On the day Lynn arrived in California, she was walking on a trail when she noticed a small animal hiding in the bushes. It was Jules, scrunched up and trembling, looking emaciated and terrified. As Lynn reached for her, Jules ran off in fear.
Lynn tucked her into her arms and took her to a local vet to be checked. Other than an ear infection and being underweight, the vet reported she seemed okay.
Lynn was able to find the owners after a Facebook lost and found search. It turned out Jule’s Fur-Mom had dementia and wasn’t taking care of her, so the family had decided to take the pup to the shelter where she would likely be euthanized. Unfortunately, Jules ran away from the shelter and had been missing for over a week. Lynn decided to keep Jules and bring her back to Maryland with her.
On the long road trip back, Jules became quite sick and they stopped at a vet in Missouri. That vet thought that the little pup may have cancer but further tests were needed. After getting some medication for her sick tummy, they continued on their journey and Jules became Lynn’s shadow.
Arriving back in Maryland meant Jules needed another placement as Lynn’s large reactive dog would not be a safe placement for this timid senior. That’s when Lynn contacted HWAH. We were happy to reach out to our partner rescues to find a foster home for Jules and eventually for her to be adopted.
HOWEVER, when Lynn brought Jules to HWAH, we realized it might not be in her best interest to move her again. She is a bit frail, has some health issues we are now working on, and is very worried and easily frightened.
