Thorp Dog Auction Scrapbook: Precious Lady

Previous -- Next

Precious Lady, a golden lab, was sold as pregnant. She was just morbidly obese.

     Most people think of mill dogs as being mainly the smaller breeds. Precious Lady, a battle-scarred yellow lab, would like to say, she knows from first-hand experience that this is not the case.

     Precious Lady was sold as pregnant -- in fact, the auctioneer pronounced her "Ready to deliver any day now!" Lady was NOT pregnant, just "morbidly obese." Wouldn't you think these "breeders" would be able to tell?

     When Precious Lady was first rescued, she would lie down flat whenever anyone approached, as if she was trying to disappear. She was terrified of hands and feet and cringed if one came her way -- it was eight weeks before she would even take a piece of cheeseburger from a human hand!

       She is now in an extremely loving an gentle home where she is being given all the time she needs to become the dog she was always meant to be...sweet and loving...and loved.
