rescued from an auction at age 4-1/2. She
had spent her entire life in a Mill.
adventure into freedom had just begun.
There was a new home waiting and eager to
get her, but first she had to have medical
attention and be spayed.
This was all set up when Carlie came
into heat – and that threw a spanner (wrench)
in the works…
Eventually it all worked out and Carlie was
ready to go to her forever home, but it was
quite a distance to transport her.
Never being ones to be daunted, our
placement person, Jacolyn, delved into
various options and discovered PilotsNPaws
– a wonderful group of people who are
friends of Breed Rescue all over the States
and who flew private planes!
Arrangements were made to transport Carlie
to her new home this way – what a change
for her, going from the squalor of a mill to
her own private air transportation.
She was getting used to the “good
life” with a vengeance…
All of this good living was a challenge for
Carlie to get used to – and it must have
been hard on her to start with, but she
quickly realised her change of fortune and
adapted with speed.
She learned to walk on a leash the
second day she was in her new home, it took
her only a week to accept treats from a hand,
but her house training took a little longer!
She is now living happily with Shirley –
her devoted owner – getting fed regularly,
going for daily walks, playing with toys
and, even better, playing with her doggie
friend Sammie, who although the first
resident, welcomed Carlie with open paws..
