This is Georgia, the newest member of the canine clan at Proud Spirit.
Jim is a police officer and spotted her while doing patrol near a wooded area of our rural town. She was emaciated, dehydrated, covered in fleas and ticks, her ear was ripped, and she has scars all over her face and body. She'd also clearly had several litters of pups. Jim coaxed her into his patrol car then took her to our local vet.
The Reader's Digest version is, after eight days at the vet where she had time to begin recovery and get spayed, we made her a part of our family.
