Shelter Dogs  

Maddie's® Shelter Medicine Program at Cornell


Bristol smiles through it all!

BristolBristol was brought to the SPCA of Tompkins County late on a Friday afternoon with severe bite wounds on her arms, face and belly from being on the losing end of a dog fight. Thanks to the vets and students of the Maddie's Shelter Medicine Program, she received immediate emergency treatment and recovered well.
Bristol is currently available for adoption. She listens well, is curious about her surroundings and is always in search of her next treat! Because of her past, she is a little unsure about other dogs (rightfully so), and most of the time she sports a rather goofy -- perhaps grateful -- grin. Just another day in lifesaving work!{back}
