Kate the Corgi Retriever's Story...

 

Kate was living a very hard life in the woods. She was having litter after litter of puppies. The guys at the business' nearby, who fed her, weren't sure if she was feral or not. After trapping her, it was very apparent that she is NOT feral, just abandoned. She was very shy at first, but has really coming out of her shell. She is very lively and playful. After making a lot of progress, she began having trouble with her back legs. She still gets around very well and loves life, but she will probably be somewhat crippled this way for the rest of her life.

 

 

Kate survived on her own living in a large wooded area. Well, not totally on her own. The guys at the auto shop that abutted the property fed her and did what they could, but they couldn't stop her from breeding. And boy, did she breed! After I rescued her third litter for a total of 23 puppies, I really felt like I needed to stop this cycle. My reluctance was do to the belief that she was feral, and feral dogs are usually euthanized. What to do? What to do! Well, I found a vet who agreed to spay her, no matter how feral she was!!! So I trapped her, only to realize she was not at all feral, just abandoned. Joy!

Needless to say, Kate had a bit of a recovery period, not just from being spayed, but from the trauma of having been abandoned and forced to make it on her own. But she is such a litter trooper, she pulled it all together and became the affectionate family dog that she had obviously once been. Imagine my distress when, after all that, she started having health problem with her back legs. We did acupuncture and aquatherapy, and she got a lot better. But unless someone really special comes along, I expect that I will probably just have until she dies because she is incontinent. Now, I know that there are special people, ones who will go the extra mile for that special pet, and it is my hope that Kate will be found ~ she deserves it!
