REGINA became a Castaway Critter just before Christmas 2012. She is estimated to be around 4 years old. Regina came to us with hip dysplasia on both sides. We believe she was used as a breeder dog. Regina came to us from a shelter in Maryland. She was under weight and in need of medical attention. Rita has now had surgery to correct her hips and is doing much better!
Under the care of Castaway Critters she recieved a left hip replacement in May 2013, from Palmyra Animal Hospital . Thanks to our wonderful donors who helped with the high medical expenses. The right hip required another operation that was done in July 2013. Due to complications Regina had to have a third operation on her hip in September 2013. A plate was placed in her leg. Regina is recouperating at Stonewood Farms and her caretaker said that she is improving.
Regina is approximately 83 lbs. Regina is good with people - she is the favorite at the vet office! The staff loves her! See her photo at the vet office above!!
Because of her size and strength, Regina would be best with an experienced dog owner. We are looking for that special someone that can handle her and give her the TLC she needs to heal. We just need her to be in the care of a good experienced dog person -so Regina can have a soft bed to lie on and a special person of her own.
