For this Tail of the Month, we asked you to share your stories about your rescue dogs. We loved Maz’s story of her rescue dog Elsa, and how giving her a second chance at life changed her life too:
This is Elsa, my angel. We have been together 5 years in April. I got her from the pound. She had all her fur shaved off due to fleas and knots. I thought she was a white dog but as time went on I found out she was brown and white. I didn’t rescue her it was the other way round, she rescued me. She keeps me fit by walking whereas before I didn’t bother. She is my best friend and is a joy to wake up to in the morning. I can not wake up grumpy anymore, I now wake up to a pink tongue kissing me and a wagging tail. She loves to play ball and tug of war, so I can now never get bored. She is also a good guard dog, I feel safe as she sure lets me know if anyone is around. So I sleep better at night time now. Our journey together is one of love, she knows all my secrets as well. I love her so so much. She is just the best!!!
