5 Feb 2017: Heidi is one of the most gentle loving girls you could ever hope to meet.....and yet this wonderful soul has known her share of pain. Heidi had been so abused t ... hat when she came into the shelter she had to have a leg amputated. Just look at her....look into her eyes. This is a wonderful forgiving precious dog.
"Here is a picture of this beautiful girl when we found her and the awful condition she was in. I just can not believe this sweet and wonderful dog hasn't been adopted. My heart hurts for her . . .I found her wandering down Highway 127 dragging her broken leg that she had been gnawing at, swollen, infected and a wire clothes hanger wrapped around her leg so much ...and so tight that it had swollen to at least the size of baseball. Her nose was cut up from where every time she would chew her rotted leg the wire would scratch her nose. Heidi is not good with cats
To donate to Heidi's vet care, you may do so at :
"Everyone needs a spiritual guide, mine is my dog, he has great wisdom to impart, he makes friends easily and doesn't hold a grudge, he enjoys simple pleasures and takes each day as it comes, like a true Zen master he eats when he is hungry and sleeps when he is tired, and best of all he befriends me with an unconditional love that human beings would do well to imitate."
This quote really puts things into perspective for us: many of the dogs that we have sent you over time have experienced abuse, injury and neglect at the wicked and heartless hands of humans; however, they still wag their tails with boundless joy and love with a purity as if they had never been hurt. This is a great life lesson for us all.
