Bridget has had a long road for such a young dog. Bridget came to Midwest BREW when a Good Samaritan found her in the woods, skinny and too weak to walk. Bridget got healthier, but she became pregnant, and the family could no longer care for her. Soon after she came to us, Bridget gave birth to eight beautiful, healthy babies on Thanksgiving Day.  Her health was on the uptick, but she still had two puncture wounds on her back that would not heal.  The vet tried antibiotics, a culture, and more antibiotics, no luck. After an x-ray, it was determined that she had been shot and shrapnel from the wound had lodged in her back causing infection. A difficult and delicate surgery was necessary. She was off the to the specialty vet, where it was determined that the infection was caused by two small bone fragments that came off the tips of her spine and remained in her back. The surgery for this was very intense, but in the end she did well, and the two horrendously infected bone fragments were retrieved. We were not done yet!  Bridget developed a serious post op infection and off to the ER she went.  MORE antibiotics and waiting for cultures.  The girl had her own pharmacy.  From that point on, months ago at this point, she has been a healthy and happy girl.  All through this from day one, Bridget has been amiable, friendly, and affectionate.  No one would ever believe the trauma this sweet girl has been through. 

Finally, we’re here to talk about next steps – Bridget’s forever home which she so richly deserves.  Although not mandatory, Bridget would do well in a house with other dogs, she has two playmates here and they are always on the go.  One caution, as easygoing and playful as Bridget is, she must be top dog. If she is challenged, she will not walk away.  Her foster canine pals are very laid back (i.e., chickens) and we have had hours of fun while watching them. She is loving and sweet natured with adults and children. She’s young and needs activity in order to not become mischievous. She loves life and she will love a new home.  Is it yours?

PS: Bridget is crate trained with other dogs in the room, on her own she would need training to adjust. 

NOTE: Dogs may be located in any of our six volunteer states (WI, IL, IN, OH, PA, MI).
