Arrival Story: Update 10/14/12: Anna was adopted and went home with her forever family this afternoon! Bye sweet girl - you're in good hands and will never be mistreated or left to fend for yourself ever again!! Anna came from rural Kentucky into foster care with Rogers' Rescues on 9/8/12. Her story from the shelter's rescue group: "This sweet girl ran away from an abusive home to have her puppies at a nice lady's house. The nice lady got in touch with us because she didn't want this little family going to the pound. Momma was smart there! However, she made a mistake when she started hiding her babies under a church. Some real Christian-like people had the pups sent away to the pound. (Where they all got adopted -- I'm sure we'll see their offspring next year.) Momma was taken back to the abusive home, but she kept running away to the nice lady. The abuser gave up, and the nice lady has asked us to find a home for Momma. She is really really affectionate and obviously intelligent." Anna had been hanging out with the nice lady and has come north to find a forever home where she'll be loved, fed, and not left to roam again.
Bio: Anna has been in foster care for 3 weeks now and her personality has really blossomed. She's extremely sweet and a great snuggler and seeks out human affection. She's playful with the other dogs and with toys and often acts like a puppy herself with her joyful demeanor. She's crate trained and spends her time snoozing in there during the day when we're not home but has free reign of the house at night without any "accidents". She's probably never lived in a house before but she's learned that it's a warm safe place and now eagerly comes inside when called (most of the time - she is a Pyr afterall!) She's still a little spooked by certain rooms and is most comfortable in our family room and chooses to spend most of her time in there on the dog bed or playing with the toys or chew bones. She's putting on weight, has had a bath and her coat is growing back in nicely after the "post puppy" drop, and she's going to be a stunning girl in a couple months. Wish we could keep her but we're at maximum capacity so it's time for Anna to find her forever family that will love and spoil her like she deserves.
