Hello, I'm Thea!
Update: THEA BEAT CANCER AND HEARTWORMS!!!
Thea is a beautiful, gentle, and snuggly pittie mix with a pout that is hard to resist. She does great with small and large dogs, cats, and children-- she has lived with them all!
Thea was found on a nearby church property. When she was initially spotted, she was very pregnant. When someone came back to check on her, it was clear she had given birth, but it didn't seem like any of the puppies made it. She was covered in scabs and her skin was crawling with fleas. Without a place for her to go, eventually she was picked up by the city and taken to the shelter. With Houston shelter's so overcrowded, she quickly hit the "Euthanize" list. Luckily, a hero stepped up to foster her and let her know what love and care is all about!
Thea is heartworm positive and was recently diagnosed with cancer. She is undergoing chemo treatment and the Vet says there is a 95% success rate. Sweet Thea has been such a champ through all of this and everyone at the vets office comments on how sweet, calm and gentle she is. So, never judge a book by its cover because you may just miss an amazing story! She may look a little grumpy and serious in her photos, but she is full of soooo much love, just waiting to give it to whoever her forever family could be! Please consider giving this loving soul a chance!
