is an original import that was born in Hungary
on August 13, 2004. She was sold to the US by her
breeder along with several, if not all, littermates. She just
spent her fourth birthday in a puppy mill as she has every year
of her life. Friday, August the 22nd, Clumbers in
Need gave her a belated birthday present, the present being she
will never spend another day in a puppy mill. This day her new
husband Edward picked her up and after a long drive home he
brought her to McLendon Land. It was very late that Friday night
when they arrived but the instant I met her I could sense she
was something special. I could tell she was nervous with her new
surroundings but she automatically liked me and did not want me
out of her sight.
appeared to live in better conditions than some of the other
rescues but she was still deprived of love and missed out on what a Clumber enjoys most;
spending time with their humans. It seemed it had been a long
time since she had had a bath, if she’d ever had one. Her feet
were in awful condition as the nails had curled completely under
and she had a pebble embedded between two toes. Ms Emmie was
very patient with me as I worked for two hours grooming her.
While soaking her paw in Epsom salt to clean out the wound the
pebble had caused, it baffled me how anyone could have a Clumber
as sweet as she was and not “love” her as I had already
fallen for her.
no way to know how many puppy mills she has been in since she
was sold to the US but I’m sure there were many. In spite of
no one concerning themselves with her well being, her
temperament is absolutely wonderful. Emmie came in with a slight
“rescue slump” but I have no doubt that in no time she will
be bouncing around full of confidence. She “smiles” more
often than not and is a joy to watch.
Edward picked her up and she came willingly with him, she seems
to be afraid of men as she cowers down every time she sees him.
has so much to offer and now that she has a chance, I am sure
she will make up for all those years when she was nothing more
than a puppy producer.
has only been a part of McLendon Land for a short time but she,
like all of them, has touched my heart. I felt a connection to
her right away, maybe
it was because she looks and reminds me of my Dolly who we lost.
I’m not sure what it is but what I do know is that I am so
thankful that she is safe and that she will never be abused or
