Dutchess is an approximately 7-8 yr old German shepherd weighing around 65lbs. She was found as a stray with a mammary tumor in southern Indiana before coming north to Rover Rescue.

After 4 hours of surgery to remove the mammary tumor half the size of a baseball, a nipple, a cyst on her back and spaying, Dutchess came through with flying colors. She will eventually need a dental cleaning but the vet didn't want to keep her under anesthesia any longer.

Updated bio -
Dutchess' tumor biopsy came back positive for cancer. Doc removed it all but we don't know how long Dutchess will live. It could be years, it could be months.

Dutchess was interested in the clinic cats but only sniffed them. She pawed at visitors to the clinic trying to get someone to take her home. Dutchess rides well in the car and takes an interest in traffic.

Absolutely NO other female dogs. Dutchess does not seem to like them.

As of now, her foster mother has observed that Dutchess will stare into your eyes at 630am to see if you are awake. She should weigh more than 80lbs, so needs to gain more weight as her bones are visible. Dutchess must have been in a house at one point because she seems housetrained, climbs stairs, enters doorways without skittishness and found the master bedroom immediately. She doesn't appear to have arthritis and seems to hear and see quite well.
