Charlotte was found injured by a man in north Georgia, After 4 days of searching unsuccessfully for her owner, he reluctantly turned her over to a local shelter. The small shelter had no resources to pay for veterinary care so they intended to euthanize her the next day. I saw her photo on the internet late that night and impulsively offered to take her. Early the next afternoon I was told a rescue group had volunteered to take her, but later that evening the shelter volunteer called back and said the rescue group backed out. She asked if I would take her and I agreed. After surgery to repair a fractured femur, a spay surgery that revealed a pregnancy, and a positive heartworm test, she is recovering at my home! Healing her leg is first priority and heartworm treatment is next after it's clear she won't require another surgery. She is the sweetest dog I've ever met and though I've never considered myself a small dog person, I am afraid she is a "foster failure". This photo is the one that grabbed my heart and inspired me to send that fateful email.
