Above Is My Dear Elsie. The shelter said she had been there the longest of any other dogs. She was so badly abused that her snout was slanted and she had a few teeth knocked out. I fell in love with her and brought her home only to find that she was riddled with anxiety. She was put on a behavior program, Prozac, Valium, and one another medicine. She was doing better when she developed an autoimmune disease that cause her to bleed spontaneously from the top of her head. I had to put her down after having her about six months. This dog shattered my heart for a very long time. I still cry when I think of her.
Above is Presh, also a rescue. She transitioned when she was about 12 years old. She was a very quiet dog who really needed very little from us. She was happy just to eat and sleep.
