Pet's Story or Bio
I was this sweet girl’s foster mother during May and June of this year. She came to Appalachian Great Pyrenees Rescue from a horrific hoarding situation along with her tiny pups. Once her pups were weaned, she needed to be spayed, heartworm tested, and giardia treated. She did not want to eat and was very thin. Although she was just two years old, her canine teeth were chewed down - most likely from being in a crate for long periods of time. She was terrified of everything and everyone. Although I have had many dogs in my life, this dog taught me how much effort and money is needed to bring a dog to an “adoptable” status. And this story is repeated over and over again as more and more dogs come to rescue with nowhere else to turn. Please donate as much as you possibly can - every precious dog brought into this organization receives everything possible to give them a better life. And Tina now has her own real family and is living in the witness protection under a new name. This dog was worth every bit of effort I put into her! This photo was taken before I took her back to Richmond and she was adopted 3 days later!!
