    Sadie was found as a stray in Ky, and was placed in a Kill shelter. Homeward Bound Rescue from MN got her out of the shelter and brought her here to MN.
    I picked her up from the drop off point and brought her here to my house to her forever home. Sadie was very underweight and a very fearful dog. She was afraid of the snow (I don't blame her for that LOL) afraid of toys, afraid of being touched, afraid of my two Boston Terriers, and even afraid to lay down.... One year later Sadie loves to play with her two Boston Terrier buddies, loves to play, go for walks, being petted, and hogs my bed LOL. Sadie has gained 17lbs, and now she needs to loose 3lbs :( The only thing she is scared of is the lake, she is just terrified of going by the water, I wonder if she was caught in the floods they had in KY last year? Sadie is a great dog and now you would never know she had this terrible past. Before I forget Sadie is a Border Sheltie (Border Collie / Sheltie Mix) and is ~3 years old

    That is a wonderful story! I'm so happy Sadie adapted well and made great friend with your Boston Terriers. It's amazing the progress Rescue dogs make in wonderful homes despite the past they've lived.

    I would love to see a picture of her! Thank you for changing this little girl's world!

    Doesn't it just amaze you that these sweet, sensitive little dogs have the strength to overcome terrible pasts? I look at Tinsel today and marvel at his braveness and feel love just wash over me like a tidal wave. Thanks for sharing.

    I love to hear stories about pups who have passed through hell and made it to heaven on earth. Thank you for adopting Sadie, and giving her the home she deserves.
