About Betty Boop:
Sadly little Betty Boop delivered two babies in her cage at the shelter they were both dead when the staff came in with the sacs still on them. Betty Boop looks like a young dog and she just didn’t know how to take care of them and didn’t take the sacs off. The staff at the shelter looked in the blankets for any others but there were none to be found.
Charlene has picked her up and started on her way with her to meet Julia Downs who will then bring her up to us. Laura and I plan to meet her at the ER where the staff is waiting for her.
The pictures tell her story, they tell us all about what her life has been like, there is no joy here, there is no love here, there is only suffering and lots and lots of it.
Living on the streets with nothing an nobody to help her. Many people have asked about what the “valley” is in Texas.
The valley is way down in south Texas right along the border of Mexico. Dogs running the street down there are rampant, the majority of people living down there are very poor and feeding themselves and their families come way above caring one bit about a dog.
Fending for themselves is what they must do, and the shelters down there are loaded to the gills euthanizing hundreds and thousands of dogs on a regular basis.
Spaying and neutering is not commonplace and thus the puppies, the puppies and more puppies add to this crisis.
I wish this life on no dog and sadly Betty Boop is one of many, she just won the lottery and her life will absolutely never be the same.
I’m not sure what she is but I can tell that she is precious in there, she looks a little like a wire haired Dachshund in these photos but only time will tell.
She needs a ton of care and isolation to recover and thankfully we have a sanctuary that was built for dogs like her and Casper in mind..
