We have some very sad news to share As we had posted a few weeks ago we met Gracie at North Providence Shelter when we went to assess her behavior for one of our programs We found the sweetest girl with a story of neglect written all over her delicate body We knew right away something was not right Gracie's stumbling and falling constant panting and pacing and the necrotic tissue in her mouth told us we needed to have her seen by one of our veterinarians right away This dog is nothing short of amazing if she is even a dog at all Mama is convinced she is a baby silver panther and she is starting to convince me that might be the case The baby panther is social with other dogs great around children and exceedingly gentle But as we have had her as our occasional houseguest we have seen her pacing and panting and inability to settle much of the time It's heart wrenching As we expected we were told Gracie's issues were likely neurological so we took the first appointment we could get at Ocean State Veterinary Specialists with their neurologist Dr Marini who would be seeing her this past Tuesday morning We waited until now to share the news because we wanted to let the small group of folks who care about Gracie shelter staff and volunteers hear the news from Mama rather than here on Facebook The news is not good Gracie has a brain tumor It's advanced The pacing and panting and inability to settle is the stuff that brought up a conversation about quality of life with Dr Marini Here at Handsome Dan's Rescue we firmly believe in quality over quantity when it comes to these things We discussed with Dr Marini how to ensure her quality is good and the best way to help Gracie Even though her mouth is horrendous some of her teeth could likely be pulled by human hands with little effort and the presence of the pungent smell from the necrotic tissue Dr Marini advised that this is the least of her worries So her mouth is what it is We don't know how much good time Gracie will have left We have started her on prednisone to see if that can help with her discomfort pacing panting etc We have decided to keep her here at my house for the week to closely monitor any changes from the pred and make sure she has frequent potty breaks and as much food as she would like Gracie loves walks While walking even though she is very slow and can't go very far her tail wags as she stops to take in every smell We want Gracie to have all the things she wants She is only 7 or 8 years old but has the body of a much older dog due to prolonged neglect and breeding Only time will tell if the prednisone can help her and when it will be time to let her go We have added a few things to our wish list to help make her more comfortable if you click on the wish list and there is nothing noted for Gracie specifically then all items have been purchased! Gracie can not handle a regular dog bed She can't step up onto it without falling and even folded up blankets can be problematic as her feet can get tangled and send her into a panic Mats will be better Here is our Amazon wish list thank you in advance if you decide to send Gracie a present httpacoce1FAlF We would like to find a Compassion Hold hospice foster for the baby silver panther Someone who knows going in how difficult this will be She needs to be loved fiercely gently and then she needs to be loved enough to be let go when it is time Handsome Dan's Rescue will cover all of her medical costs and supplies for the remainder of her life The compassion hold foster would need to be in Southern New England and able to get her to Ocean State in East Greenwich andor Coventry Animal Hospital regularly We hope for a home where she can have a fenced yard or small space where we can set up a pen where she can sniff in the sunshine and enjoy the outdoors Her compassion hold foster will need to be very patient as Gracie's pacing and panting will likely increase and her ability to hold her bladder will likely continue to decrease Mama will be very picky this baby panther will have the very best of everything We will work hard to make sure that her last months or weeks are so wonderful that she can try to forget the sad years prior The compassion hold foster will receive the same level of support as our regular foster care providers which is second to none in rescue If you might want to provide this compassion hold for Gracie please email Mama directly at heather@obhoundscom She is happy to answer any questions you may have and if it seems like a good fit you can apply here httpwwwhandsomedansrescueorgadoption-application For more on our Compassion Hold program created in Tillie's memory httpwwwhandsomedansrescueorghomeprogramscompassion-hold-program #BabySilverPanther #TeamTillie Huge thanks to the folks who have been helping Gracie thus far Thank you Ernie and Sue at North Providence Shelter Elizabeth Sara and Karen at EGAPL who has been taking Gracie on walks Thank you to the folks at Povar and Ocean State Thank you to Jacqueline Baffoni Pam Wilmarth Trisha Torres Leslie Davis and everyone else who has worried and hoped for Gracie Meme
