(SRC#1817) Meg's Story
Meg with this unique identification number: (SRC#1817) just came into our custody and care. Now vetted this dog will be prepared for adoption by a foster family who has gone thru our approval process. She is between 5 and 6 years old and weighs 13 pounds.
The Shih Tzus who came in with this recent group of rescues amazed me as the Director of this Rescue with their passive demeanors. I was fortunate enough to handle each one by picking them up, bathing them all and getting them to the vet for their medical care. All of this breed were so passive and sweet -- they just let you do anything to them with no aggression whatsoever almost as if they had given up completely. Once they were vetted I found out more about why they seemed so very docile. Blackie now being called MEG is food driven which tells me she has had to fight for her meals. While she was with me I fed her white meat chicken and quickly she came to believe that the sun rose and set wherever I was and she followed me everywhere. I loved it!! I came to really love HER! How forgiving can these precious ones be??? She had Grade 4 Dental disease and real food gave her diarrhea (cleared up with meds). She had an ear issue from allergy and also had to be spayed although she has just given birth. She loves having her ears scratched and is already housebroken just from being praised for going out when she “potties”. I heard her bark only once and that little tails goes constantly even when she is in pain. She was hurting terribly one night right after her dental and spay so about 2am so I got up with her and took her out to potty then rocked her until the pain meds took hold again. Then she slept very nicely in her bed until 7am the next morning. I was so proud of that little angel who has already suffered so much. She has really earned her honorary Schnauzer status. Thankfully Blackie now being called MEG (1817) was fortunate enough to be be rescued by SRC and at her age she can live a long healthy life now and a happy one! This dear girl deserves that and much more! She has gone to her foster home in South Carolina a few days ago and this is what her foster mom has to say about her already:
"She is doing great!!! Has her spot in the yard!! Meg is sleeping just fine! I have 5 in the bedroom so she fits right in! LOL! She has a pink crate, new collar and a bed in her crate! She is only outside when I am and comes running when I call her! I will keep you posted! So far she just eats from her own plate! Will posted more later. My senior schnauzer loves her!! Jackie"
Now ready for adoption this dog has been heart-worm tested (negative), vaccinations brought up to date, spayed, micro-chipped, examined fully by a vet and any necessary medical issues found by this vet will have been addressed. It is anticipated that this dog will be released for adoption by the same date as the completion of the Evaluation. The date of release is left to the discretion of the SRC Core Team.

Tax-deductible donation requested at time of adoption for this dog is $ 375 .
When ready for adoption this canine will also have been evaluated for two weeks by loving SRC foster parents who will be able to give the adoptive parents information as to their opinion about the demeanor of the adoptive parent's new family companion prior to the finalizing of this adoption. SRC volunteers strive to do all of this for the well-being of their rescued canine and for a successful. It is our worthy mission to assure that each dog goes to a loving and stable home whose family members will treat each rescued dog that SRC helps as a beloved member of their immediate family.
