Gretchen [ADOPTED JULY 7] is a wonderful dog who really needed a break. She was dumped in shelter, filthy, matted and pregnant. Someone probably made a good living off her puppies. She is at least ten years old and all the neglect has certainly taken its toll but her spirit is still there. Her puppies were born dead but Gretchen is doing well. She is a bit shy. More than likely she was locked in a crate most of her life. As frightened as she is, her tail never stops wagging. Gretchen is housetrained and crate trained.
