Fergie Practicing Motherhood With A Stuffed Kitty

Fergie stole a stuffed kitty from my daughters room and carries it all through the house, cleaning it and protecting it from the other Low Riders. She is so ...

I gasped when I saw those nails. I have never seen anything like that in my life. I imagine you are no longer friends with Fergie's previous owner. What abuse and neglect!

Yes..I'm a Wendy as well! I just wish my father was Dave Thomas. LOL Fergie was not only neglected mentally but physically as well. She weighed 18 lbs when I brought her home and could feel hip bones, back bone, ribs...you name it I could map it out from touch. She now weighs 23 - 24 lbs. She was kept in a small crate for hrs to only be let out for an hr or so and when I got there she was dying of thirst. WHile I was there the question even was asked if she had been fed and this is after 10 pm and then the leary answer of "oh yeah I did" WRONG! I was told she was so thirsty because if she has water in front of her she will just drink and drink and drink. Hmmm....she has water in front of her 24/7 and NO SHE DOESN'T. I was also told they fed her 4 cups of food a day and you know as well as I do there is noway and be underweight. I feed her less then a cup a day...when I fed her a cup she got up to 25lbs and she looked to chubby to me. Of course I've done a thorough deworming and vaccinations with a high quality kibble with supplements I add so the quality is better. I was also told she got walked on concrete for 4 miles a night and that her nails grow like crazy and they were just done 5 weeks ago..hahaha I will post the picture of those nails the night I got her and there is noway she was being walked because you will see no wear faucets on them and they are splayed. I don't have her on concrete..grass all the time and they don't grow like that for me. Also was told she was given a bath and groomed but she's blowing a coat bad. Hahaha...she was filthy....tuffs falling off and her coat was dry and brittle. One bath and me grooming her the shedding stopped. Shall I go on? LOL This is the type of stuff that I can literally say..people are stupid! Do you honestly think someone who knows dogs can be fooled? And worse yet...this was a friend of mine and they very well know how I take care of animals and pick up on things. DUH  Anyways..here are a couple of those photos the night I brought her home.

@ Wendy - It warmed my heart to read about you and Fergie today. She's a lucky girl to have found a home with you! Sounds like she's in her forever home. My first rescue sounds very similar to Fergie and he turned out to be one of the most loyal and best dogs I've ever owned. We re-homed our tri-boy, Ricky/Rafa 7 mo. ago. He's been a challenge, to say the least; but in totally opposite ways than Fergie. He's very outgoing, sweet as sugar, but very destructive inside and out. He's a work in progress, but we're not giving up on him, yet, haha. We adore him although he tries our souls and Lucy's! Incidentally Lucy is my red & white fabulous Pem. I'm Wendy, and I am assuming you're a Wendy, too, right?

I ask the same question Lucy!!! I don't meet many Wendy's either!!! Fergie I was told went from the breeder to a pet home where they claimed they could not get her housebroke...she went back to another breeder who sent her to another breeder to be sold to an Amish breeder..my friend bought her from him and couldn't get things done with her so I went to look at her and my heart ached for her and knew my dogs would help her relax and work in my home. The first thing I did was not push myself on her...I saw that if she saw how happy my dogs were to be petted by me she'd cautiously approach and as long as I did not make eye contact I could hold my hand out and have her follow it..once she came to me I would massage her and rub her belly and she liked that. But if anything changed...she would go back to how she was. It was very frustrating, but I just let her be. She was a nervous wreck and on the leash outside she never sat still and if in her crate it took so much to get her to come out and don't dare reach for her or she'd launch back in there like she was always thrown in or yanked out...so I would never grab her..just hold my hand out..no eye contact and talk calmly and she'd follow my hand...outside I started to just leave a long line on her and let her go...figured confinement was an issue with her and when ever she approached me I always pay attention to her. You should see her today...she is totally different. Its amazing...she is so relaxed and totally fully trusts me. She has even gotten to the point of greeting strangers a bit and lays in the middle of the room belly up...when you pick her up now its not like rigamortis has set in...she more relaxed. It does my heart good because she is the sweetest thing ever and her eyes are so sweet and innocent. OH...and she does not piddle in my house at all like she was doing with everyone else and she has never had a poo accident except at first. She loves my husband and loves the other Low Riders. She is still a little bit leary of the kids but its their fast moves and loudness...I can't say I blame her but now she allows them to walk up to her and will actually walk past them. She follows me through the house where before she found a corner and stayed there..she has even slept with me and every morning after she eats she races up the stairs, jumps on my bed to say good morning and then goes back down to go outside. hehe There is noway before she would do this. Does my heart good to see her happy and living as she should.

Why did Fergie have so many homes in such a short time? She seems like a gentle sweetie pie.

Well Fergie is a little sweetie pie. Good luck. Meantime, I didn't realize that you're a Wendy, too. I don't meet many Wendy's.

She is 2.5 yrs old and just was bred last weekend for an April litter. I have never bred her so hopefully she takes, if not I think we will wait for her next heat and do progesterone tests to get her cycle down since she was in standing heat earlier then most which tells me she must not show me signs til a little further into her heat and is making my counting a few days off. Keeping fingers crossed since I am looking into a CH male to breed to her the next time that will be line breeding. I love Fergie...she is so sweet and is so funny at times. She had a hard start and I'm her 7th or 8th owner before she was even 2 yrs old which is pathetic. I do have a wonderful home that is perfect for her if she doesn't make a good mother and that lady also has my Baron with her and Fergie does like her which is perfect. I've had her since last May and she's come a long way!!

Fergie is so sweet and has the softest lovely eyes. What a beautiful girl. How old is she? Any plans for her to become a mother. Looks like she'd be a wonderful mom.
