Lovely pup Faith lives up to her name, as she has not only been dumped in a kill shelter twice but has also been let down by rescues and abandoned twice. Without the help of loving, understanding people, Faith had no hope of making it to the forever home she has waited for, for over two years.
Poor Faith has been let down by rescues more than once. Two years ago Faith was dumped in Downey high kill shelter by her previous owner. She was covered in bite wounds. She was possibly used as bait for fighting dogs. She was rescued in May 2013 but was just dumped and left for several months in a boarding kennel and received no help during all that time for her issues. Faith is dog reactive and dog defensive, after her past ordeals. A new rescue stepped in and contacted a wonderful rescue/animal advocate who is a trainer and trains rescue dogs.
After she had received her training & socialization, Faith's rescue then adopted her out, but she was cruelly dumped back into the shelter system! Thankfully the rescue/animal advocate who had trained Faith, found her in the shelter and rescued her as her previous rescue made no steps to re-rescue her, even after knowing Faith was back in the shelter system.
Faith loves people and is very affectionate and trusting, amazingly. Faith is now under the care of her animal advocate/trainer. Boarding fees are building and her training and socialization are progressing well. We need to set Faith up for success and give us time to find her either a wonderful only-dog foster home or an equally suitable loving & understanding forever home for such a sweet pup.
Please consider adopting, fostering, or being a sponsor for lovely Faith. Dogs like Faith cannot be saved without your help. Faith is around 3-4 years old, spayed, vaccinated, and healthy. Thank you for any help you can provide for Faith.
