Arrival Story: I was looking for a dog to rescue and foster. The Animal Control person told me about this girl. Shewas given to the Humane Society, and they gave her back to Animal Control because she had to many health issues. She was scheduled for PTD in 2 days. I went down to see her and when I got there about 4 employees greeted me. The place was abuzz about my arrival, and I had the distinct feeling that this puppy meant a lot to the staff at Animal Control. The minute I saw her I knew why. This little girl deserved the second chance I could give her...
Update:...Hope was released today in my care I took Her to the Vet and discovered She was a girl about 5 Mos. old (Animal Control told me she was a he)....severely malnourished and bloated with worms....Dr. said she needed to be hospitalized for care if we wanted to get her on the right track!...Starting with IV fluids cause she is extremely dehydrated too!...We named her Hope.
Bio: Hope has really bad skin problems and her ribs are very noticeable ..when she was found on the street he had no energy to even get up. A few days of fluids and food and she is an energetic lovable puppy looking anywhere she can for some affection...She has some major deformity in her legs more so in her hind legs...but she has so much personality and charisma it comes out her smile and into your hart.
Update: Hope weighed in at 11.4 LBS. skin problems from malnourishment ...no mange!.....dehydration and worms....Vet said she will need lots of care and hope to get her on the right track.
Mom said something about the dog park first. I have been in so much pain with my arthritis and my skin allergies are out of control. I cant stop scratching and i cry all night. Mom said that i would go to the bridge when i was no longer happy but i am still very much Happy Hopey Jo the clown. Mom said that she was wrong I will never be unhappy. I guess i dont understand but mom said I just dont know any better I have lived with pain my whole life. So why go to the bridge now? Mom said because all the pain killers and steroids are just not helping me any more and as my mom some times she has to make tough choices for me. Mom said at the bridge i dont have to take my pills any more and i can run pain free now i dont know what pain free is but mom loves me very much and she will make sure i dont suffer any more. Mom is leaking and cant type for me any more right now so for now I will say see ya at the bridge.
A CAR RIDE? Awesome! Im game for any time i can go go go! we traveled from Minnesota through north dakota Montana down to Yellowstone park over to Idaho and back through Wyoming and south Dakota in 7 days. Man was it fun i was such a good girl and only needed my muzzle once at my aunts house in Idaho i didnt really dig her husband but soon got over it. wow a dogs dream come true a car ride with my whole pack and the stops were crazy all the cool smells and neat places we went to i was in dog heaven. and after 7 days in the car on the road grandpaw asked me if i wanted to go for a ride lol he thought i would be sick of the car silly grandpaw :P hell yes i want to go again!
