Same shelter that Inky (pulled by me) and PJ (pulled by Rachael/NS4AR) came from. I may have a possible foster for her here in GA but am waiting on her evaluation from my contact at the shelter. Thought I'd post her just in case my foster falls through.
Hello my name is Milky Way and I am a stray here at the Animal Shelter. I currently weigh . I hope my family comes to claim me but if not I will be put up for adoption on at 10/14/11. My adoption fee is $90 and that covers my general exam, rabies vaccine, wormer, Bordetella vaccine, DA2PP vaccine, microchip and my spay/neuter. I may not be already altered but will be upon adoption. If you are interested in adopting me please call, email or come by the Animal Shelter to add your name to my wait list. Love Milky Way

She has been moved into a foster home (the same that had Inky and PJ). Very shy at the shelter. They estimated her around 10 months - didn't get a weight but was told she was very skinny. She also has 3/4 of a tail and the shelter said they've been getting a couple of those in the past months (B/W BC mixes with a shorter tail).
They took her to the vet this morning to get her vetted (she's HW negative) but they said she's very sick (throwing up, diarrhea, very lethargic). I urged them to parvo test her because she's still young but the county doesn't provide them with the funds. Her foster home took her home to treat her so for the moment, she is not available to go anywhere. Hopefully we will still have the foster room if or when she recovers.
Any update on this girl's health? This reminds me of a conversation with a friend from dog show circles (be nice...she also trials), where she mentioned what appears to be a new strain of parvo. It presents like parvo but does not test positive for parvo, and it hits adult dogs that have been vaccinated. Otherwise healthy dogs typically recover, but compromised dogs often don't. My neighbor's older toy fox terrier died of something eerily similar a couple weeks ago. Vets need to start taking notice.....

Yes, Google "dog show crud" and you can read more about it. It's not actually Parvo, though. A friend of mine had two dogs get sick with it earlier this year, and one didn't make it. The second one did, but only after she insisted they treat it like the "crud" vs Parvo. Both dogs actually tested low positive for Parvo, but partway into the second dogs recovery, he tested negative. (not saying this is what she has, but it's worth looking into)
They said she's gotten better and has a potential adopter coming to meet her tomorrow (Monday). If that falls through, we'll try to coordinate transport to get her here to GA (we just got two Aussies from them last night).
