I WISH SHE COULD TELL US

A new girl came in to our lives this week. Meet Chloe. My wife Lizzie has the biggest heart in the world. She follows the Golden Retriever Rescue site and came across an older female that no one seemed to want. We were told that this sweet girl was found by animal control and that judging by her matted coat they estimated that she had been on her own for more than a month. She was held at the pound for 29 days and not claimed. One day before her scheduled demise, The Golden Retriever Rescue was notified and they came to get her. The rescue organization put her in a foster home, cleaned her up, took her to a vet and put her up for adoption. It seems that placing an older, special needs animal is difficult as after 2 months no one came forward to offer her a home. It is estimated that she is about eight years old. Her teeth are broken and worn. Her hips and rear legs are weak and unsteady. But it's very obvious that she was someones very special companion. She loves car rides and wants nothing more than to be next to you. Don't you wish our dogs could talk. We wish she could tell us whats happened to her and how she came to be alone. Oh well, thats not possible and we can't do anything about yesterday but we can make sure she lives the rest of her life in a loving home, is protected, cared for and a part of the family.

A Lo Bank Swamp Collie!!! I thought HSUS was the voice of animals everywhere, right? Every good bird dog kennel needs some diversity.. just ask Bonnie- my dad's resident Sheltie.
