed to running.  She loves car rides, she is okay with cats, but would prefer to be the only dog in the huse

Her fervent wish for Christmas was to have a forever home to go to.  Despite pampering from the shelter crew, it is not the same as having a second chance at a loving home.

Lisa did not get her wish for Christmas, but with the New Year brings a Blank Slate for the future.  Lisa is hoping that future will bring a family that won’t just glance, but take a second chance on her.

As part of the New Year, I have taken up a challenge with some other Professional Pet photographers for Project 52.  The challenge is to have a blog each week on a certain topic.  With the New Year, we are starting with a Blank Slate.  It is inspiring to hear other photographer’s  take on the subject for the week.    I invite you to follow our blog circle to Salty Paw Pet Photography (owner Nancy Hedtke) , serving the Savannah, GA area to see her interpretation of the subject.  There are several new photographer’s that have joined the blog this year.  If you have trouble completing the circle the first time through.  Try again in a few hours as we will have worked out the kinks.  Then continue to follow our blog circle around until you return to this page.  Have fun!

  1. It makes me sad to hear about these sweet souls being treated like this. Thank goodness she has now known some human kindness. I hope she finds her furever humans that love her!

  2. Good luck Lisa. What a cutie! And how marvellous that the shelter people have spent so much time helping her. They are special people!

  3. I love to see the turn around when a dog receives proper care. Lisa is a lovely girl, and I hope she finds her forever home soon. Thank you for taking the time, and giving your time, to help find homes for shelter pets.

  4. Lisa, I hope your forever home finds you soon. I’m a firm believer that there is a person for every dog and a dog for every person. Sometimes it just takes more time to bring the two together. Sending good thoughts your way! A wonderful face to start of the project, Nancy.
