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.
