Mama is a perfect co-pilot


She’s just Mama!

She came with that name. She was a street dog, the woman feeding her and her family of 4 pups named her Mama.

We’ve been together 4 glorious years. I was at the local shelter when Mama’s daughter was being turned in. A woman was feeding a pack of strays, and she wanted Missy (now Maggie Mae) to have a better life, so she brought her to the county shelter. Missy was in a ball, on the floor, peeing herself she was so scared. I was at the shelter looking for a lost foster dog, and made the split second decision to take Missy (Maggie). Then, the woman told me she had 3 more strays at her house she was feeding for a year and needed help placing. It took me 3 months to get my rescue to take the other 3 — one was Mama. She was so scared and fearful, I thought she would never be adopted. So, I decided to keep Mother and Daughter together.
