My BRAT permanent foster, Annie, is 16 1/2, will be 17 in December. I am just trying to keep her comfortable since she has arthritis and neurological problems. She has eye and hearing problems also but those are common in old age. She has a good appetite but it is hard to keep weight on her and she looks thin.
My Fanconi affected girl, Missy, will be 12 in December and is doing fine. One would never know she has Fanconi by looking at her.
I am sure you found out that the breeder in OK, Sheila Maxwell does no health testing and the last time I checked her pups are advertised on Puppyfind.com as a bargain for $550 and are ACA registered, not AKC registered. Did she give you pedigree information for the pup?
