I see dogs every single day on the side of the road. Mostly living, sometimes not. These dogs (many are hunting dogs left at the end of the season) travel along the mosquito infested roadside ditches and live in nearby woods. What I have done since I moved here a year ago, is take the mamas and the babies in, and then after getting them fed well, they get fixed, and all their shots, and treated for anything they need. I also leave food for the male dogs, most of them don't let you come near them. So far, all of the mamas have had heartworm disease, and I have treated them for it. After they all have a clean bill of health, I get them adopted out. The puppies so far have been all perfectly healthy. Wormy at first, of course, but after that, they are wonderful, smart little doggies. They had to be smart, to have been born in the wild, and usually left behind by the moms. All the adopting parents have kept in touch with me, to send me pics, and tell me how easy it was for them to train them. So far, I have rescued 12 dogs in the last year. These dogs make the best pets. They are so grateful for the love people now give them. I still wonder daily, how do these people just drive by them? But they do, every day.
