Update on Janis!
I am pleased to inform you that Janis, the puppy who was rescued by Sheila Iyengar 2 weeks ago, is in a loving foster home and thriving! Janis was checked for Tick Fever due to the number of ticks embedded on her. Her blood test results revealed that she was indeed positive for tick fever but only slightly. There is one treatment for Tick Fever and unfortunately dogs need to be a little older than Janis before they can take this medication. The Veterinarian's will put her on it when she is a little bit older. A little over a week ago, Janis's Foster mom noticed that she was not eating or playing like a puppy should. She took Janis to her vet where it was revealed she had a foreign body blockage in her intestines. Turned out it was........Pistachios!
Janis was probably eating these nuts when she was still on the Reservation. As for now, she is doing fantastic! She is recovering nicely after surgery and is once again eating and playing. I think Janis is on the right path to finding her own loving family real soon! Thank you, to all of you who showed concern and support for this special little lady. I promise to let you know more whenever I hear about her!

Here are a few simple tips to help keep you safe.

If you hike: 
 • Tap ahead of you with a walking stick before entering an area where you can't see your feet. Snakes will try to avoid you if given enough warning. • When hiking in an area known to have snakes, wear long pants and boots if possible
 • Consider purchasing a snake kit Avoid rock piles or tall green grass/bushes where snakes like to rest. 

About 150 people in Arizona are bitten every year. 
Some of Arizona’s rattlesnakes can also be lethal. 

Scottsdale is notorious for having snakebites and s…

National Adopt a dog month

National Adopt a dog month  And National Adopt a Shelter dog month

Are you thinking about adopting a dog? Has the thought crossed your mind in the past few months? If so, that's great! This is the perfect month for you to get down to business and do just that!

You might be looking simply for a companion, maybe a hiking pal, a friend for your grandparents or parents, how about an agility hopeful, or just a happy, warm face to welcome you home each day? Then this might just be the perfect timing!

Across the valley there are numerous places that you can choose from to adopt a dog. Many Shelters are full and have weekend discounts so they can open up space for new dogs. Unfortunately some will be placed on the E-List almost immediately due to its breed, temperament or health.

A dog that is on the "E-List" (to be euthanized) is commonly a dog that might have growled when captured or put into a kennel, but it doesn't necessarily mean they are aggressive.

They were SCARED.
