The furry twosome had become fixtures at the local Dollar General store in town.  Everyone in town had seen them; tried to befriend them, or shoo'd them away when they came slinking around for crumbs...two lost, lonesome hounds, with no home, no shelter, no love and living on the scraps of kind strangers.

"Dollar" and "Sawyer" were young, but one could tell by looking at their thin frame and sunken bellies they had seen neglect during their short little lives.  No one knew what brought them here, back in the early days of Spring, but like wayward gypsies, these vagabonds made the parking lot their home.

Volunteers tried to capture them over the past few months, but these two were scared and timid.  Hunger brought them close enough to grab pieces of food, but fear held them back from a human touch.  Thanks to the daily vigil of one wonderful mother and daughter team, the two little creatures were able to make it through a stormy spring, a sweltering summer and the beginnings of a hard winter.  Tirelessly, this duo made sure there was food in their bellies and fresh water--every single day.

One lucky afternoon, with the help of volunteers from the Giles County Humane Association, the two were finally captured and taken in for assessment.  Dollar will be having puppies in a couple weeks.  She appears to be somewhat healthy, still thin, but will be ok with some therapy and nutritional diet.  Sawyer, appears to have been hit by a car.  She does have an injury to her hip, and will undergo evaluation to determine if surgery will be necessary.

Once both are released they will immediately go into Foster care with the Mom and Daughter duo who so selflessly cared for them despite so many obstacles.  They will stay with the family while rehabbing and will work on  rebuilding that bridge of trust before they will be ready for Adoption and into their hopeful Forever Homes.

Please share Dollar and Sawyer's story and let's make sure they are healthy, happy in a warm home for the holidays.  If you would like to meet these two angels, please contact us at 931-363-5455.
