Every animal who passes thru our doors here, leaves their mark on my life...
Angels among us..
I have said it before and I will say it again, I learn so much from the animals, daily, monthly, yearly..
They have taught me to be a better person. One of forgiveness and learning to be appreciative for kindness, goodness and living in the moment.
No matter how badly these animals have been treated, neglected or abused, they have come around and shown us such great love, it is so amazing...
If you have never had a rescued dog, all it will take is one to come into your life and you will be forever changed...
Here are some of the new faces here:
"Allie" is a darling female terrier mix. Approximately 2-3 years of age about 25 pounds. She was shot thru her back leg.
The blast shattered her leg and showered pellets all over the back side of her body. I almost posted the pictures of her shaved when we first took her in, but I know many of you are very sensitive to the photos, that you don't need to see them.
You get the picture, just by me writing about it.
We will focus on the good.. She is healing and is getting around great.
Still unsure if we can save the leg, but time will tell.
She is currently being fostered by my friend Chris, who is also a vet tech. So she is getting great care:)
Our next cutie is: "Clyde" He is a male Shih Tzu, approximately 2-3 years of age. He came in in pretty sad shape.
Worms, fleas, skin infections, dirty, matted and just not feeling too good in general.
Super loving, very well behaved, good with other dogs and housebroken, he is recovered very well..
Isn't it amazing what a shower and shave does:)
This is Mister "Moo". My friend's son, named him, said he looked like a little cow:)
"Moo" is a male terrier mix. Approximately 3-5 years of age. Recovering from mange and skin infections he is doing well and should be ready for adoption in about a month. Super attentive to your every move and lovingly co-dependent, he just wants a person to call his own.
Does o.k. with other dogs, ideal situation would be an only dog home.
"Wilma" is a tiny female, Chihuahua. Approximately 3-5 years of age. She came in malnourished, with numerous scars and bite wounds, she is recovering and doing well. Shy and nervous, she is a sweet girl. Just had a dental and will be ready for adoption in a few weeks.
"Yogee" is a female Peke Mix. Approximately 10 weeks old.
Currently at my vets office, being treated, she will be available for adoption in about 3 weeks.
"JoVee" is a female Rat Terrier or Jack mix. Tiny little girl, approximately 10 weeks old. Busy, loving and doing very well with the potty training.
This is one of six Lab mix puppies we took in today, kinda looks like a Shar pei lab:)
Time to get some sleep, will post more later this week...
You are truly one of the most wonderful people on this earth. It was so nice to hear from you the other day. I'd love to meet up sometime if you're in Missouri.
In the meantime, can you please email me when you get a chance (in all your free time, LOL). I have a fundraising/donation idea I'd like to run by you, but I couldn't find your email address anywhere. Thanks! : ) farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com
I wish I had a bigger house - I'd take Clyde, Wilma and Yogi! xoxo
Thank you for this lovely, heartfelt post (as always). I love you and what you do for these amazing four-leggeds. My heart is so full right now... reading this and knowing all your rescues have a second chance. It makes me so happy. I've said it before, I will ONLY rescue again for as long as I live. My rescue guy is the most special dog and more than I could have ever dreamed of.
Happy holidays to you and ALL of yours,
