|Her name is Phoenix, she is ~5 years old, and her former owners moved months ago and just left her behind. A couple of weeks ago, I was going in that direction for something, and saw her still at the abandoned house, all skin and bones. I asked the neighbor about it and he said that the woman who had owned Phoenxi told him to shoot her and he was going to do it! I loaded her up in the truck and am taking care of her for now. An uncle's friend was supposed to take her, but that fell through.
Phoenix is an absolutely beautiful dog. She is very sweet but is extremely hand shy and she shows other signs of having been abused. She is also pregnant by dog knows what, as she was running around on her own for at least 3 months and is not altered, but shows signs of having recently been in heat.
I have no illusions of adopting out a pregnant dog, but I would like to line up a home for her for after she has the pups, whom I will be finding a home for too. I would love to keep this dog, she is absolutely perfect, but the no dogs in the house rule still stands and I am not budging on not keeping a dog unless it can stay in the house.
