Tessa/Tillie:: From feral to family!

Tessa, a very shy dog in the McBride’s projects, was surrendered to Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue. Tessa was a stunning juvenile tri-colored long-haired shepherd, but was very frightened and was difficult for the owner to catch so we could take her.

She spent about one week at the Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue and learned reluctantly to walk on leash. When she got off leash, she was mistrustful of people and was difficult to get back in the kennel. She often hid in the dog enclosure of the kennel.

Also surrendered that day was Teddy another beautiful long-haired male shepherd, possibly Tessa's littermate.Teddy was transferred to All Dog Rescue. We look forward to an update on Teddy's journey.

Pet Haven took Tessa into foster care and we recently received an update that she has been adopted. Thank you all for supporting Red Lake Rosie's Rescue! Had we not got Tessa & Teddy when we did, they would have lived short miserable lives as feral dogs. Just look at Tessa now, thanks to you!! 

I just thought you’d like to know that Tessa has found her home.

Merry said that Tessa was comfortable with them as soon as she met them. She’s now Tillie and the handsome guy on the left is Roscoe, an 8 year old flat-coat retriever who is apparently still a bit of a wild man and thus just her speed. They've got a fenced back yard to play in. We’re connected to them on Facebook so we’ll get updates on her. 

Thanks for helping her get out of a bad situation and sending her on down to us, it was a fun month with her.
