(Written by Beauty’s foster….)
Last month, my dear friend, Elizabeth, passed away leaving her dog, BEAUTY, without a person. Her children, who live out of town have asked me to help Beauty find a new home. Beauty is a 6 year old female pitbull. Two years ago, Elizabeth adopted her from the Everman Animal Shelter, when she was on 'death row', and (it turns out) on death's door.
Elizabeth spent the first few days, nursing Beauty back to health, with spoon fed chicken broth and just enough sugar water, to keep her going. Beauty had a sad history, of having been used for breeding and possibly fighting. Her ears were cut off and she had lots of scars, which have healed. She was heart worm positive. Elizabeth tended to Beauty and soon she became stronger. She had been with Elizabeth about two months, when Elizabeth suffered a terrible head injury. Now, it was Beauty's turn to be the nurse and she stayed by Elizabeth's side, as she began the slow recovery process. They have been the best of friends and now Beauty needs a special person to take her in. She will repay your friendship with steadfast devotion and love.
Beauty is a medium sized pit bull, spayed and up to date on shots. She no longer has heart worms, but her heart was damaged from the parasite and so she needs a relatively sedate life. Due to her abusive past, she does not like other dogs in her space, though she does get along with nice neighbor dogs, who stay on their side of the fence. We simply don't know how she'll respond to cats, as she's not been introduced to them.
BEAUTY LOVES ALL PEOPLE. She has had a lot of folks coming and going in her home, since Elizabeth had many friends and home health folks visiting. Beauty loved them all. She is good with children. She loves to run around her small yard, but needs to be able to stop when she is tired. She likes to 'play' with her stuffed animals that Elizabeth provided. We want to honor Elizabeth by finding the perfect home for his loving dog.
If you feel your home might be the right place for such a great dog - the place to start is with the adoption application found at www.dfwrescueme.org/adopt. Once submitted, the foster will contact you promptly to tell you more and to arrange a time to meet!
The adoption fee for all of our dogs is $250.00, which includes their vaccinations and spay/neuter.
Beauty is participating in the DFW Rescue Me Guest Dog Program, so ongoing care and custody are provided by their foster, not by DFWRM.
