A beautiful young dog named "Charade" has overcome an incredibly hard past. In March, the dog was discovered beneath a storage shed with a litter of newborn pups.
The good Samaritan who found her reached out for help and Janice Wolf, founder of the Arkansas-based rescue agency Rocky Ridge Refuge, agreed to sponsor the abandoned family. Charade was taken to a veterinarian where x-rays revealed that over 40 pellets were buried in her body.
The new mother also was suffering from an injury to her hip - either the result of abuse, or perhaps from being struck by a car.
After months of care in a foster home, the time has come for Charade to find a forever home. The puppies have already found new homes and Charade has no lingering effects from her injuries.
Charade's foster mom wrote the following information about this wonderful dog:
She's made incredible progress and is a happy and healthy girl. She's house-broken, crate trained, incredibly smart and will be ready for her forever home after she is spayed.
Janice Wolf added:
She needs a 5 foot fence, is good with other dogs of all sizes and children. Seems ok with cats too. About 18 months old and weighs 53lbs.
