When you purchase items from the iHeartDogs store, a portion of the proceeds go to GreaterGood. GreaterGood is an incredible organization that uses donations to help dogs in need. Many dogs have been transported away from high-risk areas to find their forever families. One of those dogs is Possum.
Possum is guessed to be a Chihuahua and Dachshund mix. She first lived with a homeless man in Bakersfield, California. Her human was unable to get her spayed, so despite only being two years old, she had countless litters of puppies throughout her life. Eventually, the homeless man knew it was time to give his pup to a family who could treat her better. But that meant she had a long journey ahead of her.
Thanks to a GreaterGood grant, which was funded by the iHeartDogs community, Possum got a second chance. START Rescue transported her out of California to give her a better life. She soon arrived at Oregon Dog Rescue in Tualatin, Oregon. From there, she gave birth to her last litter of puppies. She had five handsome boys and one beautiful girl. From that moment on, she would no longer have to worry about being pregnant ever again.
Possum’s pups quickly got adopted, and she was given the space and support to fully recover from her past. Her transformation is kind of like a Cinderella story. Soon, she looked like a happy puppy instead of an overbred mom. She became even happier when a kind family adopted her and gave her the home she always dreamed of.
“Possum is doing wonderful,” said Possum’s new family. “It is hard to put into words the joy she has brought to our family. Even the cat seems to enjoy her company. She does not like to have her picture taken but loves the snow and has two jackets! She is a joy and love personified.”
Thanks to purchases from the iHeartDogs store, many dogs like Possum get a second chance at life. Thank you to all the incredible heroes who have purchased products to save dogs in need!
