Here’s a miracle girl who needs a foster home!

February 21, 2011

This little girl is an example of a dog who has come a long way and now she desperately needs a foster home! This little girl is named “Chewy” (and yes, we will definitely change that name). As you can see she’s a pretty little Pitty girl… but she didn’t always look this good…

So now, lets take a look at her past. Chewy came to the Columbia County shelter with a litter of puppies. She was from a terrible, neglectful situation. The staff at the shelter took one look at this sweet, tragic little girl and knew they had to help her. And so they did. Chewy had both Demodex (non-infectious mange) AND ring worm (an infectious fungus)! She had almost no hair…

Still, this stoic little angel remained happy and earnest while they treated her with special shampoo, and medications, and injections…Here’s a picture from a week after they got her.

The picture at the beginning of this post was taken a mere 45 days after Chewy came to the shelter in such terrible condition. The rest of the story is the typical story we hear every day about Pit bulls. There are too many of them, and because of the community stigma, there are not enough people willing to give them a chance. This little girl needs a foster home and of course, a new, adoptive home, where she can be loved and cared for the way she should have been to begin with!

Please help us find a great home for a great girl.

Thank you!

Just something sweet…

My kitty Jezebel likes to wrap herself up in a sheer curtain. She drags the curtain up on the bed with her every day and takes a nap while wrapped in the sheer fabric. It’s just soooo cute, I had to share.

Phoenix goes for a walk…


Okay, it isn’t really a walk, per se, but we pull Phoenix along and keep encouraging him while he has the brakes on and drags his feet the whole way. We really don’t get very far before it wears the humans out, but on the way back he will actually walk a few steps on his own.

Claudia bought Phoenix a Thundershirt, which is something like a Tellington Touch “wrap”, intended to be calming to anxious or fearful animals. He wears the Thundershirt and each day we work with him to build his confidence. This is still one very scared dog, but he is gaining weight (he’s now up to 50lbs from 27lbs!) and his coat is finally a soft white and gold.

It’s such a drag…  (I couldn’t resist) ; 0 )
