Arrival Story:
Abby was the saddest looking dog at the Humane Society kennel. No one wanted her, she stayed curled up in a ball in the back corner of her kennel and wouldn't move for anything. She wouldn't eat. She was just skin and bones. I wanted another dog, but my mother said she wouldn't leave without Abby. So, we took her home with us. Abby got to our house found a corner to hide in and curled up. No matter what we tried she wouldn't move at all. She wouldn't eat or drink. We had to pick her up and carry her outside to get her to go to the bathroom and then we had to carry her back inside. We went to sleep that night totally discouraged thinking that there was no hope for Abby. The next morning we woke up to Abby's good morning bark and we knew there was hope. We learned that day that poor Abby didn't even know what to do when a food bowl was placed in front of her. We ended up spoon feeding and hand feeding her for several days until she got the hang of it. After putting on some weight she was a beautiful dog. We also learned that Abby had tons of MAJOR issues. She was very aggressive towards anyone but us and other dogs for starters. After some great professional training Abby turned around and became the sweetest, most loving dog we could have ever wished for. We wouldn't have traded her for anything! Sometimes it pays to pick the ugly duckling.

Abby had a very rough start and was not a happy dog when she first came to us, but after a lot of love, some good old fashioned training and her finally realizing no one was going to hurt her again, she became the most loving, sweet, friendliest dog. Abby was a true companion, she loved to go anywhere and everywhere with her family. Abby was also a big hero, a few months before she got sick, someone broke into our house when my 90 year old hearing impaired grandmother was home alone, Abby barked and barked and ran to to my grandmother until she got up and saw that there was a stranger in the house! No dog was more loved than Abby was and still is. Our hearts broke when we had to accept that Abby would be better off going to heaven instead of suffering anymore. We miss you Abbylou!

Forums Motto:
So very loved and missed terribly!
