We went to the vet now to get Khaleesi's stitches removed and it turns out that she is quite famous around here. Before we even get in the door, I hear "Is that Khaleesi?! She's my favorite Rottweiler." Then when the vet tech came to do her stitch removal, she just rolled over on her back and let her pull them on out! She wiggles the entire time anyone is in the room and slobbers and licks everyone she sees. When the tech left the room and closed the door, I heard her say "There is one very happy Rottweiler in that room". We want to thank everyone again for all the donations and prayers for this girl! She is truly amazing and in typical Rottie style, she has made friends everywhere she has gone.

So, our little lady is awake after her TPLO surgery. She will get to come home tomorrow. For those of you who are following her progress, here is the info from the surgeon. It is Dr. Essig's opinion that Khaleesi has been in tremendous pain for a very long time. The damage to her joints is very very advanced. There were no strands of her ACL left, but they did remove what was left of her damaged meniscus. They then made a cut in the bone and rotated the piece, adding a plate and a pin to make the knee joint move properly. Before, the lower bone protruded forward constantly and the joint was painful. There was some arthritis in the joint, as we expected, and Khaleesi will need to be on glucosamine/chondroitin supplements indefinitely. She will need to always be kept lean and on a high quality food with her joint support supplements. She will be on pain meds and antibiotics when she returns home and soon will be in much less pain in her right leg. She will have to be on cage rest for 8 weeks and then can go back to have the same procedure on the left leg. We want to thank ALL OF YOU who are pitching in to help this baby. At less than two years old, she has already been through so much. Through all of this, and in constant pain, she has been nothing but sweet, affectionate, and full of love and trust. She is truly an angel.

Khaleesi is an awesome girl! Full of life and loves everything and every new adventure. She doesn't let her knees hinder her too much, but it's easy to see that she is slowing down, little by little. The need for her knee surgeries is becoming much more urgent as the days go by.
Please consider donating by clicking the "donate" button above. Any amount will a huge help a both her surgeries could total near $8,000.

Khaleesi is doing very well. She plays well with other large breed dogs and coexists with the cat as long as she is well supervised. She is quiet and clean in her crate and is a very happy and loving little lady. She loves all toys, plays fetch and tug and is learning to walk well on a leash. She knows basic obedience commands and will obey very well with the right motivation and without too many distractions.
Khaleesi will not do well in a home where livestock or small animals are present. Her prey drive is quite intense and she is very interested in all things small and fluffy.
She will do well with well behaved children over the age of 8 years old. She is completely unaware of her size and thinks she is a lap dog.
Khaleesi will require two TPLO surgeries costing between $2000-$3500 each. Her rear legs are quickly becoming worse. The right rear leg trembles almost constantly. She still bounces and runs and plays like a champ, but tires quickly.
She is a great girl and if it were not for the vet bill she is will be requiring, she would be staying here forever.

Please help us welcome back Khaleesi (formerly known as Tallulah) to MARR! It's been quite the journey for her, but our amazing group of volunteers pulled together to get her out of the Nebraska Humane Society within one day of finding out she had been surrendered there. Go team!
She's an awesome girl and we're looking forward to getting her into a much more stable forever home quickly! More info to come shortly.
If you’d like to adopt Khaleesi, you can visit our Adopt page where you can find information on our adoption policies, and fill out an application.
