Meet Hope, a scared girl that has made her way to us from Somerset, KY. Hope’s owner has Alzheimer’s and his grandson was being paid to take care of him but apparently did not care anything about the dogs. Hope was put out in a pen with other large dogs that decided she was a chew toy. She has bite marks all over her, a wound of a quarter size and open and so many bites on her one elbow that it was extremely infected. Hope is also very skinny which has not helped her health situation at all and our vets say that she was only days away from not making it. She is in a foster home currently where she is learning to overcome the fear of a leash and become more confident with people while she heals and gains some weight. We will keep you posted as we learn more about her. Hope is 2-3 years old, red, natural eared female
UPDATE: She is hanging out with a couple of other dober dorks in her foster home and she loves them. She is much more confident and holds her head and tail up high. She is still skiddish over noises and fast movements, as we expected, but her confidence level is soaring and she will do well transitioning into a new home. We hope you can find room in your home for Hope to finally have a real home of her own.
