Spuds Was A Puppy When She Was Abandoned On A Busy Highway, And Sentenced To Death. Now, She’s A Beloved Family Pup

November 09, 2017

Spuds Mackenzie is a gorgeous black and tan Corgi and Chihuahua mix who lives in Connecticut with her adoring family. Spuds loves to get to know any and every dog she can, and she’s never met a dog she didn’t like! Spuds is a little nervous around people, but she’s slowly learning that people don’t mean her any harm! We can’t fault her for her fear though, not when you hear everything she endured.

Spuds’ life began in Princeton, Kentucky, where she was the result of an unwanted litter. This adorable little mutt was never given the chance to live the life a dog should. Her momma’s owner didn’t care what happened to her, and gave her to the first person that wanted her, not caring what happened next.

Her new owners quickly grew tired of caring her, and neglected her every need. It wasn’t long before they decided that this adorable puppy was not what they wanted, and they abandoned her off a busy trucking route to die. Rescuers aren’t sure how long Spuds was searching for help along that stretch of road before she was saved.

When Spuds was brought to the local pound, she was marked for euthanasia as soon as she stepped paw inside the door. She was covered in fleas and ticks, and extremely hungry. She was suffering from a horrible skin infection that had left her completely bald, and things didn’t look good for her at all.

Luckily for Spuds, Kindness For Homeless Paws caught word of her fate, and stepped in to save her. They managed to heal her up, giving her all of the veterinary care she needed. When she was completely better, they placed her up for adoption, and she didn’t have to wait long.

When Spuds new momma found her photos online, and saw her adorable bat ears, she knew they were meant to be. She immediately put in an application to adopt Spuds, and then arranged transport for the pup up to Connecticut. The two bonded immediately, and it’s clear they were meant to be from the start. Nowadays, Spuds her free time trying to eat anything and everything she can get her paws on! This gorgeous goof may have had a rough start to her life, but it’s sure to be amazing from here on out!
