We adopted AbbyDog (officially Abbicus Finch) 6 years ago as a 5 month old puppy. We learned that Abby had originally been rescued by a woman that heard about Abby's litter being left on the side of a highway ... a radio announcer mentioned the story on air. Abby was very sick. Her original rescuer spent over $1000 (I have the vet records). Abby's original rescuer developed breast cancer and was not able to take care of Abby and had to take her to a shelter. That is when we found Abby. Through the vet records, I found her original rescuer's address and sent her photos and an update on Abby. Since then, for the last 6 years, we have exchanged Christmas cards, letters and photos. We got her card today!
