She will also have top notch veterinary care from the folks at Breckinridge Park Animal Hospital. Once she recovers and gains weight and is healthy we will place her up for adoption in the Dallas, TX area. Please donate towards the care of Olive and others like her via this razoo link, we are a 501c3 and will send you a tax receipt. Thanks for your support! http://www.razoo.com/story
Olive is anemic and also has a bad care of worms so she's being treated for those things. We're also feeding her special food from the vet and her awesome foster mom Jenny has been cooking a lot of chicken and rice (Olive's favorite foods)!

On Nov 11, Olive moved in with her loving foster mom Jenny and is fitting right in with her other dogs and is enjoying being spoiled rotten. The best part is Olive even has her own facebook page so we hope you'll join it so you can follow the progress of this remarkable little dog who has captured the heart of everyone that's met her or even heard her story!

Updates from Jenny:
Olive day 1. Not sure where to begin. This is the most beautiful, fragile, gentle creature. She is weak. Walking better than in the original video, but tires quickly. Her appetite is good naturally. The pictures of her are frightening, but I wasn't prepared for how horrifying she is to the touch. Every rib, every bone, even her tail, you can feel every bit of cartilage. I'm carrying her most of the time it seems. She came to work with me today and boy was she the most popular girl in the building. She loved everyone she met. And everyone loved her too. A handful of people cried when they saw her. Literally cried. Poor Jackie cried for about 45 minutes. She loves her new bed and her new "jacket" for warmth, and padding more importantly. We had a successful meeting with the rest of the family this afternoon. Everyone sensed her fragility and after sniffs, they gave her space. Smart dogs. Tonight after dinner, we curl up on the sofa by the fire and hunker down and cuddle. Miss Olive had a big day, I think she's worn out. Tonight with a full belly, safe and warm she will dream happy puppy things. And tomorrow...another day closer to full health and a wonderful life.

Olive Day 3...From Mom...The little black dog is doing really well. She's eating like a champ. Chicken and rice mixed with wet and dry food from the vet and a little water are not making anything worse. And have mercy, she loves her chicken! She's motoring around the yard and has navigated the deck pretty well. She's had a very busy day at the park, and visiting with Shannon. She's currently lounging in her squishy bed...looks like she's contemplating a nap. She never lets me out of her sight and follows me everywhere, constantly under foot. No accidents in the house today. If it's possible, she gets sweeter every minute. And her personality is starting to come to light. This is an amazing little dog, with an amazing little spirit.
