Richmond: Special listing - Blossom


Susan writes: I pulled Blossom from the Caroline County Animal Shelter in March, with her 9 newborn pups. Blossom was emaciated at only 38lbs. Her pups were not well either, and all died before they were two weeks old, despite my attempts to bottlefeed. When Blossom went in for her spay, we found out that she had an infection in her uterus, which is probably what happened to all those beautiful babies.
Blossom is a wonderful, sweet girl who needs a forever home soon!!! She is housebroken, and knows several commands, such as sit, give paw, lay down and stay! She is a wonderful dog! She is a very dominant dog with other dogs though, and has been in a few fights with my Shepherd mix. I think she could do well with another dog as long as it is a submissive dog.
She is good with cats and kids! I have three small kids and she is great with them although a little hyper!

Because of the issues that Blossom has with my dog Buddy, I have to keep her completely separate from my other dogs, and she is lonely here! She really needs to find her forever home!
