Meet Gypsy Mist
New to OCDRT on 8/30/2014, Gypsy Mist is a regal female who was born in 2002. Don't let her age make you pass her by, this girl still has a spring in her step & an demeanor that requests the other fosters respect her. She is very sweet with her humans & just wants attention. She was owner surrendered for 'wandering off when not kenneled'. Just 3 years ago she was out west and made her way to Ohio after being obtained at a sale barn. We will get Gypsy Mist in for a full physical & determine what procedures are in her best interests, potential dental & mammary growth removal, along with standard vetting.
Please check back as we get to know her over the next 2 – 3 weeks.

Gypsy Mist had a vet appointment to receive her rabies vaccine, 4DX test, and a Senior Blood Panel to clear her for a mammary tumor removal, spay, and potential dental. Her exam went very well & she loved the attention. She crates like a dream, is eating well, and seems to be house trained. Please cross your fingers and paws that she is heartworm and tick disease negative!

Very sad to report Gypsy is heartworm positive. Her bloodwork was good otherwise & she is tick disease free. All her other issues that need attention are now on hold. Our team of vets will decide what is in her best interest to give her the best quality of life for her remaining years. The really upsetting part is ALL her issues could have been prevented with proper care. This is why we push to educate the public on proper animal health. Gypsy is suffering the price of an owner who didn't give her proper care. She will never face that again, she will never walk alone.

Gypsy received her first heartworm injection for treatment. She was very brave! These is by no means an easy treatment for her, however she needs these to have a quality of life. She will be on crate rest for the next 30 days, then will receive her next two injections.

Gypsy has received the last of her heartworm injections. She was once again so very stoic and brave. She will be under crate rest and restricted activity for the next 30 days. Our vet will re-evaluate at that time for activity and her spay surgery, including removing her mammary mass, which is scheduled for 11/25.

Gypsy had her spay and mammary mass removal surgery last Tuesday. She stayed in hospital until Friday due to the intensity of the surgery & her age with heart condition. She has completed her hw treatment and has a grade 5 heart murmur. She came home on Friday and is resting comfortably & recovering nicely. She has a recheck on 12/5 to have her staples removed. The mass was sent out for results. We will post once we receive them.

Mass results are benign!

Gypsy is completely healed from her surgery and finally ready for her forever home! Gypsy just wants food and love from her person. She still plays fetch and loves to go on adventures. Gypsy would do best in a single dog home where she can have all the attention which she deserves.
May 24, 2015
Gypsy had a successful meeting & is settling in at her forever home.

Gypsy Mist is officially adopted! Thank you to the Kress family for adopting our sweet senior who patiently waited 9 months for this to happen!
