...completely accidentally. Long story short she was running down the highway and a few people cornered her in a drain pipe and I was the one who had the leash. She was of course, chip-less, tag and collar-less , filthy and so stuffed with worms she should be oozing them.

I've put signs out and contacted poodle rescue but no one seems to be looking for her. Judging by the state of her belly she was a brood bitch for a lot of years so I'm disinclined to give her back anyway. Severe HW along with every other worm under the sun but her prognosis seems pretty good once she's well enough to take the 'Fast Kill' protocol the vet has set aside for her.

Anyway I've named her Beatrice. She's an older white girl who just waltzed right in and made herself at home. She's not going to feel too fabulous for the next few months but hopefully when all is said and done and she's been spayed and had her tummy tuck, she'll feel like a new dog.

Here is Miss Bea with Zephyr attempting to hog the spotlight. Please forgive the grooming job. I'm bringing her into work where someone with good scissors can make her look presentable.

Until she's better at least. Five/Six dogs is my slow descent into being "that crazy woman with the 40 dogs", but my trainer tells me since 3 of mine are small, two of those are seniors and Bea is likely a Senior that's like only having 3. laugh out loud (He has eight of course, six of whom are seniors who he couldn't find homes for due to health issues/age etc. Owning a kennel helps that I guess).

I'm not sure I believe him but even if I can't keep her there are several friends interested in her (One's a current spoodle owner so bonus) and 'Poodle Rescue' has pre-approved applications in for older standards so she can go somewhere nice regardless.

A poodle isn't like a dog, it's like a fuzzy roommate! I'm glad you've got lots of places for her to go when she's better. way to go

Lucky Miss Bea! There could have been so many worse outcomes for her!

She's a pretty girl, or will be when she's cleaned up....

Glad you saved her!!!

So glad you were able to take her in! Doesn't sound like she would have lasted much longer on her own.

Definitely need more pictures wink
