Meg was bought from what is believed to have been a ‘puppy farm’ at age 8 weeks. Nine years on and after being kept mostly outside for the past 6 years whilst the young couple decided to start a family. Meg then found herself unwanted.
Luckily she came to the attention of AfG, as originally she had been advertised on an internet site used to give away and sell animals, so the outcome for Meg could have been dire had we not have been made aware of her plight and in the position to take her in.
The years Meg had spent outdoors had effected her health as she had frostbite/sunburn on the ends of her ears, and sore pads and had a build up of tartar on her teeth. It was obvious she had been without adequate exercise for some time as her pads were pale and her nails overgrown.
She soon settled into one of our very experienced foster homes and enjoyed the company of the 2 young boys and her young Rottweiler housemate, who, once she got settled, soon put in his place.
Meg was inoculated and neutered and received a dental with two teeth extracted. Meg soon gained condition with nutritious food and lots of exercise and blossomed into a very healthy girl with a glossy coat. Her foster carer and family could not bear to part with Meg and so soon adopted her permanently.
She makes herself comfortable on the sofa or upstairs on her choice of human beds and will be able to put her previous life well behind her. Her family cannot fault her in any way and just love her to bits.
Meg is very happy, healthy and active with a life full of fun and adventure, so we hope she has very many happy years ahead of her.
