We recently rescued a bruised and scarred 1½ year old female dog from the Pound Buddies Animal Shelter & Adoption Center in Muskegon. They do wonderful work with abused and abandoned animals. We have renamed her Chella!
She was at first very timid with her tail tucked under, her eyes showed the fear of being around us, her body trembled even as we showed her love and a safe haven. Even refusing to eat or drink, we were encouraged when she started accepting some dog treats.
