After about 10 minutes and a lot of smelling each other they became firm friends. We decided to take her and filled out the paper work. We got as many details as possible about her. She was owner surrendered because the family was moving. Her front leg was amputated at 4 months old. We don't know the reason. She is also very thin. She has been in the shelter for two months. While we were there we met some ladies from Bully Breed Rescue in New Canaan. This is a good place to find a Pitbull mix.
Lucky has already had one litter and we needed to spay her as soon as possible. We were given no vet history on her so she needed to be given her shots and be checked for parasites and other nasties. Her surgery went well and we are bringing her home today.
I am glad she is starting this endeavor during the summer when her work load is diminished. I am starting to worry that she won't have time to do her regular work on top of this project. "I will" she told me. I asked her if she thought all of this work was worth it. She said that it is not work to her, that saving dogs is exactly what she wants to do and that she is fulfilling a higher spiritual purpose. It feels good to the core. It is hard to argue with that.
