“Our veterinarian confirmed that the muscle contractions are not physically painful for her,” Lee told The Dodo. “Her myoclonus has never led to any seizures, and it also doesn’t slow her down or affect her ability to be a playful companion. She loves going on walks, meeting other pups and is sweeter than donuts to everyone she meets!”
When Dorothy first got to her foster home in Queens, New York, it was a lot for the nervous pup to take in. Having grown up on the farm inside a cage, she was not used to any of the typical sights and sounds that a dog would experience growing up in a traditional home — let alone in New York City. While it took a bit of time, Lee is proud to see Dorothy come out of her shell a bit more each day to try new things.
