About Cheyenne

Cheyenne was pulled from a high kill shelter in GA on her last day one year ago. All the odds were against her..she had severe skin infections...stage 4 heartworm...and mammary tumors.  No one gave her any hope...not the shelter...not the vet...but Southern Cross saw a strength and will to live in her...and did not give up on her.

She is a special girl indeed..and fast forward one year...her skin infections have cleared up...and she has successfully gone through heartworm treatment. Her strength and will to live are amazing...as are her kind heart and ability to love everyone...despite a life of neglect.

Now..she faces her biggest hurdle..her mammary tumor. Until this time..her health prevented us from tackling this. But now...the specialist feels she can go through surgery successfully (her breathing has improved dramtically..all vitals are good..and x-rays are clear for mets). It is now urgent though that she have the surgery to survive. Her tumor has grown to the point where it will rupture soon and is ulcerating. Without removal...she has little hope. But with surgery...her future looks very optimistic.

Cheyenne is the sweetest soul you could ever meet....she loves everyone and everything....loves to mother puppies and kitties...greet fellow dogs with a kind hello and an old lady attempt at a playbow....cuddle on the couch...and give kisses....and appreciates every kind word and pat on the head. She loves life and shows her appreciation every moment of every day. We are blessed that Southern Cross saw her worth.

Please help us...help her...

Cheyenne thanks you from the bottom of her sweet heart for any consideration.
