Pet of the Month: A rough start, a sweet finish

Abigail is a sweet 2-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that was rescued from a hoarder-like home, while suffering a broken hip. She is ready to be pampered and lavished with love and attention, as befitting her “kingly” breed (submitted photo).

Emergency Animal Medical Technicians were summoned to a residence in Phoenix to pick up more than 20 dogs who were left behind when their owner was suddenly hospitalized and put on life support. Many of the dogs quickly found homes, but because of the filthy and deplorable living conditions, most of the dogs were in need of medical care including Abigail, who suffered a terrible hip fracture.

After a few months of recuperating, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is now ready for a home. Having spent most of her life lost in the shuffle in an overcrowded living situation, Abigail hopes to find a family who will make her the center of attention and shower her with love and reassurance. A foster family has been working with Abigail and as a result, the once shy 2-year-old now greets everyone with a thumping tail wag and proceeds to crawl in any nearby lap. She’s also learned to appreciate belly rubs, ear scratches and napping in clean, cozy dog beds. She would be a wonderful buddy to curl up with and spend an afternoon reading a good book.

Schedule a meet-and-greet with Abigail at the Arizona Humane Society’s Sunnyslope Campus, located at 9226 N. 13th Ave. Her adoption fee is $250, which includes her medical treatment, spay surgery and vaccinations. For more information, call 602-997-7585 and ask for animal ID number A528439.

Abigail may have been adopted by the time you visit the shelter but there are many other pets just like her in need of a new home and you can see them all by visiting www.azhumane.org.
