Miracle on Reach Road

This little dog arrived as a stray on 12/8/11.  (The camera had the wrong date!)  As you can see from the photo, she was very emaciated.  Her gums were completely white.

We began feeding her small meals, wormed her, and weighed her to monitor her progress.  Just when we were ready to take her to the veterinarian's, she passed a yard of stool that was mostly fabric!!!!

The poor little girl was unable to absorb what she ate because she had ingested so much fabric.  Her weight on intake was 27.8 pounds.  We are happy to report that she is a little over 31 pounds now, her gums are pink, and she is happy.  She is timid and will growl if she feels intimidated.  However, if you get her out of her kennel she quickly warms up to people. 

 We named her Destiny and her recovery is the best Christmas gift we could receive.  (Donuts are a close second.)
