Is there anyone who could take her on a permanent basis? She would probably be better off if someone could be there with her full time. I guess just try different food to see if she will eat. I'm so sorry about your friend.
If you can get her to me, I would take her in a heart beat! I can't come get her because of the goats and an unreliable vehicle.I'm going to throw this out here and see if anyone has any suggestions. About 2 weeks ago a friend died. He had a dog that had been left with him around a year ago. Now, I really know very little about this dog. She is a border collie or australian shepherd. No clue how old. Very, very shy....will hide from almost everyone (you didn't know Wes had a dog unless you just happened to catch a glimpse of her). She is house broke. She goes outside a couple times a day and then goes to a back corner of the house and lays there (how she's always been) Scared of other animals (won't go near the sheep pens at all) Wes had cancer and died at home. There is someone going to the house and letting Jill out and taking care of her. Yesterday she quit eating and drinking. We honestly don't even know if she is up to date on shots, etc. She needs groomed super badly. Bringing her to my house is not really an option as my dog is a super-dominant breed and will bully this poor little girl horribly. The girl that is taking care of her is in the same position with having a large puppy that will maul poor Jill with play. We're going to try getting her into the vet this morning....
Do any of you have any ideas for us on getting her to eat and drink? She would take treats from Wes, but not from anyone else...so treats aren't working very well. I'm actually surprised it took this long for this issue to come up....Any suggestions are welcome.
Where in Wyoming are you? We are in the NW corner of Kansas....about 50 miles from both the Co and Ne borders. If you are serious about her, we could work something out.If you can get her to me, I would take her in a heart beat! I can't come get her because of the goats and an unreliable vehicle.
I am very serious! I am roughly 4 miles west of Torrington, 85 miles northeast from the Wyoming/Colorado border and about 13 miles west of the Wyoming/Nebraska border. I cannot explain it, but I know in my heart that I can help her - and she can help me. I know it doesn't make sense, but it is what it is.Where in Wyoming are you?

It makes perfect sense..you have a heart to help her and she needs the help..Perfect fit. I hope it works out and they can get her to you...I know it doesn't make sense, but it is what it is.
He died at home and was found by my young (16 yr old) friend who was helping him with his sheep and driving him wherever he needed to go. Jill was near the body when she and her brother walked into the house. He'd been pretty ill for some time so Jill knew there was something happening and then....well....it's been rough for both my young friend and poor little Jill. I'm hoping we can get her to Jean in Wyoming!!! Sounds like the distance is doable...Do you know if she got to say goodbye to her owner?
