Amy Rose, a 9ear old female poodle mix, was taken from a hoarding situation in the south up to the North East by a wonderful rescue Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. They took care of all of her physical needs (Mammary tumor removal, spay, dental, shots) and found through blood work that her kidneys weren’t working well plus that the tumors were malignant. So they put her in a foster home, then another and another until her Angel Amy in NJ took her on. She had her for 9 months and started the trust building and loving consistent care. I saw her on the Petfinder sight one night in August and fell in love with her face. I had adopted from them before so they knew about us. The bio stated she was "independent" and liked her space plus couldn’t be handled above the neck. Challenge accepted, so she came here to live with us. And it has been wonderful. She still has a way to go but she got her first grooming without anesthesia yesterday so she is learning that people can be trusted. Sadly within one week she went from eating to fussy to blood work that told us she was in renal failure. We had no options and she passed quietly at home, in my arms, knowing the love at the end of her life she should’ve known all along. I will tell you she took a piece of my heart with her. She left us in April of 2020, we didn’t even have her one year.
