|It took us some time to be able to post Tally's bio. We were waiting for the "after" pictures (which we received today 8/6), to show her healthy and strong and ready for her spay surgery.
TALLY'S DISCOVERY: Tally was discovered in the middle of the street in Devore, California, by Faith of Dream Fetchers: Project Rescue. She was so filthy that Faith misidentified her as a husky.
Tally was standing in the middle of the street -- maybe where she was dropped off by her uncaring owners -- who knows how many days or weeks she'd been out there, wandering the streets looking for them and trying to stay alive on her own. She was filthy and unrecognizable as a white German shepherd. In the dim light, she looked like a dark grey dog...
Somehow Faith and her team managed to get Tally out of the dangerous intersection where they attempted to get her turned around and headed in the right direction.
With the help of some local gentlemen, Tally was caught.
The first stop for Tally was the vet's office.
She was x-rayed and found to have a stomach full of garbage. We can only imagine what she had been forced to eat just to survive.
Due to her poor physical state, Tally remained at the vet's office for weeks until she was well enough to be taken to Crossroads for boarding.
UPDATE 8/6: Tally has been under the care of Cathleen and Joe at Crossroads and, as you can see from her pictures, she is doing well. She is scheduled for spay surgery this week and will be transported to Phoenix as soon as a foster spot opens up for her.
Adoption fee to be determined.
