"SKEETA" was picked up from Renbury Farm Shelter, in February 2004.
When she first came to Paws n Hooves, she was in a terrible condition. She was terribly under weight and had been "fly struck" from head to tail. Her frail little body was covered in sores many of which were open and bleeding. At first, her carers Narelle and Paul, were concerned that her condition was so bad that she may not even survive.
She soon settled in and was getting along really well but then suddenly for no apparent reason she became very ill and wasn't able to eat or drink, she was rushed to one of our vets and as she was so badly dehydrated the vet put her straight on to a drip.
After spending just over a week in hospital, she came home to her carers' place and her miracle recovery finally began.
She soon started to put on some weight and when she was fit and healthy, she went back to the vet's to be de-sexed and have her dew claws removed.
Again, all seemed to be going well but then this poor little baby developed a really bad infection in the wounds from her dew claws so back to the vets she went for a course of strong antibiotics.
Finally, "Skeeta" turned the corner and became one of the most loving, beautiful, and terribly cheeky little puppies you could ever meet.
Meanwhile, on the other side of town, Amanda was searching the internet looking for a new canine companion. She stumbled on to the Paws n Hooves website and spotted "Skeeta" and her brother "Skoota".
It must have been love at first sight ! Several phone calls and e-mails later, Amanda arrived at the carer's home with her mum and dad in tow. It didn't take very long for Amanda and "Skeeta" to hit it off, so off to her new home she went.
As well as a new loving home and family on Sydney's northern beaches, "Skeeta" was renamed "Maverick".
"Maverick" soon became a common sight walking around the northern beaches with her new "mum" and "grandparents". She was enrolled in obedience classes and soon started to top the class in everything. She also made Amanda really proud by mastering all the agility equipment as soon as she was introduced to it.
"Maverick" is now a common sight with her mum Amanda every weekend at the Bayview doggy park and she also spends a lot of her time as a constant companion for Amanda laying under the tables at a lot of the sidewalk cafes and coffee shops around the northern beaches.
From a skinny, scabby and sickly little girl, Maverick has truly grown up to become a really beautiful young lady.
This is truly a case of "PATHETIC POUNDIE TO PAMPERED POOCH"
Come and have a look at the pets we have re-homed!!
