Update October 2012: April is doing great and is ready for a home of her own! She knows all of her basic commands at this point. She is a great dog with an affectionate personality.
April was reported to us eating roadkill on a local state highway because she was starving. Then 1 day a very nice man stopped and observed her and noticed she was limping badly. A group of humans finally rescued her and then found out she had a litter of pups she was nursing. We rescued everyone and the next day they all went to be checked out. Mom did NOT have a broken leg but she had a very bad bruise and a serious laceration on her leg. April turned out to be a fantastic Mom and is very loving and caring. All of her puppies are now weaned and she is finally getting her girlish figure back. Check out her babies, Jennie, Nick, Caitlin, Edd, & Casey. (Update: All pups were adopted!)
