Just wanted to let you all know that I collected Tilly from Pauline's rescue in Cork on Saturday. Tilly was an ex puppyfarm breeding dog, seems never to have had any contact with humans and knows nothing about how to be a dog- it breaks our hearts. She is a sweet sweet little thing and we are taking it very gently with her, of course, and hopefully she will learn about having fun from our other dogs. She is eating well, and just now followed my husband out while he was hanging out the washing.!
Our past experience with Whisper- a very similar story, helps us to know that miracles can happen, and that there is nothing as rewarding as giving a rescue dog a home worthy of them, for however long or short a time that may be. It is truly humbling when a dog who has been so horribly treated gives their love and trust to you unconditionally. I'll let you know of her progress.
