Description:

Heidi is a precious petite girl who came into rescue at age 6-7 in 2006. She has been a forever foster in the home of Jeff and Janice for many loving years! Heidi is a sweet but shy girl who loves her family. She came from an abusive breeding situation so this is the only real HOME she has ever known. She fully expects to be here forever and ATDR understands her need for security and supports her as a forever foster! Won't you help sponsor Heidi and help with her longterm care?

Here's her story...

My name is Heidi. I am a very very very tiny 19-year-old lady, and I would like nothing more than to be sponsored by you!

About 13 years ago, I was in a horrible, nasty place. I was one of the dogs rescued from the Comanche County puppy mill. When I was rescued I was very pregnant. Shortly after rescue, I was taken to the Emergency Clinic very sick. I had to stay for the weekend, getting IV fluids and calcium. Three days later, I went into labor. The puppies were stressed and my foster mom and dad had to rush me to the Emergency Clinic. There, I delivered 5 tiny puppies...one was stillborn and one lived another 12 hours. The three remaining puppies were adopted out and are doing fine in their forever homes.  

I had been so mistreated at the puppymill, that I had severe trust/like issues concerning humans. I lived 18 months under my foster mom's bed. I would come out to tinkle on the peepee pads and run back under the bed. Mom and dad fed and watered me under there too. One day I thought I would see what it was like to be like the other dogs, and get on the bed. At first I slept on the opposite corner from the human. Then I started inching closer and closer to her. One day I snuck under the covers and slept next to her. AHHHHHHHHHHHH! I learned to love and trust that human. Mom had a friend I really liked too. Whenever Miss Kim would come over, I would run out to see her, and run back under the bed. Kim was my second friend.  

I was still leary of my daddy, until one night Mom was at work and I was home alone with Daddy. There came a HUGE thunder storm and I don't like thunder. I ran from under the bed, to the couch where Daddy was watching TV, and I begged to be picked up. Daddy was so happy he cried. I slept close to Daddy all night...and I felt safe!  

Once I started coming out from under the bed, Mom took me on trips to see her daddy. There I learned to trust someone else. I have since learned to trust others and am the queen of the house. I go to sleep every night in my momma's arms or right next to her.  

I thank everyone who had a hand in my rescue. Without you and my foster parents, I wouldn't be here to say THANK YOU!!! I am doing well and thriving in my foster home.

If you would like to sponsor me, I would appreciate it so much...
