Arriving to New England 9-23!
This absolutely STUNNING Bernese Mountain Dog recently came to us after suffering from an intestinal blockage for over three weeks - her prior owners didn’t seek vet care until it was truly almost too late - they wanted to surrender her to a rescue and we were more than happy to help. It was found at surgery that she had a sock stuck in her intestines - she had to have some section of her bowel resected but she ended up bouncing back pretty quickly.
Because surgery was delayed so long, she came to the clinic at 59 lb, well under her normal weight of approx. 90-100 lb. She is gaining weight however rapidly now that she’s healthy.
Juby is approx. 18 months of age we believe as reported by the family. They also reported she’s a purebred BMD but we of course don’t have her AKC papers and therefore cannot guarantee her purebred status (and quite frankly we do not care).
Her foster mom says she has joined her family pack without issue. She gets along with the other dogs and she is a joy with humans!
She has not been exposed to children as far as we know but that is going to happen before she leaves for New England.
It will be important that she be monitored to not ingest anything that may cause another blockage as she would certainly struggle with another surgery (which is quite expensive as well).
