Kelly's Pillows

Kelly’s Pillows

Kelly was purchased by her previous owner as a puppy and then tied outside for 3 years. The owner bred her, then left her to have her puppies outside, alone in the winter elements. The puppies all died of exposure. Eight weeks later, the owner dumped Kelly at a shelter and told them to have her put to sleep. The shelter workers walked her down the hall to have her PTS but she was such a happy girl that wagged her tail and gave everyone kisses that they just couldn’t euthanize her, so they called GSRNE. Kelly was loaded with whip worms, had a urinary tract infection, a uterine infection, a rotten tooth, frost bitten ears and to top it all off after she got into foster care, we found she had severe hip dysplasia in both hips. GSRNE’s Abby’s “Leg”acy Fund helped to pay for Kelly’s surgery.

Dad Loving Kelly

GSRNE was happy to be able to help this lovely girl to heal and after spending 6 months helping her through recovery we decided she was already home. Besides loving parents, Kelly lives with a number of other dogs to keep her company.

Because GSRNE fixed both of her hips, Kelly is able to run and take part in her favorite activity…chasing one of her balls!  When she is done, she is happy to find a nice soft blanket, with a pillow please, to lay down on. Kelly has been a foster sister to many, many of GSRNE’s adoptive dogs. She teaches them manners and shares her blankets, toys and home with them until they can find one of their own.
