Hi, I’ll be attending LnF Dog Rescue’s Adoption Event 'Home 4 The Holidays! Saturday 12/10/16 from 11-1PM. Would love if you came to meet me in person!! Details at www.lnfdogs.org
This little sweet soul Cassidy has had a horrible life – someone terribly abused and neglected her. She came in from a very rural area in KY -- you know the movie Deliverance?
I’ve rescued coming up on 500 dogs since 2-24-2004 when LnF was founded & I have a “gift” of being able to get dogs to trust me -- but I have to put Cassidy in the top 10 of my worse cases. It took months for her to be able to come CLOSE to me to be petted. She is so afraid of being beaten again. She & I have worked out a lot over these last few months since she arrived but I know she will only be able to be adopted to someone who has had real experience with abused dogs. The only time I really see what 'happy' looks like for her is when she is with her foster siblings. She's a pack dog that's for sure, they make her feel safe. It would be perfect if she could go to a home with another dog but not mandatory.
She is so pretty, so soft in spirit & we’ve had a lot of interest in her, especially being that she’s so small for a Basset Mix & it’s odd that she’s only about 40 lbs. – she came in being just under 30 lbs. but I will only allow her to go to a family who knows how to help her trust again. She’ll love you & desperately will want to come to you --- but she’ll take a lot of patience to work thru her fear.
