Sally


" This is our baby girl... Sally. She is a rescue. We found in an ad and gave
$150 for her release. We had no idea the extent of her grief until we began
putting the pieces together as best we could. She was undoubtedly part of a
puppy mill, as she had had who knows how many litters of pups before we got
her. Somewhere down the line she was then spayed, hopefully by a vet that
didn't want her to go through anymore. She is so small, she may have had to
have surgery for the birth and the vet may have decided to fix things then.
From the looks of her teats, she was at least used as a nurse maid for other
puppies as well. When we found her ad in the paper, we did not want a
breeder, a show dog, or anything like that. We simply wanted a love muffin.
We went to pick her up from the filthiest property around and she was
definitely a love muffin. But, her nutrition was bad, she needed care, and
she really needed to be loved in return. We are not sure if the man that
sold her had any affiliation with what had happened to her, or if he just
picks up strays then sells them. He had a multitude of dogs of all different
breeds on his property and he lives in an area where pets are dumped
frequently. He played the part though and acted as if he was the caring
owner, but she got in the car with us without looking back and would not
even answer to the name he kept calling her, "Chiquita", which simply means
"very small" in Spanish. He also told us that she had never been spayed when
in fact she was. We took her for her first checkup at the vet and found that
she had advanced heartworms which could be another reason why she may have
been dumped. We had her treated and she has been fine. All of this took
place before she was a year old. Now, she has also had a bout with cancer
and is in remission, but still remains on chemo-therapy. However, she has
energy to spare, she has gained weight, the vet tells us she is healthy, and
when we got her (for my wife) I had absolutely no idea how attached I would
become. She is a love and I could not imagine life without her. My only
regret is that I would like to have saved her sooner. But, she has been with
us for 3 years now, she will never have to look back, she can have a quality
life with people that love her, and she is never going anywhere else"

First of all, Thank You a MILLION times for rescuing a Boston from a life of hell. That one small act makes you very special people, and you now have the respect of thousands (or more) Boston terrier lovers.

I don't know you, but I hope that you enjoy every blessing that life has to offer for your act of kindness.

My gosh, she is a sweetie. She looks so much like our Tai (except that Tai is a boy). She is very lucky to have found someone who loves her. Here's wishing her the very best for many years to come.

a thousand times a thousand BT kisses is your reward for saving this beautiful little girl.You and your family are very special people. Please give Sally a hug and a kiss on the head from my family and my Boston, Arthur.

What great people you are! A few years ago my family adopted a mistreated dog. (he wasn't a BT, but just as sweet) He since has died from cancer, but we greatly loved him. We didn't know exactly how old he was, but we said that his real life didn't start until he became part of our family.
