ERIN'S story:

Erin was picked up as a stray along with Sargent and brought to Pasco County Animal Services. GGARR received a rescue plea for Sargent and Erin as both dogs were emiciated and Sargent had numerous wounds. GGARR placed a rescue hold on them after receiving pictures and information on their condition.

Uli and Dave Wilson and I went to the shelter to evaluate them and get better pictures.

Sargent, despite his rough appearance and painful limp, approached everyone looking for treats. He poured on the charm despite being in obvious pain and gently accepted treats and attention from all of us.
We spent a fair amount of time with him (please visit his page also) and then asked to see the tiny, timid female.

And this is where her story begins. She was so afraid, that the shelter volunteer had to carry her out to the visiting area. Her hip bones were clearly visible as she sniffed around, shying away from any contact. After a while, she would very cautiously take treats and then retreat. It took canned food, patience and two shelter staff members to gain her interest long enough to get a slip lead back on her. Once on a lead, I approached her slowly, with treats in hand, and she allowed me to rub her neck and scratch her back. She quietly allowed a simple gesture of affection despite her fear. And I was smitten.

We picked her up yesterday and she is at our home as our first foster where she will be given time to decompress and gain both weight and trust. She was absolutely terrified on the ride and let us suffice to say that I am glad that Mark bought me a good quality cargo mat for the back of the truck. 

She is extremely timid and is easily startled. If she hears a loud noise, she will look for an escape route and will attempt to bite through a leash to do so. She is just beginning to play and seems to do well with a well behaved female dog. It is unknown how she will be with cats.

ERIN will be available for adoption soon. Please, fill out an adoption application and be approved to adopt her.
