Rescued dog needs loving home

Published 11:54am Wednesday, January 30, 2013

I want to share a personal story this week with our Hartselle Enquirer readers.

About three and one-half months ago, I got up on a Sunday morning and to my surprise there was a dog asleep in my carport. The dog was nearly starved to death and you could see all of her ribs and backbone as well as she also had a crippled back leg. By the grace of God and a lot of good food and care, she is now in perfect health and as you can see from her photo, she has made a really beautiful American Boxer bulldog. I named her Miss Festus and I judge her to be about one year of age. She is still in her puppy stage of life. I have to keep her tied and I also have a small dog, which I keep inside, and he is so very jealous if I pet Miss Festus. I am trying to place her in a good loving home with people who will love her, play with her and be good to her. Anyone interested in Miss Festus can call me at, 256-460-5479 or email me at, I hope and pray that I can place Miss Festus in a good, loving home.
