Millie is a super-cute, 4-year-old retriever mix with the very best smile! Millie caught our eye when the local shelter shared her story. She was found running down the street with a carabiner embedded in her neck. She was infested with ticks and emaciated. It was clear this girl had a VERY hard life so far. They actually guessed that she was a senior dog, from just looking at her. We went to the shelter expecting to pick up a very old dog, and were surprised by the spring in her step. Closer examination revealed that she was only about four years old! She was missing fur, her canine teeth were broken off, she was covered in scabs, and her ribs showed. It appeared she had been chained and neglected for a long time, and there was evidence she probably spent much of her life laying on the pavement. But, wow, the dog under that sad exterior? Nervous, yes, but just at first.. in no time, she was ASKING for attention. Loving to be petted, and when you stop, sometimes she gives you her paw as a HINT to give her some more love. She's loving to sit on comfy sofas and dog beds. Loving to eat all the yummy food now being offered to her. She's being treated like a dog should, and she's THRIVING. Did we mention her smile? Imperfect, yes. She has a bit of an underbite, you see. But it's a million-dollar smile and is contagious! Millie does great with other dogs. She plays well with dogs of all sizes! In her foster home, she's chased the cat a few times but isn't aggressive. She's gentle & sweet with people. She's still recovering from her years of neglect, but we bet she'll be the picture of health in no time.
