Meet Hope, who was named that because we were her last hope. She was used as a breeder dog in deplorable conditions, then dumped at a high kill shelter when she was of no use.
With heartworms, severe yeast infection, extremely under weight, she was left to die. She was almost adopted until they found out she was heartworm positive, and that and everything else caused them to not adopt her. Some very kind people helped Hope get to us.
She is very sweet and gentle with people, but does not seem like her feet touched. Other than that she is fine. Hope should probably be an only dog, as she is not friendly towards her foster brothers and sisters. She seems to like Vader, but so far he is the only one.
After all the abuse and having the life bred out of her, this poor girl deserves much better. Her yeast is clearing up nicely with medicated baths, and she has a beautiful sable coat. We are doing the slow kill heartworm treatment on her and she is doing very well. The regular treatment can be done if the adopter prefers. We are unsure of her age, she could be 5 or she might be older. It is hard to say when they have multiple litters and literally takes the life out of them and ages them.
We can see why she would be valuable as a breeder dog, and probably mothered many beautiful pups before she was dumped. She is becoming a beautiful dog again with good food, medicated baths, and a healthy diet.
If you would like to give Hope a second chance and a new wonderful life, please fill out an app. She is waiting for the right home that will give her lots of love that she so deserves.
