Lady is a beautiful Lab/Shepherd mix, about 1-1/2 years old. Maggie, Sophia, Tush, Tater and "Cat" are all sweet little puppies, but not from the same litter, and none of them belong to Lady, even though she looked after the gang through this long transport.
We're not sure how they all ended up at the shelter, but they owe their lives to the selfless rescue volunteers.
Tamara, with Homeward Bound Dog rescue, shed some light on "Cat"...
Puppy “Cat” had surgery on her eye when she was two weeks old – she had a massive infection on the side of her face and it went into her eye before her eyes were even open. The infection was under the skin and you could barely notice it except that she was slightly puffy.
The vet thought it was best to try to save and possibly fix the eye when she was that young. Unfortunately she is now blind in that eye, but the vet opted to keep it in.
To top it off, Cat's mom did not want to be a mom and was harming them so she had to be hand fed – otherwise, I may not have even noticed the infection - so I named her Cat as she seemed to have at least 9 lives “)
Thank you everyone for getting this crew up there! All have landed in foster homes and I believe Maggie is being adopted by folks who have her sister!
