Ok.. I will start...lol.
I have a few fosters here,
one is little CopperTop.
CopperTop was surrendered in November ..but unfortnutaly had to go back to her "home" and then re surrendered on Dec.31st!
Just after we all figured we lost her forever.
CopperTops story is ,
she was born June 24 2004. And according to neighbors , was chained outside on a choke chain sometime in July
The neighbors helped in feeding of her and tried the first time to get her into rescue, but lacking the proper signatures, and even after the owners had stated they were going to shoot her, we had to give her back when they threatened to call the police and animal control... *UGH*
And too they wanted her and a dog house.. (right).
Well we figured that Animal Control WAS aware of what was going on and now was going to keep an eye on the dog , and ask the people if they had licensed her and had proof of rabies, etc.. which might lead them to resurrendering the dog.
But the case was shuffled off...and so were our hopes of gaining the lil sad dog back.
We sent her back, (minus dog house) with a new collar and the pleading to not put a choke back on her (it was already embedded in her fur, her neck would of been next).
And as you guessed.. the did bring her inside..but in a house full of 4 young kids and a dog that really was afraid of the world I think they realized that their hands were more than full, and called and said "come pick her up or we are bringing her into the pound" ,
CopperTop is said to be a pitty mix and the pound would of put her down that day.
So............... I went and scooped her up from a not so nice looking enviroment.. ok it was awful.
CopperTop has some issues I am working thru.. but she has come around ALOT and is doing extremly well for all she has been through.
Her name was not CopperTop but Precious.. which we felt needed to go (especially since the first time I met her she was a raging growling shell of the dog she would become.. calling THAT "precious" was just funny)
But here she is!!! awwww what a face.. huh!
she is tiny at about 34 pounds, is she a pitty mix? Probably, but looks more like a Besjenji with a voice..hahaha.
She is doing great on her potty training (finally) and her fears, she no longer meets strangers growling and lunging..but with a wagging tail and curious face!
She still has a way to go.. but I think she is overcoming alot and have high hopes that we can get her rehomed pretty soon!
