Mecca is named for the place she was discovered, the Mecca Hills of Palm Springs, CA in late April, 2013. She's believed to have been abandoned there to die. The kind people that found her knew they couldn't take her in, but didn't want to drop her at a shelter either. I spotted a listing for her online one day and my heart went out to the poor girl. I decided to take her in and try to find a rescue for her. Shortly after changing hands, the one year old Mecca weighed in at 60lbs. She was scared, bony, dehydrated, and showed signs of past injury. She's had xrays, shots, and bloodwork done all in one scary day. Her first few days were frightening for us all, not knowing what could be wrong with her. But her xrays and bloodwork came back clear and she grows stronger every day! After weighing our options, we decided to keep her. I was planning on adopting a rescued dog after my move to Milwaukee in August 2013. I had no place for her in my home in California. But with a lot of help, she was able to be boarded and I can take her out daily for any length of time. She begins her obedience training in two weeks and in three months, she'll be road tripping from California to Wisconsin where we'll get the new beginning we both hoped for. The last few years have been hard on me, but just one week with Mecca has made me the happiest I've been in such a long time. I'm so thankful this beautiful dog came into my life. <3
