Cristina ~ South Korean Rescue
Cristina was a pint-sized young lady that, as nervous as she was, craved human companionship. She wasn’t used to being handled or pet and was very shy, however, once she gains your trust, she will approach and request preferred seating right on your lap.
It was quickly noticed that Cristina did not eat much, preferring just soft treats and cheese. Further investigation revealed severe dental disease and an oral-nasal fistula. When she was spayed at our VCA clinic, our veterinarian considered it necessary to close the hole right then, with a full repair scheduled for the next week.
Everyone pulled together to bring Cristina comfort and relief – our staff, VCA partner, and her foster family, who cared for her through it all, crushing her medication into baby food for her, getting her to, from, and through her surgeries all while she healed and adjusted to an entirely new life. Cristina’s foster fell in love with her and decided to adopt her. Considering all that she has been through, her adopters, Rob and Maggie, say, “She is a little timid but can also be very affectionate as well. She is curious and likes to be around people.”
