Special PhotoRegan was found abandoned in a shed with remnant insulation everywhere. Seeking a safe dry place to have her babies, this mama dog made a nest in the fiberglass insulation and gave birth. A lady found her and began feeding her, although she was clearly nervous and growled a bit, she never offered to be aggressive to the hand that was feeding her. A plea went out to the rescues to take this mama and her four puppies. Heartsong knew that if the puppies opened their eyes while in the insulation, they could have permanent eye issues, or even blindness. We took in the mama dog with no history, but with a heart to save these lives. The mama turned out to be heartworm positive, and has a severely broken leg. Even with all that, she is a wonderful mother. She has come out of her shell, and now gently takes treats from her foster mom's hand. Regan will go through heartworm treatment and have her leg repaired when the puppies are weaned. These gorgeous babies will be available for adoption sometime in March. Heartsong offers adoptions at their clinic at 421 Belair Road on Mon Tues Thurs and Fri from 9 AM - 5:30 PM. Heartsong is at PetSmart every Saturday from 11 - 4 and an occassional Sunday. For more information call 706-860-9300 or 706-855-1241.
