This is Lena-she looks like a cross between a shepherd and a husky (really, she is just one big ball of fluffy fur!) She weighs approximately 45 pounds. Her background is sadly pretty common in rural southwest Georgia; she was abandonded a dumpster in the country. One of our foster homes had been going by that dumpster for quite some time to feed stray dogs that had been left there. Every time she went by, more dogs and puppies would slowly come out of hiding. Eventually, she earned their trust enough to take them all to the vet for vaccinations and medical attention and she had all of them spayed or neutered . They are now in her care. Because this group was raised around other dogs and did not know human contact for so long, they are quite shy around people. They love their foster mom so it proves that with time, understanding and patience, they can learn to trust and be pets. They are great with each other and are good with other dogs (untested with cats). In the right home, any of these dogs could really thrive. Dogs like these bond very deeply with their owner-it is almost like they know they have been given a second chance and they want to show you how much they appreciate you.
