16 To The Rescue – Susie

In this week’s 16 To The Rescue, we meet a crossbreed dog named Susie. She’s probably only 2 or 3 years old, but she doesn’t have much time left.

COLUMBIA COUNTY, Pa. — The lop-eared hugger we meet this week is Susie. She is a dog mix and was found living on the streets a few months ago and has been at the Animal Resource Center near Bloomsburg ever since. Susie is probably only 2 or 3 years old but has an illness that will likely shorten her lifespan. So, ARC rescuers are determined to find her the most special home.

“Susie loves people. She loves being around people. So definitely a house where someone would be home more often than not, she would really love. Whatever time she has, if she could just being with her people, she loves being a pet and paying attention,” said Mattie Wilson, Animal Resource Center.

Susie has a type of cancer called mammary carcinoma, basically breast cancer in dogs, something she developed while being stray and unspayed.

Her operation to remove the lump only took place about two weeks ago and she is recovering well, but doctors say the cancer will most likely return within the next six months.

“She doesn’t seem to be in pain. She has a pretty big incision from which they removed the lump. She’s a very happy girl. She loves kids, everyone, gets along great with all dogs. We need a home for her that doesn’t have cats,” Wilson said.

ARC rescuers are hoping Susie can live a few more great years, and they think she would make the perfect pet. All she needs is a good family willing to give her the love and home she deserves.

“Our vet says there really isn’t much to do for health. So really, we just want her to be in a home where she can play and be the happy young dog that she is” , Wilson said.
