Sweetie was living on a large property with around 20 other adult dogs in Southern Ohio. The family that owned them had a big heart taking in strays. Their neighbor’s did not like the dogs and started running over the dogs if they saw them near the road and shooting them. Sweetie had just had puppies and was shot. The family who owned her called a rescue group in the area and asked for assistance. Sweetie is being treated for her broken leg as a result of the gun shot and will soon have the bullet removed that is lodged in her leg. Sweetie is playful and loves her dog bed. She does not have any interest in toys, we believe she may have never had any. She can be ball of energy, since the bullet has been removed she still periodically limps. But that doesn’t slow her down.
