A Sad Story with a Happy Ending

Lola was found wandering the streets with baling wire wound around her neck and very thin.  The shelter assumed she was a “puppy mill” Mom who somehow escaped.  Thankfully somebody found her and brought her to the shelter.  She must have had to fight for scraps all her life as she fought tooth and nail with other dogs in 3 other homes before we found her.  Lola was only 60 lbs. back then.  Knowing her background we brought our very large Chinook cross to meet Lola at the shelter and they played like puppies, but when we got home and I dropped a cookie I thought Lola was going to attack him!  It was very scary for a while, but we couldn’t send her back to the shelter again.  We worked with her and she learned that she would never miss a meal or be hungry again.  She is so loving we wouldn’t trade her for anything.  Now at 90+ lbs. she and our Chinook are inseperable – a match made in heaven!  We are so grateful to the folks at the Camden-Rockport Animal Rescue League for taking such wonderful care of her.     -Mary M.
