Puppy rescued from dumpster wags her tail!

Posted by foreverhomepetrescue on July 18, 2008

Last week I got a call from a previous adopter that she was involved in rescuing a puppy from a dumpster (along with about 50 employees of the company!) and wanted my advice as to what to do if/when they caught the puppy…. of course I said, “call me and I’ll come get her”…. so they caught her, and I picked her up.

She was FILTHY, skinny, covered in fleas and ticks… and SUPER scared. She shook violently and growled at anyone who came near her. She even bit several of her rescuers.

She was very young for such fear – she must have been thru hell. Poor little thing. Within a couple of hours I was able to touch her – she ate well and spent two days sleeping off her nightmare. After two days I was able to (very carefully) give her a bath and deliver her to her new foster home.

She’s been at her foster home for two days – and is already bouncing and wagging. It will take some time for her to learn to trust people, but I trust these fosters to bring her out of her shell.

See link below for a video taken this morning – she’s a compleltely different puppy already!

Her name is Cici.
