I couldn’t forget to post some of the other seniors that live at the rescue. Some are in our home and others in the kennel.
Rose came to us in the winter of 2007—Chuck found her in the hay bales one day with 2 bullets in her. The weather was extremely cold that day, with a wind chill of 30 degrees below zero. She was starving, in pain, some would of believed a lost cause. But, he picked her up and brought her to our little heated shed and started giving her the medical treatment and love she needed. We never placed her for adoption, but she is our senior gal and a miracle,”
Peaches has another story—being a dog classified in the “Pit Family”–she remains at 12 Hills Dog Rescue.
She came to us starving and full of mange. She loves people and kids and has gotten heavier over the past year, because she spends a most of her time laying on her dog bed in her kennel. When she comes out for exercise, she runs a around a little, but goes back and sets down and just looks at us. I think she is lonesome and depressed.
She has waited so long for a family, but no one wants a “Pit”, or if they do, the city ordinance bans them. She would be a great dog for a family without other dogs. Peaches loves puppies and dogs that don’t threaten her, but she is afraid that she will be challenged. When that happens—she has to fight back. That is just what her breed does, most of the time.
So, please say a little prayer for Peaches, that she finds a family, or a great volunteer, that will come and visit weekly for “Peachy Time!”
