In 2015, I was volunteering at LaPlata County Humane Society as a dog walker. Brixie was a shelter resident who had arrived as an owner surrender. Shortly after her arrival, she started to show signs of a allergies. After a couple of months, her eyes were almost swollen shut and her ears were also very puffy. She was receiving treatment from the medical staff, but the stress of being isolated in the shelter was not helping her get better. After talking with the veterinarian and the director of the shelter, they agreed that placing her in my home as a foster would help with the healing. It took a couple of months, but she finally healed, and was adopted shortly after.
