Dear Sweet Sadie!
Sadie was an owner surrender.
Her back story was a relative picked her up from the street in Oklahoma and brought her to Florida to visit family and left Sadie. She had sores, bald spots, fleas, terrible breath and her eyes were lifeless.
Our volunteer Charlotte gave her sulfur baths every other day and although the entire house would smell like rotten eggs, the baths were soothing and healing. Parasites gone, lumps removed and her coat growing back, this 12 year old gal had some skip in her step.
Charlotte drove her to Griffin, Georgia to meet a couple who wanted to adopt her. They met at a hotel parking lot that had a very small dog park.
Charlotte recalls the wife looking at her husband saying are you sure you want THIS dog. Charlotte will never forget, he smiled and said, “Absolutely, she’s my little princess.”
The couple adopted Saide, and over time Charlotte received pictures of Sadie lounging in deck chairs, sleeping with her fur brother and being loved.
Sadie lived another year and a half and her picture still makes us smile because her last days were so good for her.
