These photos are of sweet Edna (now named Cora) after she arrived in Oregon to live with her new foster family through Family Dogs New Life. Edna was one of the 33 dogs we rescued in December. When you read about where Edna was rescued from, you can understand how amazing it is to see her getting a bath, learning about snow and playing with toys! I first saw Edna (Cora) sitting curled up in her filthy crate. She was all the way in the back of room filled with barking, frantic dogs; she was #30. We had triaged her as the dog that most urgently needed to be removed since she was extremely emaciated, covered in scars, and appeared to be very lethargic. We were told Cora was 12 years old. The Animal Control Officers carried her out of the house first. They set her down on the concrete outside and she tentatively walked on the ground and squinted in the sunlight and began wagging her tail.
She stayed at the shelter for over a month while we worked on finding the right placement for this old girlie who had been through so much. She can spark around other dogs but is the sweetest lap dog you can ever meet. Thank you to Megan Alexander for hooking us up with Family Dogs New Life who took on Edna (aka Cora), Joni (aka Zoomie) and another one of our dogs from another abuse case.
Here are photos of Joni (aka Zoomie) in her new home and getting kisses from her foster bulldog sister!
