Leave a bone for Dottie

Having a family!!!! Being loved and valued! (She idolizes her big brother and sister)
Dottie seems to love everything!! :o)
Fish, beef, milk, eggs, all wholesome weight gain foods!
Dottie LOVES to patrol the back yard with her sister Hannah!
My husband and I already had two rescued Saints. I am "not allowed" to look at petfinder.com, but I did it anyway. I saw this poor girl looking just terrible at only 76 pounds in a shelter nearby. We knew what we had to do.
My husband picked her up the next morning. We found out that the shelter had just lost it's vet. Dottie wasn't going to make it there. She clearly just had puppies (not a good look on a skin and bones gal!) and was emaciated (much thinner than Hannah had been).
Our other two accepted her right away (much to our surprise-we thought Hannah-particularly-might object, but they must have known she needed us). We have had her for some time now (we picked her up in April 06) and her weight gain is terrific. All three dogs are still getting along great (Dottie also does just great with the cats-much like her siblings), and we will never let her go!!!!! She is very sweet and gentle.
Despite being the smallest dog we have, she has the strongest tail. She wags her whole body and seems to actually smile. She is very appreciative, and we appreciate her right back!!!! We are very lucky to have found her! She ADORES Lucas (constantly gives him kisses) and loves to follow Hannah around. She seems to be so happy here!
THE FRIENDS OF CATS AND DOGS FOUNDATION in Birmingham, Alabama helped us with her vet care. We foster cats with them. We thought Dottie might be a foster but could never give her up!
Check out the site. They have a lot of great rescue animals looking for homes. (Dottie BEGS you to spay and neuter your pets! She also wants you to consider adopting rather than buying! Give a rescue a chance!)
