Bailey’s luck began when her house was raided. As the rescuers stepped into the hoarder’s house they were appalled. All the bedrooms were stuffed with bedraggled little Poodles living in filthy conditions. Some of these little ones had lived all their sad lives in those rooms. Dogs were everywhere, crying and barking, scared and excited too. As the rescuers stepped over the grimy floors covered with layers of feces they found Bailey lying among many other dogs. The rescuer told us that while Bailey appeared to be in poor condition, her tail never stopped wagging as her rescuer carried her out of the house.
This was the first time that Bailey along with many other dogs had ever stepped outside. It was like a whole new world. The rescue agency saved so many dogs that day that they needed some help. We were contacted about Bailey and immediately set up a time for them to bring her to the Center.
When Bailey came to us all you could see was matted fur and a fiercely wagging tail. As our medical team examined her, they found that besides her severely matted fur, she was missing teeth and had giardia. Because of the condition of her coat, there was no other option but to shave her. As the veterinarian examined Bailey after she was shaved, she discovered a pleasant surprise. Not only had Bailey’s life been saved, but the lives of her unborn puppies had been saved too. She was pregnant and nobody had even known.
Bailey and her three pups have all been adopted to forever families. Bailey is one of the lucky ones that get to live out her happily ever after in the real world, with air and sunshine and happy smells and activity. She will now be loved as an individual, unique soul.
