Maleah Stringer: Looking under the shed to find Hope

Maleah Stringer

(Continued)

We went back to the shelter for reinforcements. This time I conned Veterinarian Claudia Smith, one of our volunteers, into helping. We also came back armed with a pack of wieners.

After lots more baby talk, and a whole pack of hot dogs, the dog drug her body out to us where we were able to get a leash on her and get her to the car. The first thing she did when she got out was lick my face.

We rushed her to Devonshire Veterinary Clinic where she had surgery to try and save her eye. Even in as much pain as she was in she at no time was vicious nor did she try to bite. We named her Hope. While feeding her hot dogs we hoped we could get her out without having to take a chainsaw to the shed. And we hoped that we can give her a better life than one of living under a shed.

Hope is a wonderful dog who deserves so much more than she has experienced in life so far. She will make someone a wonderful companion. If you need Hope and or her guard dog in your life please fill out an application to foster or adopt either or both.

Maleah Stringer is executive director of the Animal Protection League, 613 Dewey St., Anderson. She can be reached at 356-0900 or at maleahstringer@aol.com.
