I was telling a friend Sadie’s story and I realized that she is just as fierce as I am, just as much of a warrior... perhaps more so than I could ever be. • Sadie was abandoned alongside a highway in the middle of winter; she was only around 7 months old. When she arrived at the shelter, she had a bad case of demodectic mange that did not go away until several months after she came home with me (including a period of fresh lesions that were heartbreaking to tend to). There is scarring on her right cheek (from a porcupine or other animal perhaps), there is significant scarring on the inside of both of her hocks, and she doesn’t have one of her adult teeth for no known reason (perhaps due to physical abuse). She was also very underweight. • When I adopted her in March, at 10 months old, Sadie demonstrated many apparent PTSD symptoms. Quick to cower, rarely vocalized her needs, did not wag her tail much, reacted strongly (and negatively) to Jarrod, reacted strongly to loud noises, was limited in her knowledge of play. She also had no concept of cuddling (though probably due to the discomfort of the mange and then the regrowth of fur). She was almost completely housebroken and knew a lot of basic commands. • Now, her demodex is completely gone. She has learned to cuddle. Jarrod worked with her to become a “fun person” and is now her second favorite. She sleeps with me every night, has begun to vocalize more, and now wags her tail almost all the time. She still has some scarred and bare patches from the mange, but she is the happiest dog I’ve ever met. She loves everyone and everything, and the depth of her love and joy is amazing to see. • I can’t believe she’s been a part of my life for only 8 months. I love her so much. The happiest parts of my day are when I get to snuggle with her. As I type this, she’s flopped next to me, sleeping. I didn’t know it was possible to love an animal this much. • I say that I rescued her... but really, she saved me. • #dogsofinstagram #labradormix #rescueddogsofinstagram #rescueddogs #muttsofinstagram #muttskickbutt #theadventuresofsadieandapril #rescuestory #adoption #adopteddog #myrescuerescuedme
SCORE!!!! This grain free kibble from BilJac is a great kibble- it dissolves very easy from my toothless guests. According to #petco Biljac was recently bought out meaning HUGE savings for me 💰💰💰🤗💰💰💰 #biljac #biljacdogfood #biljactreats #fosterlife

After all these months, Rosie is still in love with her @sodapupdogtoys Can Toy. I like to stuff it with a @traderjoes Beef Recipe Jerky Strip. It's the perfect size to get stuck, and the whole puzzle keeps her entertained for over an hour. #rosietheservicedog #servicedog #servicedogteam #servicedogsofinstagram #psychiatricservicedog #sdit #servicedogintraining #notalldisabilitiesarevisible #respectthevest #dog #dogstagram #dogsofig #dogsofinstaworld #dogsofinstagram #instadog #dogoftheday #dailyfluff #mutt #welovemutts #shelterdog #rescueddogsofinstagram #dogs

Mom, let’s have a chat. I smell other doggy kiddos on you. What did you do?? Well, I guess since we sponsored a shelter kiddo so she can have a loving home, I forgive you. 🐾😏 - - - #makeadifference #rescue #foster #adopt #sponsor #rescuerespectrepeat #happythanksgiving #adoptdontshop #rescueddogsofinstagram
Halp! Today are AGE Day and we hates it! And if you has to asks what AGE Day are... believes me, you’s rather not know. It involve a vet tech, a rubbers glove and a quick delve into a place where the sun don’t shine. Mama and papa say it gots to be done... no ifs, ands or butts! #AnalGlandExpressionDay #thanksbuttnothanks #joejoe
