All in the Family

Mixed (unknown)

Sadie is a small female shepard mix. She was found on the northern Arizona Reservation on a job site. If you are familiar with these areas you know that the feral dog population is a major problem. It is very upsetting for dog lovers to witness the stray and wild dogs who are starving, injured and sick. They are usually anapproachable and can be aggresive due to fear of humans. My husband found Sadie, she approached him which is very unusual. He called to say she was the "wiggliest" dog he'd ever seen and couldn't leave her there. She was starving and later we found out pregnant. We also found out from our vet she had signs of experiencing head trauma. (maybe thats why she wasn't afraid of humans??) a construction worker told my husband there was two of these dogs but one had been hit by a car and killed. We figured she must have been hit too. We nursed her back to health and when she had her four puppies were determined to find good homes for them. All of the puppies stayed in the family. We NEVER want to experience this again. We would never breed our animals as it is too hard to give the puppies away once you become attached. We worried about their future like they were our kids. We ended up with one of her sons, and they both fit in our pack like they were meant to be with us. Sadie is a grateful, loving puppy. We love her as she loves us.

What beautiful people you are to save Sadie like that! I, too, would have done that but not too many people will go to the full extent that you did!! You deserve a medal but I am sure that just having Sadie is rewarding enough! I wish their were more people like you in this world! Give Sadie and her pup a big hug & kiss from Maisie & I!!!!!!!

God bless you both.... As a dog lover and animal lover in general these situations bother me greatly. The world is a better place with people like u....I would have done the same thing.... Happy life to Sadie and her baby and all in your pack.

God Bless you all for being so compassionate. She is a very pretty girl, and i sure am glad to hear she is so loved.

Wow! You just keep going and going! Another dog rescued, and nursed back to full health. Sadie was very lucky, believe it or not to be hit by that car. Or else, she probably never would have been saved by your compassionate family. Although, it still is pretty sad that she almost gave her heart up. Sadie is a very pretty canine! Check out my dogs and please comment on them. Thanks! :)♥ ♥ :)

My 4 1/2 month old puppy Remy's mom was an adoptee from a reservation as well. Her owners adopted her from the shelter and two weeks later Remy along with her 8 brothers and sisters were born! (although three vets confirmed she was spayed, she got pregnant before leaving the reservation) Your Sadie is a gorgeous sweet girl!

Thanks for rescuing beautiful Sadie, and saving not only her life, but the lives of her pups. She was very fortunate to have been found by you.

You need to hang on a sign on your front door....."Great Dog People Live Here" Imagin e if more people like you exisited in this world rather than the ones who abandon...every dog would have a loving home!!!!!

She's very sweet, and looks very happy now! She is really lucky to have survived the head injury she must've gotten from the car. As quilla said, make a sign saying "Great Dog People Live Here", maybe the dogs will start piling up at your door. :-P Lol, it's nice that you save the dogs :-D
