Remember the horrible article in the Free Press this summer about the beagles and cocker spaniels rescued from the puppy mill in Woodlands (there is no other word for it because this guy was NOT a breeder)? And remember how the wonderful people at Diamond Edge Grooming fixed up countless dogs on their own time and money? Well Sadie was one of those dogs and Brenda at It's Raining Cats and Dogs adopted her.
Sadie was deemed un-adoptable due, no doubt, to her age and physical condition. She is about 5 or 6 years old and was only used for breeding mass numbers of litters (they think 10) judging by the condition of her poor little body. She had untreated glaucoma which was treated by removing her eye after her rescue. She looks like she is about 10 lbs too skinny (maybe less - I'm such a bad judge of weight) and her hair is still growing back around her neck where she was likely restrained in her little cage. GRRRR... people like the Woodlands guy make me so mad. Oh - and how can I forget, she was de-barked. I will not go into the description on how that happens but you can ask Brenda when you go down to visit. It's not nice at all.
But now she is well fed, loved, and free to roam. Way to go Brenda for taking on sweet little Sadie. Sadie is joining the other two store dogs Jamie,
I think they are starting to warm up to their new sister.
Go check out Sadie at It's Raining Cats and Dogs new location at B-620 Academy Road, near Keneston. And while your at it, pick up some packaged or BULK (only place in town with bulk) Lucky Dog Biscuits.
And give Sadie a big scratch behind her velvety long ears. She's already looking so much better than when she first arrived at the store.
Thanks Brenda for showing that "un-adoptables" are most definitely adoptable.
