Leah was rescued from a construction site in October 2020 where she had given birth to two puppies, but was unable to feed herself or them due to a major mouth infection.
She now loves hanging out in the office or clinic, and is still a bit skinny, but getting fatter every day!
When we rescued her, she was painfully thin and would not eat the food people left out for her. One puppy had already died and she was not able to nurse because she had no milk. On examination at the shelter we saw that she had a horrific mouth infection so it was probably too painful to eat.
The other puppy died within the day.
As she wasn't putting on weight, and was so timid and seemed really depressed from losing her puppies, we decided to send her to our fosters Mike and Joy to fatten her up and give her some one to one attention.
But she was terrified and escaped on the first night she was there - it took a long time to find her, and we decided
to bring her back to the shelter.
She is still skinny but we feed her 3 times a day and also give her supplements.
She has recently been spayed so hopefully now she will fatten up!
Leah is really finding her voice now - barking at dogs that are annoying her, growling at dogs that encroach on her space! It's great to see as she was so fearful for so long. She can really hold her own!
Her health has been good this month with no major issues.
We also leash trained her so now she goes out for regular walks.
We bathed her today and took her for a walk
