When we thought no way we could do any more this week this sweetheart came crashing in. We were tagged on her post saying her mammary ruptured and was brought into the shelter with her 9 babies. She was bleeding on their floor and the owners wanted to know why the shelter couldn’t just fix her so she could nurse and keep making babies for them. Seeing her absolutely shredded our heart. we knew right away not a chance we could turn our heads. We knew we could handle mama and her potentially major surgical needs but didn’t have 9 baby fosters. We asked our amazing fearless friends at @southcharlottedogrescue who immediately agreed to help this family. They are INCREDIBLE. We were able to save mama and her babies . Fnf has mama and 5 babies and SCDR has 4 babies. Together we are better. When the rescue world moves together for a family you see amazing things happen. “All for the dogs” is how we both view it. We named this sweet mama “mamie”. She has lived a life of hell. Thankfully her babies will NEVER have to live the way she did. We will make sure Mamie gets the best new start. Her comeback will be a beautiful thing. Thank you to every single one of you. Knowing that you will rally around her makes it possible for us to jump right in. Mamie has already been to the vet and shes on major meds and TLC for now. In a few weeks we will re check to see if we need surgery or just continued wound care. This sweet mama just kept looking at us thankful we were helping her. Watching her melt into our arms and relax finally knowing she and her babies are safe was heart breaking and reminds us our purpose. People failed you Mamie. Your worst days were just a chapter in your story and the next one is so much better.
Mamie is now recovered beautifully! Her ruptured mammary is now completely healed. She is a complete sweetheart. She is shy at first but warms up quickly. She loves other dogs and is learning how to play. It is very clear Mamie had never lived a life of being someone's pet. She was breeding machine. Mamie now has learned how to cuddle and loves toys and "cookies". She is the best girl and we cant wait to see her find her furever.
*does great with other dogs after proper introductions
*best placement is with older children because she is still learning her body size
*She would really love someone who will spoil her extra with lots of ball throws and toys
