Mary Poppins is an elderly lab mix who was found as a stray in DeLand by a waitress at a local restaurant. Her owner couldn't be found, and we assume she was probably abandoned as it seems unlikely she would have run away. Her left rear leg is crooked, and she walks very stiffly. She has a lot of fatty tumors, has skin problems, and is missing a lot of teeth. She apparently had had many litters of puppies. We are treating her with the cold laser machine to try to ease any pain and inflammation.
Mary Poppins is sweet, gentle, and friendly with people. She seems to be an alpha personality with the other dogs and doesn't always get along with them. She currently lives in the computer room with our cat Minnie.
Mary Poppins tells her story in our August, 2016 newsletter.
