Mercy Joe

Mercy was a dog that had been rescued by Living Free Animal Sanctuary. She had been running around Idyllwild with a broken leg and a choke chain embedded in her mouth. They rehabbed her for a year and then put her up for adoption. We adopted her. At first she was very timid, but after several months she was doing summersaults on the couch after dinner. One of my greatest blessings was when one morning I saw a blanket hanging half way out of the doggie door. Upon investigation I found that she had gathered everything she could find in the yard during the night and brought it to the blanket and made herself a "nest". She knew that she was loved and this was her forever home!
