My name is Melody and I was rescued by Furry Kids' Refuge with my 11 puppies from a kill shelter. I was so deathly thin & unhealthy that when they took us from the shelter straight to the vets (my puppies were only 5 1/2 weeks old) he told them to not let the puppies nurse off of me or I was going to die. He gave me shots to help me start getting healthy and I went to the groups boarding facility to start fattening up & begin my road to wellness. I have been so well taken care of here and just wag my tail all the time (its called happy tail) much that I started hitting it on everything and caused it to be amputated. I look really adorable now with my stubby tail and I don't ever have to worry about it getting hurt again.....which is great because I still wag/wiggle like crazy !!

I like all the dogs here and just love to run and play with them. I will however, stand my ground if another jumps on me. I will stop as soon as my guardian says no. I have no issues with food & people but since I was so starved before, I really don't want to share my food with the other dogs so I get crated while I eat.

No one knows if I'm housebroke since I'm in boarding (all our foster homes are full) but with a little time, patience and love I would master it.

I pull when walking on a leash but when I'm worked with I catch on quick so all I need is some daily walking and I will be great at it.

I have been spayed, heart worm tested negative, vaccinated, micro chipped, wormed numerous times, and with my adoption comes a 2 week trial.......WOW !!!
