Jitterbug, aka CTR Jitterbug, is an 8-year-old white and brindle female born February 7, 2003. Her sire is My Rooster, and her dam is Macarena Lil. There are 54 races to Jitterbug's credit starting at Ebro in Florida on October 20, 1004, and finishing at Naples-Ft. Myers on August 12, 2005. Jitterbug was one of 11 dogs taken into custody by Ft. Worth Animal Control Cruelty Investigators on August 11, 2010, from a residence in Ft. Worth. Jitterbug was covered with ticks, was heartworm positive and was carrying a heavy burden of intestinal parasites. She had positive titers to Ehrlichia and Babesia. Pictures of her at this time can be seen here. Successful treatment for all has been completed. During Jitterbug's spay and dental surgery, a growth was also removed at that time that has been determined to be a spindle cell tumor. The mass was totally excised and clean margins were reported. Her report was sent to an oncologist, Dr. Lori of VCA Animal Diagnostic Clinic. The determination is that Jitterbug should be closely watched for any recurring growths. It is not known at this time if Jitterbug is small animal or cat tolerant. It is time for this girl to find her forever home!
