Meet Tori! She is a sweet and eleven-year-old black female Labrador Retriever. Tori’s story is a sad one. WCLRR rescued Tori 10 months ago. Tori was in horrific condition. She had bloody feet, oozing open sores, and almost unable to walk. The volunteer who received Tori was in shock how anyone could allow a dog to continue living in this condition. WCLRR immediately took Tori to our veterinarian, stabilized her, and our doctor set up a treatment plan.
Tori endured several procedures over the course of several months. She had approximately thirty foxtails removed from her feet, ears, and her body. Some of these had embedded themselves deeply and required surgery. Tori’s foster family needed to soak her feet several times a day to help with the healing. Over time, the foster family saw significant improvements in Tori’s condition.
Tori had a few lumps removed and was treated for severe ear and skin infections. She had weekly visits to a specialist who gave her injections and medications. Tori may need medicated baths and weekly ear cleaning to keep the chance of infections at bay. She will also require allergy medication. Tori has been a trooper through all of this.
Tori is cute and intelligent and knows ‘Sit,’ ‘Stay,’ ‘lay-down,’ ‘drop it.’ Tori loves her walks, wanting to stay out longer and longer each day. Tori takes treats very gently. She is completely housebroken and uses the doggie door at her foster home.
Tori gets along great with her foster siblings, two other labs, and a little dog. She even adores the family cat. Tori enjoys sleeping on doggy beds and her foster Mom’s bed. Tori likes toys and is non-destructive.
Tori loves her people. She loves attention, a kind word, a gentle hand to pet her. Tori is such a sweet girl who, by no fault of her own, had a rough life before coming into WCLRR.
Tori is spayed, up to date on her shots, and microchipped.
