She was found wandering on a rural farm road, pregnant and hungry, and ended up in a nearby high kill shelter. My soft hearted daughter just couldn't stand it, and made a deal with a friend's rescue to bail her out even though the rescue had no one who could take her in right then. So Paige stepped up and offered to keep her till she had her puppies, by which time space would be available with one of the rescue's regular fosters. She was very fearful to start out, growled at everyone and everything, wouldn't let anyone touch her, was just terrified. She seemed particularly hateful towards males, though just big males...she wasn't as bad with sweet little River, who just wanted to love on her. Didn't take her long though to figure out that she'd landed in the equivalent of Dog Paradise....Soft bed, excellent food, stellar care (Paige is a retired, experienced Vet Tech) and an entire family who just wanted to love on her and give her treats and attention. When presented with a little kindness she has turned into the sweetest and most loving little lady ever, just wants to be in a lap, any lap though she's bonded pretty closely with Paige. Her entire back end wags she's so happy right now! Paige thinks she's about a week away from delivery. Meet Mama Dog. Getting lots of love, making up for lost time.
