I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Our girl Lacey, was shot twice, while running away. We don't know who, we don't know why, we don't understand but what we do know is that our rescue is going to do everything possible to make sure she finds the best home for her. In May of 2014 she was taken out of the shelter by a single person in Dallas. She was put into a foster home that was not well suited for either Lacey or the family. She had some dog aggression issues that were not known until she was there. Instead of being taken to training or socialization, that rescue dropped her off in boarding and never did another thing for her for 14 months! She was left to wither away and die. She was abandoned there with nothing.
That rescue didn't visit her, have volunteers go walk her, or take her to adoption events, She just left her there. We found out Lacey was still in boarding and told the awesome boarding facility owner that we would take her and get her rehabilitated and into a great home. On the first Saturday that was to be her freedom from boarding, she had a great day. She swam in a doggie pool, layed out in the sun, and ran to fetch toys in a big backyard. She was going to have a doggie play date weekend until she went to her trainer on that following Monday. Monday never came for Lacey. She went out for her evening potty break and was shot twice in the country backyard she was out in. She has gone through so much in her short life. We don't know how much abuse she has really suffered at the hands of humans but she sure still loves them so so much. The vet's prognosis for her was very grim and we thought most definitely we would have to put her down but Lacey showed us what the will to live looks like and she got up and walked! This girl's courageous journey is not over. She will need to have her right front leg amputated and will forever be a tripod but the happiest and cutest tripod ever. She will also always have 2 bullets in her body. Taking them out would be life threatening. She is also partially blind in her left eye and her left eardrum has been completely done in so she can no longer hear in that ear. In saying all of this, you would never know it. She is happy, healthy for the most part and just wants to be loved. She will be looking for her forever very soon and wants you to know that being disabled will not slow her down much. We will be providing rehab after her surgery to get her left leg and hind end strong enough for the job at hand and she will also be getting some more socialization training to figure out if she actually has dog aggression or is just completely fearful. She will be one of the best dogs ever and when she finds her forever home, we would like to document it as we have people all over the US watching her story and praying for her. We would of course, love it if Lacey could be an only dog forever because she is just that special!
Do you think you have what it takes to be Lacey's forever? If so, please contact us here and we will send you an application.
Do not consider Lacey as handicapped, just very, very special. She is our rescue hero and has really shown us what love, courage and tenacity are all about.
