Sweet Winnie - cattle dog

Winnie loves you

The following was submitted by a New Hope Cattle Dog of Arizona volunteer:

“I first met Winnie in the dark and late at night, and I couldn’t really see her. I had an impression of a sweet face and a skinny body that was wagging (yes her entire body was wagging!) but that was it. Winnie came to me for foster after she had been pulled from Pima Animal Care and Control with a severe case of kennel cough. It was so bad that at one point in time the people who originally pulled Winnie from PACC thought that she would die. But she was a tough little cattle dog, and she wasn’t going to let something like kennel cough get her down. The next morning, I was right about the sweet face. I fell in love immediately. Her forehead had a dent in it that just added to her cuteness. We figured that she had been a working dog at one point in time, but something had happened and she ended up fighting for her life at PACC.

Kudos to New Hope Cattle Dogs for all their hard work.

Consider helping them out this month by making a donation directly to their group or buy some bracelets. Valentine’s Day is coming! Each bracelet is one-of-a-kind and comes with a paw charm. Bracelets cost $20 and the entire amount goes directly to the cattle dogs!

Lady curls up to rest

Lady curls up to rest

January 2012: New Hope Cattle Dogs

Meet Lady! Lady was one of the special needs seniors. She came from Oklahoma where a good Samaritan rescued her from a busy I-10 bridge. She was frozen in place with fear because she is blind and didn’t know where to go to avoid traffic or the edge.

New Hope Cattle Dogs was contacted and a rescue was in order.

When she came she was still scared, in pain and had a huge mat of hair on her back, the first mat we have ever seen on a cattle dog. It took a lot of shampooing and brushing but she started looking like normal cattle dogs eventually.

Lady was only 6 years old and had severe cataracts to the point of total blindness as well as a leg injury. She rapidly learned to trust the rescue group to be her eyes and within a couple of weeks was going outside to potty on her own, limping along at her speed. She received pain meds, a brace for her front foot and hoped for a wonderful adopter although New Hope Cattle Dog Rescue was prepared to keep her for the rest of her life if it came down to it. Fortunately, an angel was smiling down on Lady.

That adopter showed up as a family in Albuquerque, NM. They were looking for a special needs dog that they could give a forever home to. They saw Lady on the website and drove to Tucson to meet her. It was love at first sight. Within weeks at Lady’s new home, she was running around without the brace and investigating the forest in the Sandia Mountains. She loves the snow, her walks with her mom and is living a wonderful life which she so deserves.

Lady was an unexpected success because the rescue didn’t think that anyone was going to want to adopt such a special needs dog. But now she has a new leash on life and is living it with all she’s got!

The Beading Divas love happy endings!

Please consider making a donation to this deserving charity or buying a bracelet or three to help raise funds for the group and their kindness to special needs dogs.
