Isabelle (Part IV): Life after puppies

The day the pups left, Isabelle got depressed. She was a great mom and she brooded in her kennel for a day or so.

Soon a litter of surrendered pups arrived at the shelter- and Isabelle cheered up and pretended to be the mom of every pup that came to the shelter. The pups would follow her around and she adored them all. Isabelle was soon spayed and having puppies was a thing of the past for her.

As the weather got colder, she wore a coat, then soon moved in to the cathouse bedroom. There Isabelle was first treated for lymes and anaplasma, and then on January 12th went back to the vet for heartworm treatment.

All Dog Rescue had taken all of her 9 puppies and now wanted to help Isabelle further by taking her into their foster care  to find her a nice warm indoor home. Isabelle will leave RLRR on her new adventure January 23rd. No more a garbage dumpster mama dog, but soon to be part of a family of her very own. No more suffering for Isabelle.

Thank you to Justin and Susan for rescuing her, to All Dog and Linda for helping her and her family have a good life, and to our donors who make it possible to provide the needed medical care for Isabelle and others like her.

Sincerely, Karen and RLRR

What goes around always comes around doesn't it? She got a helping hand and passed it right along. What an encouragement dogs are, best teachers of love.
