Tammie and her Concrete block

Tammie is our newest arrival to Budadogs and we welcome her with open arms! She is a young, retriever mix, approximately 12 months old, and has lived on a short chain tied to a concrete cylinder ever since she was a young puppy and she has never been off this chain. Despite Tammie`s restricted life she has kept her spirits up and we are glad we could help her before she continued the all too short life which originally was planned for her. Her owner`s intention was to give her to the dog-catcher who would take her to be put to sleep. Tammie was never given a name. She suffered the consequence all too familiar when litters are born in the neighbourhood and was simply tied up as a young puppy and left there day in, day out. Food and water is the extent of her care, her concrete cylinder providing her with shelter from the rain and cold.
Tammie is going into fostering with a wonderful couple who have helped us a great deal, and we look forward to getting to know her better.

Angie... little Angel

Angie at the site where she had been abandoned

Angie became a Budadog today. She was found tied to a chain alone, left to starve to death. The malnourishment and helplessness is more than apparent and I am speechless and appalled.
I surrender myself to the truth in the saying of a picture speaking a thousand words....

The approach of strangers was obviously traumatic

no food... no water... no people.... nothing

Tied up and helpless... Angie wasn`t even given a chance to fend for herself....

Carefully saying Hello

Angie was immediately taken off the chain and into safety

Her eyes speak of distrust but also hope...

with a mild and forgiving expression

Angie begins to explore the first hours of her new life

Quite soon this girl will be unrecognizable... And she will have forgotten the hunger, fear and agony which once was inflicted upon her... Their ability to live in the present is one of the magical aspects of our work. And any time I doubt the purpose or fruitfulness of our endeavours I need only glance into the eyes of a girl like Angie... and it all makes a bit more sense.

She is a quiet, but sweet girl and we can`t wait to help her get her strength and vitality back, teaching her that life can be good and filled with love.
