UPDATE - 22 OCTOBER 2018: Rhianna had her eye removed and is now recovering nicely at her new foster home. Here is what her foster family had to say when they brought her home: We picked up Rhianna Saturday evening. She did very well on trip home, mostly stayed on all fours in back of the car watching traffic and doing a little bit of whimpering as she wanted up front with us. Once home she took to the house like it as hers. At first, Daisy (resident beagle) was a bit miffed with the stranger wearing a cone, but now has gotten used to her. She knows stairs, even with the cone on, and how to ask to go out back since the "cone of shame" doesn't go through the doggy door well. She'll love the day we can take that off permanently! (We have a couple times, she's a happy happy wild child racing around with Daisy and Dixie!) Rhianna loves laps (with or without cone!) and cuddling up with you, and is a very well adjusted little girl. Missing the eye doesn't seem to bother her a bit.
We really think she was a family dog, not a hunter, that was either let loose or ran away, and appears to have had at least one litter in past 6-8 months.
UPDATE - 13 OCTOBER 2018: Rhianna came to visit us at the adoption event today as she gets ready to have her eye treated. This is a little girl with an ugly eye but a beautiful personality! She is very sweet and had a great time with all the other dogs and people. She will be having her eye treated this week, and then she will be heading off to a foster home to recover and get some much needed TLC.
NEW - 8 OCTOBER 2018: Little Rhianna came to BREW with a ruptured eye that will need to be removed. She is a cute little girl who will look much better once her eye is fixed. She is about 3 years old and weighs about 18 pounds. She is friendly, social, and she appears to get along well with other dogs. She has already been vaccinated, spayed, and is heartworm negative, so we are hoping her only vetting left to complete will be related to her eye. She was a stray at the Gloucester Mathews Humane Society in Virginia, so her history is unknown. She will be available soon for fostering or adoption.
