I picked her up at 6.

She was very happy to see me.

People suck.

This picture is from when I fostered her the first time.

She now has no hair. They let her get eaten alive by fleas. But, she has lost a lot of weight (a good thing, she was morbidly obese. She still is, but much better).

She has a bad limp. Hope it's not osteo. Now that she's lost some weight, I feel lots of tumors, including mammary (even though she was spayed years ago).

So, we'll see.

Sorry things didn't work out for Ivy. I'm glad she is back in good hands now. I'm sure the right situation will come for this beautiful girl soon.

Poor darling. I hope all her problems go away now that you have her back.

You're right some people do suck, but then there are the good ones out there who only want what is best for the animals - like you!

Poor Ivy! I'm happy that she's back in your care for now, although it's unfortunate that it didn't work out with her new family. What happened with her new family?

Oh Jenna, I am so sorry to hear this. How did you find out she needed to come back to you? I know that you will nurse her back to health and find her a great furever home. Poor baby, she is so lucky to have you as her guardian angel. Please keep us updated on her.

I HATE it when people "rescue" a dog and then treat them like that!!!!
Makes me so angry!!!!!

Poor Ivy!!!! So glad you have her back, Jenna!

GRRIN has had a few returns and we ALWAYS want them returned rather than abused, neglected or taken to a shelter or dumped but GEESH, people don't "rescue" a dog if you aren't going to love and cherish them!

I suspect they were dishonest with me about their financial situation. I don't think they beat her or anything, but they definitely did not take care of her properly. I don't get burned often, but it does happen. Sometimes people have the best of intentions, too. The good thing is, they called me. I had been asking about her every week or two, as well. But they contacted me out of the blue yesterday and asked if I could take her back.

She is definitely so happy now! We're going to the vet Friday (Brook too) and I will keep you all posted.

Well I am glad Ivy is with you now! She just looks so darn sweet! I hope the vet visit goes well. Did she have a limp before you adopted her out or is this new?

Yes - it is good they contacted you instead of doing something bad with her.

I hope she and
Brooklyn both get a good review at the vet's.
