Last night I was driving home with my roommate and I saw a pup sitting on the corner of a busy intersection. It’s been really cold these past few days so I decided to see if I could grab her. She bolted a few times but I eventually just sat on the ground and didn’t look at her and eventually she slid along her belly right into my lap. I scooped her up and put her in the car and took her home. I’m really glad I did because it’s now snowing super hard here!
She’s likely going into heat because she’s been making my two males fiesty, even though they are neutered. She ended up playing well with them though, but doesn’t understand fetch or anything. She was so so dirty with little rough spots on her paws so I gave her a bath. She never tried to hop out of the tub and seemed to like being semi-clean. She flinches every time you move to fast towards her. I fear she may be a victim of abuse, so I am scared to take her to the shelter in case she is ruled unadoptable. I will be paying for all of the things necessary to get her spayed, up to date on shops, and waive her adoption fee if possible.
This is a long shot but if someone wants her, please take her. She’s a good girl and I’m willing to travel, within reason. Right now I have no one who could take her, and it breaks my heart. I am sure she will have to be held for a 48 claiming fee, but wherever she came from I don’t want her to go back. It took me a solid two hours just to get her tail to start wagging.
After some food and water and soft pets, she really began to shine. I will be incredibly sad to part with her, but she’s a good girl.
(She ended up spending the night with my good friend so my dogs would leave her alone.)
