    About two weeks ago we first noticed her. She was down by road in front of our house. Since then we've tried to catch her a couple of times but she barked at us and growled at us and took off running. So I started putting food down the driveway by the culvert I was sure she was living under. I guess today got the better of her. It's been storming here all day and she finally came on porch, shivering uncontrollably. We were finally able to catch her though she was charging at us and barking and growling and looking like a rapid dog. Got her in the house and she instantly became a changed dog. Started licking our faces and wagging tail. She was covered in huge ticks but is now all cleaned up and living inside and following us around and begging to be picked up and held.

    We've named her Prissy.

    Isn't it just so sad that someone would dump a precious dog like this. Sad thing is that I know this won't be the first since we live in the country and we've been warned that everyone will dump their animals here.

    She is such a sweetie. I can't believe this is the same dog that has held us a bay for two weeks. She's skin and bones and I've had to apply neosporin to her tick wounds but otherwise she looks so healthy and happy to be inside.

    Thank you so much for rescuing her!

    I have a Miniature Pinscher named Roxy. She is the best dog I have ever had.

    Are you going to keep her? Trust me, you wont regret it. Miniature PInschers are such loveable dogs.

    What a cutie pie! That was one of the breeds we'd considered when getting another dog. We didn't because they are said to have super duper high energy. I hope it's simply a case of her getting out and lost and not that she was abandoned. I know there are lots in shelters, though b/c people don't do research before getting one and then get overwhelmed with their...ummm...enthusiasticly...spastic [​IMG] personalities.
