Jackie: a truly miraculous change


I just wanted to send you an update and let you know how my RLRR puppy is doing. I adopted Jackie (a shepherd/pit mix puppy) through MARS in July 2009.

JACKIE & SISTER JASMINE AT RLRRThere is a picture of Jackie with her sister(?) Jasmine in the July 3rd, 2009, blog post titled Pet Haven Visits Red Lake Rosie's Rescue.

JULY 2009Jackie had pretty bad Demodex and was missing most of the hair on her head and front legs. She also had a secondary staph infection and was covered with sores.

AUGUST 2009We made many trips to the vet, but she is finally healthy and looking great.

SEPTEMBER 2009Jackie is an amazing dog and I am so lucky to have her.

We have completed multiple training classes, including obedience, agility, rally, and canine good citizen.

We will be entering our first dog show next month and I can't wait for Jackie to get her first Rally title.

Here are a few pictures of her along the way and now. Sorry, there are so many. :)

APRIL 2010Thank you so much for all that you do and especially for saving my little girl. THANK YOU!

Wow - you'd never know that that's the same dog! In the one pic the kitten seems to be thinking, "I've got to be dreaming; I gotta watch what I eat before I go to bed at night ...." I also like the crazy positions dogs get into when they sleep - they're not as conservative as cats. :) Good luck to you guys during competition! Get out there & show your stuff (and share the good news with us). Thx a bunch for the update!
