ADOPTED 12-12-12 Update from Judy’s foster Mom — Judy is a real sweetheart, very lovable with lots of energy. She gets along very well with the other three dogs in the house and she kisses the two cats. She gets along well with children, adults, other dogs and cats. We think that Judy may be younger than 5 years old but we would need to verify that with a vet.
It takes lots of work to heal the bodies of our rescue dogs; they have suffered so much from neglect and abuse. The emotional scars that they carry are everlasting; the fosters hearts go out to the dogs in their care and forever leave an everlasting imprint of their story with the fosters and their families. We are truly blessed with wonderful volunteers who carry these dogs–every step of the way. This is one of those heartfelt American rescue stories; it is filled with love and kindness, hardship and worry and heroes that give with their hearts.
Judy came to her foster mom very sick and near death; it has been a long road back for her but her vigor for life is what has helped her recovery. Judy’s southern foster commitment and dedication never wavered; she made many personal sacrifices to give sweet Judy the very best care. She told us that the first two weeks of having Judy in her home, she constantly watched her every move, that on some days she had to make three trips to the vet because Judy was so sick. You see her mom was very worried because she knew that at any moment the decision to put her down was being considered and she refused to give up on her.
Judy did have some good days and many bad days. Usually her bad days would last no more than a day or two. If she would feel good enough, she would usually end up playing a little too long and got tired. There were many times that she paid for it the next day, so she just laid around and did not feel like doing anything else. Judy also had heartworms and it took its toll on her. She didn’t have much energy at all until after her first heartworm treatment and was down for two days afterwords; it was very very hard for her foster mom to watch her struggle again. Finally, after she finished the treatment, she began to act like a completely different dog.

Judy’s mom thinks that she had felt bad for a long time and when she had the Heartworm treatment it at last gave her some relief. When she started feeling good it was hard to get her to rest because she was so happy and excited. Mom reports that she is now a complete different dog from that first day she came to her; her energy level and playing has greatly improved. Just to watch her keep pushing herself to survive and bounce back was absolutely amazing. Everyone in the south just kept working together and it paid off because she is a healthy happy beautiful very loving dog.

Rescue dogs have a way of telling us their story with their behavior; she is a little afraid of thunder and we are working with her on that. It has been our experience, that some dogs that have lived outside before they were rescued have developed this condition. In time and with a little guidance, she will conquer it, we have a few techniques and exercises that we use and have been very successful with helping our dogs.
Any Terrier breed will always display certain personality elements. In Judy’s case, many of those elements are present and clearly visible.
