So here’s a lesson for all of you who have dogs. Your dog has the potential to bite someone. No matter how much you believe they wouldn’t, there is always the possibility. I have a story for you that will, hopefully, give you “paws”.
A long time ago, in a galaxy, or lifetime, far, far away lived the best dog ever. (It was 1992).Her life started out rather rough. She was forced to have many litter of puppies before she was able to escape, or was dumped, with a couple of her puppies along a busy highway. Luckily for her, someone took pity on her after she had been hit by a car. The poor baby’s right foot had been crushed.
Not only was she in danger of losing her leg, she was also dangerously thin. You see, she was a boxer. She should have weighed between 50 and 60 pounds. She weighed only 16. She was a pitiful sight. She should have been a robust and healthy dog as boxers tend to be nicely stout. It didn’t matter though. She was a happy, friendly, and resilient dog.
For the next couple of weeks she was nursed back to health by a wonderful vet who made sure her leg was saved, she was fed, and she wouldn’t have to endure more litters of pups. She had done her part in the procreation of her breed. It was time for her to retire. She was a mere 3 years old.
After she rebounded, she was given to the local animal shelter with the hope she would find a home. As the vet tech left, she told them to call her if no one adopted her. She couldn’t see such a nice dog being euthanized. They promised they would, but it’s a good thing she called to check up. The wonderful survivor was next on the list to be euthanized. The vet tech rushed down to the shelter to rescue her and take her home. She decided she could find a home for the little girl she called, “Baby”. Little did she know what lay in store for Baby.
