Background:

I came in as a stray to a very overcrowded, high-kill shelter in Tennessee, where I was going to be put to sleep because I had heartworms. This was a totally curable illness, not contagious, but sometimes in these shelters it’s “one strike and you’re out.” Lucky for me, they said I was just too special and one of their trainers took me under her wing so I could get treatment (I’m all better now!), and then helped get me into a rockin’ CDR foster home!

Background:

Thank goodness, CDR rescued me from a high-kill shelter in KY, where I was turned in with 5 other dogs when our owners couldn’t take care of us or didn’t want us anymore.   The staff at the shelter liked me so much because I was so sweet and adorable, but their hearts also broke for me because I was so scared.  Whatever my circumstances were before coming to the shelter, it was clear to everyone that I had not had the luck of kind and loving relationships with people.  I seemed to expect bad or scary things to happen whenever someone came near, and I …

I kept getting these terrible skin and ear infections though, and after 2 years of her veterinarians being unable to get me well, she ran out of money for my care. I …

Background

I hail from Vestal, NY where I was adopted from the Humane Society into a wonderful family in 2011 when I was 1 year old. I was so grateful to them and when I met my doggy brother, a Lab, we ran and ran, it was so much fun! They had 4 cats and I was great with them all too! I wasn’t OK with strangers and other dogs, though–they made me very nervous. Once I got to know people, I felt comfortable around them. I went to doggie school and worked …
