Gloria - PREGNANT NEEDS FOSTER's Story...
We named her Gloria because the Christmas season is just starting. And she fits right into the old story, because she's pregnant, and there was no room for her anywhere on those cold, empty streets of Detroit.
Gloria once belonged to someone. She is crate trained and likes people. She gets along with other dogs. But somehow she ended up homeless and hungry, slinking along the shadows to keep herself safe. She is skinny, but her puppies are coming soon, so her belly is fat.
She was drawn to an area where she heard other dogs barking, and she came across two houses with fences encircling some fat, happy canines. Someone had set out a dish of dog food on the corner, and she gobbled it up one night, when the lucky dogs and their humans had gone to bed.. The next night she found more food there, so she looked around, and--wonder of wonders--found a vacant house down the street with the door open. She found shelter there in the empty rooms.
We caught her after a week. She couldn't resist the cookies, or the sweet, soothing tone of the human's voice. It reminded her of long ago, when she'd belonged to someone, when she hadn't had to worry about anything.
Gloria looks to be about 10 months old. She's a big girl--probably mastiff and lab--with a beautiful dark brindle coat. She's sweet , a little fearful at first but eager to please. She needs a quiet foster home to birth and care for her puppies. A canine Christmas story. A Detroit Christmas story. Is there someone out there who can help give it a happy ending?
