TOPEKA KANSAS: UPDATED: JAN. 22ND; SOPHIE IS NOW IN A FOSTER HOME BUT STILL LOOKING FOR AN ADOPTIVE HOME
Sophie is a 1 yo female Anatolian Shepherd Dog. She came into the shelter on December 18th, nearly dead. She was taken to a local vet clinic where she was diagnosed with meningitis. She is on prednisone now and, although she is still very weak, she is better than she was when she first came in.
Sophie has been at the vet clinic for almost a month now and we really need to find a loving foster home where she can get some TLC.
She is considered "special needs" right now bc she needs someone who isn't gone for long periods of time since she needs frequent potty breaks.
She is on prednisone and that causes her to need to potty more than usual.
Since she is still weak and skinny, she needs to be in a warm, dry place where she will not get cold.
She weighs 71 and the vet rated her body condition only a "2".
Meningitis is transmitted by mosquitoes so she is not contagious to other dogs.
If you might be able to help this poor girl, please let us know. We will do our best to help with transport if possible. For more information, please email Carleen at
