Essie is a red female estimated to be about 9 years old. Essie's DNA results have her as a Greyhound, Borzoi, Wolfhound, American Staffordshire Terrier mix. She is a big girl at almost 90 lbs! Essie was surrendered to us from West Texas by someone who kept Essie and Marcie for several years after their original owner passed away. We think she is Marcie's mother. Essie arrived with a large lump on her rear hip. It was removed and found to be cancerous. The tumor was too close to delicate organs to get clean margins, and has returned aggressively. She will be kept comfortable in her foster home.

Essie has not yet been tested with cats or other small animals.
