ABBY WAS ADOPTED AUGUST 17, 2008!
Abby was taken to the shelter by her owner who didn't want her any more. Kind of like last season's dress you take to Good Will because you don't want it any more. Abby was terrified at the shelter. When the other dogs would start barking her eyes would dart back and forth and she would shake. We had to leave her in the shelter for a week until a foster spot opened up but as soon as one did, we went and got Abby.
Abby behaved like a perfect young lady in the car on the ride to her foster home. She sat quietly in the back seat, relieved that she was leaving the shelter behind her. Upon arrival at her foster home, she was given a bath. She didn't quite understand the whole bathing concept but she quickly caught on and started to cooperate. After a few hours she started to relax and play with toys. She is clearly much happier now. Her nails were incredibly long but she sat very nicely for her manicure and pedicure and can now walk much more comfortably.
Abby is a very sweet dog, about 1/1/2 years old, weighing around around 50 pounds. She has now been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and tested negative for heartworm.
