We recently rescued a bruised and scarred 1.5 year old female dog from Pound Buddies Animal Shelter and Adoption Center in Muskegon. They do a wonderful job with abused and abandoned animals. We renamed it Chella!
She was very shy at first with her tail tucked in, her eyes showed fear to be around us, her body shook even as we showed her love and a safe haven. Even refusing to eat or drink, we were encouraged when she started accepting dog treats.
