Teddy at the pond - Copy.JPGTeddy was once confined in a high kill dog shelter. She had two BB’s in her left hip and her left hind leg was detached from its socket. Her fur was a matted dirty brown/grey color. She had a a history of running away. Still, when she looked at you and sensed she would not be hit, she’d smile. She was in search of a loving home and became part of our family a few years ago.

I was walking  her at night during  her first week with us. I tripped, stumbled and fell on the sidewalk…the leash slipped from my hand. Teddy, now off leash, could have escaped, instead, she licked my cheek. I like to think we rescued each other.
