ORIGINAL STORY (March 13, 2013):
Last year I noticed a stray dog by our home. For weeks I tried to catch her but she was afraid of me. I decided to gain her trust by feeding her every day. I later learned that I was not the only one. I met two great ladies by the name of Claudia and Sherri who had also been feeding her as well but were unable to rescue her.
Day 1: Walk Through
Day 1: Gaining Her Trust
6 Weeks later
Sandy touched our hearts. She was a dream dog. We expected to look for a foster once we got an idea of how much our vet bills would cost. Turns out after some blood work that Sandy was remarkably healthy. I had received several donations so we decided to keep fostering her until we found a good permanent home for her. Well, that was the plan. After several weeks of obedience training, socialization, counter conditioning, and lots of love and good nutrition Priscilla and I would tear up at the thought of letting her to go another home. We decided Sandy was our new pack member. She gets along great with our dogs and she has been a dream come true for us. She appears to appreciate us and loves her life now. I couldn’t be happier to give her a 2nd chance. We love her so much.
