Simona’s estimated at 2-4 years young, and has been definitively identified as a 100% purebred “Rescue”, weighing a bit under 50 pounds! Back in 2014 She was dumped in a field, left to fend for herself, starve or die of disease. Eventually she found her way into a neighborhood where several kind souls took pity on her. Each night she would go back for a daily meal - but would never allow anyone to touch her.
During the cold days of this last winter her need for food got the best of her, and Simona was finally lured into a crate by irresistible treats. Though terrified at first, she relaxed and soon was enjoying the affection offered to her.
She adapted to the domestic life, and began adding weight quickly… VERY quickly! Then, on March 7th (2015) Simona gave birth to six wonderful little puppies! She was a wonderful Momma, and 5 of those puppies are now in their new homes (the last pup, “Virginia”, is still seeking her home, and is also available through DFWRM.)
Now it’s Simona’s turn to find a home where she can receive the affection she offers in such abundance! She’s up to date on vaccinations, on HW preventative, spayed, and 100% ready. She loves other dogs, and enjoys gentle people of all ages. Simona’s not yet had the opportunity to meet cats, so we can’t speak with certainty to her “cattitude”, but we suspect she’ll be just gently curious! I
