Please read this wonderful story...
Martina was brought to us April 3, 2009 with a litter of puppies. Martina was a feral (wild) dog that had no direct human contact. She was often thrown bits of food from some kind humans, as she and her litters of puppies had always lived in the woods.
This year, things would be very different. She was spotted caring for her puppies and it seemed as though she had approximately 20 porcupine quills stuck in her face and neck.
Some humans had an idea. A plan was in place and her puppies were safely captured and she was taken into our vet to have her quills removed. Martina's puppies were all given physicals, and had their dew claws removed.
Her puppies have all been adopted, and Martina was spayed on November 10, 2009. We are looking for a very special home, as Martina is learning to trust humans. She rides well in the car and is getting the hang of the leash thing. It has been discovered that the vacuum tube at the bank and McDonald's are very magical places, for treats seem to appear out of thin air. They appreciate Martina's beauty and spirit.
We are looking for a quiet family with a fenced in yard, that have another dog, to help Martina with her transition from feral dog to house dog. If you have some time and love for a truly sweet canine, please give us a call. A retired person, or a homebased family would give her some extra bonding that she needs. She is the most loving and special dog that you will ever meet. We were honored to care for Martina and her puppies at our no kill sanctuary. She is indeed a very special girl. We also thank everyone for the supplies donated to us. Thank you for reading our story.
