After removal of about 40 or so ticks, matts of burrs, sticks, and more, a bit of clipping around her eyes and mouth, one very traumatic bath, application of advantage….she took to my friend Robin, snuggled right up to her and fell asleep.
She is sleeping a lot, I am hoping because she is safe, no longer out in the wild in fight or flight, afraid of everything.
I never once thought of what I would do with her if I was fortunate enough to catch her, I was just focused on rescuing her. I have shed many tears of joy, gratitude for the safety of this little girl.
This little dog, whose eyes still tell a very sad story, is very passive, sweet, and cuddly.
