Glad this worked out for you, Dax! Keep in mind that senior dogs have their own particular issues the same way puppies do, and if your friend's health has been failing for some time you may want to take Miley for a general health check for her teeth and bloodwork. I'm a little concerned for you about her age. We took in my aunt's 13 year old male doberman Stomp when she went into palliative care. It was a privilege to live with him, he was such a gentle, thoughtful dog, and he was a wonderful role model for our much younger female. But he had advanced DCM and was a three time cancer survivor. Within a few months his heart continued to get worse and he developed an aggressive cancerous lump on his foot. Tl:dr I didn't know nearly enough about DCM when he came to stay with us so it's good to do your homework on any existing health conditions with a professional.
