Photos & Updates on Flame from the Baltimore Rescue
Sponsor: Christine Walker
Our sincere Thanks! and Malinois Hugs go out to each and every person that responded to this Emergency Rescue. While many people offered sponsorship of the dogs, others indicated that their donation should provide food or be applied where needed. We have foster homes for all but three of them and the first five are either in their foster home as of last night, 4/14/07, or will arrive shortly.
The Rescue Volunteers have dubbed them *The Dirty Dozen*, however the first ones to move out of the kennel are reported, by transporters and fosters, to be typical Malinois choosing to stay clean when provided an opportunity to eliminate outside. Yipppeeee!!!!! Let's hope that trend continues!
Flame's transport to her foster home began this morning, April 21st. We will provide updates from the foster home as soon as Flame has had a chance to settle!
Flame's Foster Home 4/27/07
Flame has gone to the nursing home, the groomers, and dog training. She adjusts well, but still wants to stay close to me. She has had her ups and downs with potty breaking, but is coming along. The biggest problem was the stairs outside. She has gone up to everyone and has taken treats when offered. I think she has gained some weight, but still is very thin.
She is much more active at home. She has started to play and will tell off the boys if they get to wild. She is sending mixed signals because she goes belly down when she tells them off. She also takes a soft correction well. She doesn't seem to know her name very well, so I may give her something more fitting her.
Again, thanks to all the people that helped her get to where she is.

Flame has been doing just fine. She is such a sweet girl. She went to work at the nursing home with Barb on Sunday. She was fine with adults, kids, wheel chairs and the like. She willingly took cookies from everyone. She has been just fine with all the dogs she has met and they have been just fine with her. At present it looks more like a physical rehab more than anything else. We will see how she does around my cat this Thursday evening.

Flame came outside today and started playing with my guys. I think she is feeling much better. Not the normal Malinois play, but they are anything but normal :-)

I picked Flame up yesterday after her spay and she was still very groggy. She threw up some last night and on the overnight. That was to be expected from what the vet said. Due to her weight being so low, he said to give her an additional 24 hours to want to eat. Rest is the key per Dr. Richards at VCA Old Trail. He suggested boiled chicken for when she does want to eat in small quantities.
Other than the vomit, Flame did not mess in her crate at all. First thing this morn., she went outside and did her business. Currently she is sleeping in her crate with the door open. I think it's probably the first place she's been that has not had dogs barking constantly. I know how my guys are when they come back from being boarded - they sleep for 2 days!
