Sandrita

Sandrita (female, born approx January 2012)

Sandrita was rescued near the Paradisus resort in Playa Del Carmen.  She has been diagnosed with TVT.  Transmissible Venereal Tumor (or TVT), is a naturally occurring tumor that is sexually transmitted from one dog to another. It is usually very treatable.  

It was thought that Sandrita may have an owner as she was free of fleas and ticks, and also interacts very well with people.  Although we tired, no owner was found.

Sandrita is currently undergoing treatment for TVT and will be available for adoption soon!
