Tala in Pennsylvania

Post by Hawthorne » Mon Dec 10, 2012 9:25 pm

Hello All,

There is a Tamaskan in need of rehoming here in Pennsylvania. She will not be coming through the NTCA rescue because she is not pedigree Tamaskan. However, I have offered to help the owner find a new home for her.

She is 3 years old, and has epilepsy. The family has come on very hard times with crippling medical bills for themselves. They have lost everything with the exception of their home. At this time, they feel that rehoming their much loved dog is the best thing for her. They cannot afford to continue to pay their own medical bills, or their beloved Tala's.

Tala is good with children as they have kids of their own. Tala is good with other dogs--may be shy at first but warms up and then loves to play. She is a bit mouthy--but sounds to be not anything out of the realm I have experienced with my own Tams.

She needs daily doses of drugs to control her epilepsy. She has not been spayed and is behind on her vaccines.

If you would like more information, please PM me. I know the dam and sire of this girl but was asked to not disclose publicly. This girl will require a very special home and may very well need expensive vet care in the future.

Sorry to hear this, poor Tala.

I hope she finds a good home, have/are you put her on your Facebook page?

Best of luck trying to find her a home, very sorry for the owners too, must be heartbreaking enough what they're going through. :(

Besides the medication she gets for her epilepsy did they also kept a dairy and do they feed raw?
I know( by having an epileptic girl) it can help to know the triggers for an attack and food also support them allot.
Being behind on the vaccination isn't in that case so bad if she doesn't have to go over a boarder
I do hope that she will be spayed soon because the period of heat also have many triggers for an attack.

It is that I already have a full house and she is to far away but I will be praying for this girl that she finds the right home for her.

She's very pretty, but what is that black box on her neck?

'Invincible fence' maybe?

Yeah, I was thinking it was probably something like that... but then I was wondering what effect it might have on her epilepsy (could it be a trigger, etc)?

My grandma had a collar with a black box on it. It was 'supposed' to stop dogs barking (it didn't work)... Dog barks and it sets off a highly annoying to dogs high frequency sound...
Well, it's a better thought than the invisible fence :D

She looks like Luna a bit, any relation? Distant maybe? I hope she finds a nice home soon. She is very beautiful...

The black box could also be a pet tracker.

It is good to know for a possible new owner. It can support the new owner and Like Debby said if that box is an Invincible fence or something else that gives a sound, vibration,shock or smell it can be a trigger.....

They have not kept a diary and regret not doing so. They do not feed raw. Denise has told the current owners that she needs to be spayed and brought up to date on shots to be adopted.

Ok. I would also advice them to feed raw. In kibble there are expiration substances that also work as triggers....

I will suggest that to the potential new owners, but I doubt very much that the current owners could afford this. They have all but lost their house...

Whilst I know she is behind with her shots, there seems to be evidence that over-vaccination can cause epilepsy and I have just found this link regarding rabies shots.

That is why I said that it wasn't a bad thing that she was behind on it but I also know that having a dog re-homed does demand those shots no matter this whole story. But it is adviceble when she is in a new home not to give her every year her shots.

She's almost identical to our Loki and Hank.

Has she found a new home yet?

Yes the original owners managed to regime her with a coworker. She lived in RedLion--which you will probably recognize being from SC Pennsylvania.
We are in Harrisburg. You should visit us sometime!

So glad she found a good home, so many folks having to rehome their pets due to this crummy economy. Must be heartbreaking. We're blessed to be able to keep our 4-legged family members well fed and medically sound.

Harrisburg is just a hop, skip and jump away. We'd LOVE to visit. Perhaps we can forklift "the boys" into the SUV, pack a picnic lunch and make a quick run someday soon.

Thanks for the invite, I'll make sure to call/email in advance so as to not be an inconvience.
