This beautiful lady was left tied up outside in a homeowner's yard -- her chain so short she couldn't reach her makeshift dog house or the few scraps of food left in her bowl. It was cold and rainy when she went into labor, and instead of welcoming her newborns into the world in a warm and dry place, she was forced to give birth to 11 adorable puppies in the mud. When a neighbor came home to find mom and her pups in the mud, she became incensed and contacted the Society. We immediately dispatched a team to confiscate the whole family! Despite her meager beginnings,Mom has done her job well & her healthy pups were all adopted. Now it is her turn to find a better life. She has not known any love except that which our staff showers upon her. Mom, now named Sassy, has become a very special favorite and would make a wonderful addition to any family.
UPDATE - 3/2/05 - Great News! Sassy has been adopted into a wonderful home with two kids that just love her!
