Meet Carmel (#MyTurn)

by Charlene Morton


Last week, I published a post about a sweet little adoptable Terrier, Maya -- within minutes, someone advised me of their interest in her. They are now set up for a home visit, so fingers are crossed! So, I'm replacing that post with this one! 

A former client (and now friend) is fostering this sweet little girl, Carmel.

I got to meet Carmel this past Saturday, and she is very curious and allowed me to pet her within a few minutes of meeting her. But, I want to tell you more about her story. Carmel and one of her pups were constantly chained outside, and when their owners were evicted from their house, they left the dogs behind. A month passed, and Carmel had chewed through her tether and was hunting mice to feed her son and herself. When Carmel came to her foster, she had fleas, whipworms, hookworms, and heartworms. 

Carmel is a small in stature, but with all that muscle, weighs about 40 pounds, and is thought to be around 5 or 6 years old. She loves human attention, is very obedient, and learns quickly. Unfortunately, her foster family is unable to keep her on a permanent basis. Carmel would thrive in a one-pet home, as she sometimes doesn't do well with other dogs (cats are not recommended, either).

If Carmel's tugging at your heartstrings, please e-mail me on my Contact Page, and I'll put you in touch with the right person. Please share her on your social media pages, as well (#MyTurn)!
