The following day as she was being fostered by a RCHS board member, Bill, she became very sick. It turned out she had parvo. She spent the next week fighting for her life. Unable to eat, she was kept alive at the vet's office through IV's.
The Robeson County Humane Society, a no-kill facility, was committed to getting her the best medical care possible. And when she was able to be released from the veterinary hospital, she returned to the board member's home to foster.
She is just 10 pounds and a sack of bones and the sweetest thing you ever saw. She was listed as a Jack Russell mix but if you could see her paws and the way she stands, you'd know she has Basset Hound in her. So we're calling her a Jack Bassett.
Eddie is another rescue from the Robeson County Humane Society. He had been shot in the leg, rescued by the Humane Society, and adopted by my family. We had his leg reconstructed with a metal plate and he's doing great.
Lucy also joins our collie, our third rescue from the Robeson County Humane Society, and a foxhound, who we adopted from the Richmond (VA) SPCA along with her brother Skipper, who passed away about a year and a half ago.
I think Lucy knows she's home.
Happy Weekend, everybody!
