well this has been quite a weekend......... but a story needs to be told.
as some of you guyz know my mum and her mum, along with the airechicks mum, work with the NORTH TEXAS AIREDALE RESCUE, and this saturday my mums mum got a call from a couple who run an out of control airedale breeder. They have rescued airedales from him before, but he had decided this time to get rid of ALL of his breeding airedales....
the breeder also had about 20 chihuahuas in two seperate pens. The chihuahuas were crowded, dirty, flea infested, and most of them are probably heart worm positive
*we have some GOOD news though which i will mention later in the post*
another shot of the first chihuahua pen.
well my mum came with her mum and 3 other friends who help with airedale rescue. they ended saving 5 airedales CHICO, the only male, CHEYENNE,a very shy girl,NINA, a outgoing female,DILLY,small timid female, and BELLE, an extremely scared female.
as i promised i has some rather good news after this incredibly sad news. As you saw there were MANY chihuahuas but my mum couldnt just walk away. it took negotiation just to be able to save these 5 airedales but my mum also managed to save a little chihuahua girl......
the feel of a bath was probably completley new but she handeled it very well and i know it must have felt so good to have all those fleas off and finally be clean.
after ivy was dry she came inside , she and i didnt meet officially but i hope we can become good friends. ivy got to lay down in a my mums mums old baby doll bed and it fit her perfectly.
my mum says that while she is fostering little ivy girl that it will be through hillcrest animal rescue, so today my mum took ivy girl to a hillcrest adopt-athon at petsmart. she got to meet new people and handeled it all very well and lots of people were already interested in her. but ivy girl will have to be all rid of her worms before she is adoptable.
again my mum is so greatful that she was able to rescue this girl and the airedales and you can contact the AIRECHICKS if you have any questions on donations for these dogs or questions about hillcrest and airedale rescue.
