Buffy has had a very hard life. Just a bit over a year old, herself, she gave birth to the Oodles of Doodles puppies that we still have two boys available. This is what Buffy's VA Foster mom said about her:
Those eyes are what melted my heart that day at the Shelter. She was lying there with her new puppies, and those big brown eyes just burned a hole in my heart. I stopped at her pen and didn't get the dog that I was supposed to get, much to Carla's distress that day. I know she wanted to kill me when Teresa told her that I was bringing home a momma with puppies instead and that the momma didn't look to be in good health. Dr. Tim took care of the health issues, and here she is.
Did you see the three new pics, above? I am waiting to upload a video now. She is still a bit shy but coming around. She was really scared last night and it took about an hour before she would come out of the crate but it may have had more to do with the pack all trying to sniff her. She explored the yard a bit this morning which you will see in the video and so far, no-one has fallen in the pool. So, we're off to a good start. You didn't tell me how pretty she is! A few of the drivers commented on how gorgeous she is. Those eyes!!! More to come.....
How's my girl this morning?
Oh, Lynne...I so wanted to keep her, but had I done so, I would have been depriving her of the individual attention that she deserves so much. Here, with all of my dogs and fosters coupled with my poor health, she would have only had bits and pieces of attention that she deserves compared to a family where she would be the center of attention. She was only happy here because she had never experienced anything more which would not be fair to her in the long run. I have visions of Buffy being adopted by a nice, quiet family, older couple or individual, who has plenty of time to dote on her, in hopes of making up for the time she spent kicked to the side of the road, totally on her own, alone, cold and hungry. And I feel more than confident that you will find this special person for my special girl.
Gail, now you have me crying. Why didn't you keep her? Is my first thought. I will love and cherish her as much as you have, is my second thought. I have a puppy mill girl here, who had a similar past. When she first came she was so afraid that she went under a shelf in my kitchen and shook uncontrollably for hours. She gradually poked her head out, would take bites of food from my hand and would not let me touch her for almost a month. Gradually, we worked through her fears and she has now been with me 5 years and is my perfect princess. Buffy will be treated with the same love and patience and I will find her the perfect home, I promise you.
My little girl was so afraid this morning having to leave me and board the transport that was heading to New Jersey where there was hope of a better life after two years of struggling to rear babies and find food. Buffy has never had a home or a family. She has always lived on the streets or beside of the road, never knowing what it was like to have kind words, a pat on the head, a warm bed or a bowl of food. Despite her desolate life previously, she came to love me and trust me in no way that any other dog has ever loved me before. When I came into the room, love would immediately radiate from those big brown eyes and her whole body would wag continuously with her little head down in a semblance of near worship. In the beginning, it was so frightening to her to just be petted that she would just squinch her eyes closed and flatten completely out, tail wagging furiously telling me that in the past, a human approach was generally not pleasant and for the most part abusive. I was so sad and cried uncontrollably when I looked at her little overstuffed chair. This was the chair that she slept under in the beginning but eventually slept on, once she learned that she was loved dearly and would never be hit, kicked, beaten or go hungry again. Please join me in saying prayers that this little girl will find a home and family who will love her as much as she will love them - a family who will continue to help her erase those first two years.
