We have adopted a Lucky Star Rescue named Nora.
What a sweet 6 year old girl!! She arrived last night and is very scared still but seems to love Molly & Maxwell already. She has the biggest 'Doe eyes' and unfortunately there is a deep saddness in those eyes.
Here is her Lucky Star page:
I THOUGHT I was prepared for how scared she was going to be coming to a new home, but I wasn't. She only had a month with her foster mum and she had 6 long years in a puppy mill.
If anyone has some advice on how to get a rescue to 'come' that would be so helpful! Last night we put Nora, Molly & Max out in the fenced yard to potty and play....then we could NOT get Nora to come to go back inside. We tried luring her with a cookie, she took it out of my hand, but was too scared to walk through the gate to come inside. It was super cold out and after close to a half hour of trying my dh & son had to corner her and pick her up. We hated doing it, but it was getting too cold and she had been outside too long by then. I do NOT want to have to corner her and force her to be picked up again unless it cannot be helped. Today is supposed to be extremely cold, so I will put her in a Puppia and keep her on a leash to take her to potty.
We are thrilled that our Nora is home.
