My Rescue Abby - Then and Now

Hi everyone, as my little girl's 2nd birthday approached I got to looking back to her time with me. A short backstory, she came to me as rescue from a foster who is a good friend of mine. She was malnourished and skittish of everything. Although she is still very scared, she is miles better now. I am unsure of her age or level of "pure" but I designated December 18th as her birthday since I got her on this day, I have had her a little over a year now. Some pictures to share Sorry for the quality but notice how thin she is in the first couple, the rest are recent.

You both did exceptionally well. Abby, who found herself a great family to get her back in tiptop shape and you who got yourself a beautiful and darling girl. Happy belated birthday and gotcha day to Abby.

Happy Birthday Abby and you are one beautiful girl. Her face is so wise, so full of love.

She looks so good now, slim and in really good shape from her skinny pictures before. You did a wonderful thing AbbysDaddy! She looks so happy.

Rescues are such a heartwarming win/win for the dogs ... and the people who get their abiding love for years to come

Abby

I am so very GLAD that you and Abby found one another! What a beautiful girl she is and I am sure she would THANK YOU if she could!
Female Goldens are the SWEETEST!!! I had a female Golden, named Smooch, who was a 16 month old rescue! She's at the Rainbow Bridge now, but I think of her everyday! Please give Abby some kisses for me!

Happy 2nd Birthday and Happy Gotcha Day to your beautiful Abby.

Thank you for taking this beautiful sweet girl into your home. I know you realize how lucky you are and how special she is. To experience seeing them blossom is a truly wonderful amazing gift.

Both of my Goldens are Rescues, I quickly learned how special they are and how lucky I am to share my life with them.
