A volunteer writes: Connie has every reason to be wary of humans…..she’s been starved, used for breeding, neglected in every way possible, and yet her tail wags when she’s with us, she’s happy for the attention. I reached into my bag to give her a treat and she sat before I asked her to, and took it so gently. I wasn’t going to ask her to sit as I didn’t want her to ‘work’ for anything any more, and by all rights she should have grabbed the treat and it would have been understandable. Every rib bone shows, her hip bones stick out, her spine shows, there is no meat on this little body, except that of mammary glands swollen by nursing too many litters. She wags her tail at every touch and every look, coming up on the bench to sit with me and snuggle. She makes soft eye contact as if understanding that we are here to help her gain weight, feel safe and loved and find her a home that will pamper her as she should be. She’s given everything to the litters she’s nursed (she came in with two pups, Bobby and Eboni), and to the people who bred her. None of this has been her choice, of course, and it’s now our job to make sure she will never be taken advantage of again. She’s sweet, easy, and grateful for every kindness. Shouldn’t she have a lifetime of it, beginning now? We think so.
