Meet Grace. Grace is a warrior. She is an amazing, brave creature. She has suffered so much in her short life and has sacrificed for her babies and herself and now she is looking for the perfect forever home.
Foster mom has fostered over 300 dogs and Grace is truly the bravest dog she has ever fostered. She came into the rescue on a cold raining night in a Walmart parking lot where a good Samaritan found her
and her newborn litter of 6 puppies lying in a bed a glass. She was starving and sick with parasites and heartworms and anemia. She fought to stay alive and took care of her puppies and nursed them until
they were old enough to leave. That is when she went to her foster mom. She fostered her babies and helped them grow into big, fat, active, happy puppies who all got adopted, and then there was only
We cannot begin to express how sick and depressed Grace was. She had bald patches of hair, and her hair was dull and flaky. She was still severely anemic, and she was so thin and weak. From the very first
day Grace showed foster mom and everyone in the rescue that she was kind and loving and wanted her place at the table of life. She ate, she slept, eventually she played and ran. She went through
heartworm treatment without any outward signs of discomfort. She was a favorite at Ft Washington Vet Hospital where she was treated.
Grace is now chubby and healthy and so very sweet. She is wonderful with other dogs. She is housebroken and crate trained and sleeps on the bed (at the bottom usually). She loves her fenced yard and playing with her Border Collie foster sibling who is around her same age. She doesn’t really know toys, but she likes to chew on marrow bones and chicken feet and play with other dogs. She loves to snuggle and lie on the sofa.
Because of Grace’s past she gets nervous alone on walks and it seems she does worry that she will be abandoned again. She is a bit tentative in new situations and with new people and we are working on that.
She is not aggressive, but she is shy. Once she gets to know people, she is very friendly and happy.
It is breaking foster mom’s heart to let Grace go, but she knows that it’s time for her to create her new story with the perfect home that will love her unconditionally. Grace is very special, and we are looking
for a special family.
She is a Lab/Pit mix and probably weighs about 60 lbs. now. She is spayed and UTD on her shots. She is heartworm negative. She is about 2 or 3 years old. Grace is currently fostered in Conshohocken, PA and
her adoption fee is $400.00.
