She is a rescue dog of a mutt variety but was very sweet when we met her last week. She comes from California (not sure about getting a Valley Doll) and was dropped off at a pound because she was pregnant by an owner who obviously didn't care about her. Once a mother to be is just dropped off like so much waste and found to be pregnant it appears California would rather put her down than let her have the puppies. So she was shipped to Washington in an effort to save her and her pups. The pups were born right after she got here. I have been told that people will actually pay for the pups here in Washington where they can't give them away in California.
Matters not to me. I have a really good feeling that we have found a great, loving travel companion. Now all that is necessary is retirement and a road in front of us.
Hope everyone is well and being safe.
