Arrival Story: coco "fishbait" carmichael was saved after craig carmichael jumped into the cotee river one saturday night to save her. craig passed away on sunday. coco was lost, frightened, and chased by well meaning rescuers for a week. She showed up back at the house where she was saved on the day of his memorial. she sat on the dock away from the crowd just looking at the water. he lovingly named her 'fishbait'.
we were able to get her on a leash and brought her home. she was in bad shape, several infected teeth, a plugged ear, and infected uterus. raising money among our friends we got her the vet care she desperately needed. she is doing so much better now. she now has over 2700 fans on her facebook page. we want to raise money for a local dog rescue facility dedicated to saving dogs from kill shelters. we hope to learn more about the breed here and look forward to chatting with everyone.
