Thread: Our Girl Tori

  1. #1

    Default Our Girl Tori

    This is Tori.

    Sorry about coat as she was shedding alot.

    But her story is a sad one.
    She was imported from Wales to WA & went into a boarding come breeding kennel there. She was an indoor dog mostly untill a new baby came along & then she was put into the kennels down the back, poor girl, She went kennel mad & has hardley any teeth left & scars on her face from trying to get out. The owners became fearful of her as she develiped fear aggresion & also couldn't seem to get in pup so she was flown to another person in VIC. The Vic lady got her started on the road to recovery but had too many TM's of her own to keep Tori so she came to us.
    When I got her she had raw exspose teeth nerves & had alot removed which helped her temerment no end. Desexing her helped alot also.
    Tori is still fear aggressive with strange men but a much loved member of our family. And loves my boy Lockie.

    Tori is a good example of what happens when they can not show or breed the bitch she becomes disposable.

    That is a very sad tale with a happy ending for Tori.

    My friend had friends who had a delightful pit bull which they adored and lavished attention on. This dog was their baby, it slept on their bed and went with them everywhere.

    When their babies came along this dog was also banished to live in the garden shed and totally ignored. My friend was horrified and used to take the pit bull to stay with her as much as she could or it would have stayed unexercised and unloved in the garden through rain and hot weather for the rest of its life.

    On the ocassion the dog became seriously ill my friend again had to come to the rescue and take her to the vet or the owners would completely have ignored her suffering and allowed her to die in the backyard. My friend paid for a cruciate repair or that too would have gone unnoticed and untreated

    I dont understand how people think sometimes.

    A good ending Story........My Annabelle's story is very similar bought to show, but left in a crate most of the time and hose the pee&poop from under neath her. They liked showing her as a puppy, but when she became a BIG pup, they bought a little dog and left her. Luckily someone reported her plight to the Breeder and she is now with us. She was also people and dog aggressive, when we got her at 14 months. But we have got her over all of that luckily.
    It amazes me how much money people will spend on a dog and still treat it cruelly. There are many pure breeds who lead the life from hell. I know that a lot of people think that their are no Pure breed rescues. When i say, I do Rescue and tell them newfie rescue, I often get told that it is not real rescue. Apparently in some people s eyes to be real rescue, the dogs have to be cross breed.......Go figure

    Newf, Crazy, and everyone else out there who rescues; you are amazing. My family have never, ever bought a pup; everyone of our dogs have been rescued or rehomed in one way or another (yep, even Villain and Flirtt).
    It never fails to astound me how some people think or act.

    I am not saying that there are not....Just if you speak to "Jo average", they think pure breeds are not rescues. I know that there are a lot of breed specific rescues

    Great replies guys.

    I so easily forget that pure, as well as cross breeds are waiting for a caring home.

    Good stuff for your efforts CD

    Me too alot of people are so cruel & thoughtless with their animals.
    Thank god for people willing to take older dogs like you & newfie though as they are always the hardest to rehome.

    I know & when I tell people thaey can probley find a pure but mature TM or Maremma in rescue given some persistance they are amazed but many only want puppies.
    I think many people think charging big money for their pups is another way to make sure they have a good home & it just isn't. In Tori's case they would have spent over 20k but when she hated showing & then wouldn't produce she was worthless to them. He even tried to charge me $3k for her & I did pay $700 as it was the only way he would give her up.
    I know of Husky breeder who imported a male they know is passing on a genetic fault yet continue to breed him as they say they have to get their money back on him. Worse still I watched this particular dog go BIG.
