A beautiful little white, sweet, young puppy was taken to a city shelter and left. Our field operations supervisor met her and scratched her head about why this dog was there. She immediately became a TAPS dog and we gave her the name Pamm after one of our most beloved volunteer who had recently died.
About 10 days after coming into Operation Adopt, Pamm had a series of seizures. You can imagine how frightening it was for staff to watch this dainty puppy and feel utterly helpless. She was taken to an emergency vet and since that day she has had seizures on and off as we try to find a correct dose of anti-seizure medication.
What we think happened (and after speaking to more people about animals like Pamm coming to the shelter and confirming our speculations) is that whoever had her could not afford her care anymore so they took her to the shelter. While she may have had a build-up of anti-seizure medication in her system, it wore off and the seizures began again.
Lucky Pamm got into a foster home right away and while her foster mom has had many sleepless and feeling-helpless nights over the past few months, the seizures are finally under control.
We just know there is someone out there to adopt Pamm and who desires to help a very special, special-needs companion (who is great with babies, toddlers and other sweet dogs)!
