|Sheldon's ready for his first Christmas|
On Dec 9, 2011, we received a plea for help for a homeless momma dog that had recently given birth to puppies in an industrial area of Dallas. The temps were in the 30s so JP and I went out to rescue them as soon as possible.
Around 8pm, we found a stairwell covered in blankets. JP carefully sifted through them and then found the mom tucked up against the wall. She had somewhat dug herself into the ground to try to keep her babies and herself warm.
Normally a dog's "flight" response kicks in but she just froze. She was trembling, probably from cold and fear. JP carefully slipped the leash over her head and we were able to take Momma and her 2 babies home.
We've named the momma dog Maya. She is absolutely beautiful and has such soulful eyes. We named the puppies Leonard & Sheldon, they are fat and happy! And yes, they are named after our favorite characters in the tv show The Big Bang Theory!
Maya is heartworm positive. Treatment to get her healthy again costs hundreds of dollars so we're hoping you will donate towards the care of this little family via this razoo link: http://www.razoo.com/story/Saving-Maya-And-Her-Puppies
We are a 501c3 and will send you a tax receipt. Thank you for your ongoing support. Because of your help Maya, Leonard and Sheldon are now warm, fed, safe and on their way to a much better life!
