She was forgotten. Her elderly owner went into a nursing home and a little Yorkshire Terrier mix was left alone to fend for herself for over a month. There were 12 dogs in the rural home all together, and none of them were spayed or neutered. SICSA was able to rescue 6 of the dogs: Winnie and her 5 puppies. A family member of the owner gave the other dogs to friends, neighbors and another rescue group.
Winnie’s physical condition was alarming. Her nails were so long that she could barely walk. She was covered in feces and urine. And her coat was matted together. It seemed she had been neglected for quite some time. Her transformation was recorded on video. She and her pups are doing well and will be available for adoption soon. You won’t believe how she looks today!
