The Daily Dog: Little Bit
Urban Dog and Onpets Giveaway Winner
Little Bit was a feral dog living under an abandoned house in downtown St. Louis, Missouri. Stray Rescue attempted to capture her, her mother, and Little Bit’s litter of puppies, but they eluded capture for more than a year. She had had a second set of puppies before Stray Rescue finally caught her, her puppies, and her ‘puppy-papa’. Her pet parents adopted her within a week of her rescue.
When Little Bit went to her forever home, she had very thin fur, was recovering from flea bites, and had heart worms. It took several months for her skin to heal and several more months to go through the treatment for heart worms. Eventually she was healthy and running around like a bullet. Then she blew out a knee! She then had to have knee surgery with a titanium implant and an eight-week recovery time. She is now completely healthy, happy, and running around like a bullet again.
Little Bit loves to empty her toy box of every one of her favorite toys – especially right after they have been picked up. She likes to pretend she is a cat and scrubs back and forth under human legs, creating her own back scratching posts. This how her humans can tell who Little Bit’s favorite people are.
After losing two lifetime companions that Little Bit’s parents had raised from puppies, they became aware of how many dogs there are who need second chances, so they decided that their next companion would be a rescue. They then jumped in with both feet and brought not one but two rescues home. Little Bit’s parents say “They seem to be the most grateful four-legge- kids we have ever had. She seems to be the smartest fur baby we have ever known.”
