Hi everyone! I sure do hope you had a wonderful weekend filled with activity and lots of noms!
No worries, Amelia is still here, just didn't want to take part in the picture taking.
I had a very interesting weekend! We went and added another foster pooch to our pack! However, she doesn’t have a name yet. The momma and dad have narrowed it down to 5 names, but we need your help deciding! Before I tell you the names, let me tell you a bit about our new girl –referred to as momma below.
Our new lady
It all started one cold and blistery day in Tennessee around Christmas time. A man showed up at our rescue volunteer/foster’s house with 3 adorable pitty puppies. He asked her to take them in because the others had frozen to death. Of course, Miss Tam asked about the momma –to which he replied that she was fine. Miss Tam’s hubby, Jay, kept trying to find the place the man lived so he could make sure the momma was okay. He finally found the man’s property and along with the momma, there were 3 other pitties. All chained up with no shelter, no food and no water. It was below 15 degrees and Tennessee had received 4 inches of snow. Mr. Jay asked the man to please surrender the dogs. He agreed to let one of the males go, so Mr. Jay took him home. He posted videos of the sweet pitties that were left there and the momma said that we would take in another foster if it meant he could save these dogs. After a restless night, Mr. Jay went back and begged the man to surrender the other 3. He finally agreed and Mr. Jay took momma, her daughter and another male home.
Momma went to the vet and had a full work up. Miss Tam said she was a real sweetheart. She was too thin to be fixed, but knowing Miss Tam and Mr. Jay had their hands full with their numerous rescue dogs and puppies, the momma said “Send her up and we’ll get her nice and fat!” So, up she came!
Momma is very thin. She has frost bite on both of her ears and the tip of her nose. There are BB pellets under her skin and her neck is healing from an embedded chain. We're glad to have an extra fleece lined Siruis Republic collar to help keep her neck comfortable. But, boy… is she happy. She is the sweetest, most loving girl. She came to New York on Saturday and spent the morning with the momma and Amelia at the adoption clinic. She has such a calm manner about her, do you believe she helped Amelia relax at the adoption clinic? Amelia usually gets very anxious, she whines and snips with other dogs sometimes… the complete opposite of her loving nature at home. But, with the momma holding both girls… Amelia just sat there nicely, and would even lie down here and there.
To say we’re smitten with our new girl would be an understatement. We can’t wait to pack some weight on her and watch her grow.
So, won’t you help us with a name? Here are the options, please leave a comment with your favorite!
