Senior Dog Just Wants a Home

It was in the terrible February cold that people began to see a beautiful dog in the streets of their town. The brindle-colored dog was all alone on those icy streets, navigating Rochester, New York by herself. Her body was covered in tumors and her face was gray and she eventually ended up in the local shelter as a stray dog. It was there that she waited for five days, hoping someone would claim her. Sadly, no one ever came for the dog and she was placed on a euthanasia list. However, that is when her luck turned and a group of volunteers from the Brindle Posse Rescue came to get her. They also gave the dog a name: Yolanda.

The shelter she was in felt she was a lost cause because of both her age and her medical conditions, as she was determined to have cancer. Yolanda had golf ball sized tumors on her stomach and chest that kept bleeding and doctors said the cancer was advanced. She was quite sick. So, her foster mom, a woman named Jennifer Corbit, took her to the veterinarian. Yolanda had mammary cancer, likely the result from never being spayed in her ten years of life. While her story is not known, it is thought that Yolanda was used for breeding, then dumped when she got old and sick.

Though she was thought to only have a few months left to live, doctors still performed the surgery and it was successful. Yolanda’s health improved drastically after the procedure—and so did her outlook. Yolanda got excited when her foster mom came home and loved to go for walks and play with toys. She loves to be active, much not nearly as much as she just loves to take naps all day. Yolanda has made such progress, now all she needs is someone to adopt her!
