Greta's Story...
Name: Greta
Age: 7 years old
Disability: Being a skinny black dog in an overcrowded shelter. She needed some minor vetting, that we are taking care of here at PWD.
Breed/Weight: Terrier/retriever mix, 30 pounds.
History: Greta was stray found in southern Maryland.
Finally Greta's fate turned last week and timing was perfect. I went to visit a stray blind dog at our local shelter, and Greta happened to be out in the rescue yard being walked by a friend/volunteer. I asked about her, volunteer explained she had been there for over 4 months being overlooked by many, she was one of the only dogs NOT adopted during the "clear the shelter day." although not technically disabled, I could tell she needed some good vetting and some weight she was clearly underweight. She needed out, and she made it quite clear she did not want to be return to her cell, her brakes were on. I decided to step up for her, and so happy we did.
What a fantastic dog, within days she already looks better, gaining weight, her fur and skin are beginning to look and feel better. She will have minor precautionary surgery this week to remove a small mass. We love her and she has fit in great with the other dogs! A quiet girl, (except at meal time) and totally 100 percent house broken. She loves her bed and is so thankful to be here. She will be a great companion dog.
