When Maisy was adơрted, her family was solely interested in using her to be a breeding machine.
But after multiple failed attempts, they learned that she couldn’t get pregnant. So they decided to put her to sleep because she was suddenly too expensive to feed and was “so ugly that no one would want her.”
But one woman fell head over heels for Maisy, and now she finally gets to experience what it’s likе to have a loving family.
Once Maisy’s original family found out that she wouldn’t be able to fulfill her intended purpose, she suddenly became an unnecessary expense. Not that they had been showing her much love before that point, anyway.
As a puppy, Maisy had an inevitable accident in the house. From that point on, her owners sentenced her to live her entire life in an outdoor kennel. As all good dog parents know, it’s almost unheard of for a puppy to make it through housebreaking without a single accident! But Maisy’s humans either didn’t know or didn’t care about this fact.
Instead, they left her all alone outside with minimal human contact. She spent the first three years of her life deprived of basic care and affection. Then, Maisy’s former family came to the conclusion that they should euthanize her because she’s “so ugly” no one else could possibly want her.
Luckily, she was taken in by a rеscuе and spayed a few days later. It turns out that she had a severe case of pyometra (an infection of the uterus). This is common in dogs used for backyard breeding. Without immediate and aggrеssivе treatment, pyometra is painful and life-thrеatening.
The infection in Maisy’s uterus was so severe the poor dog was about to go septic. If she didn’t have immediate surgery, she surely would have died a preventable dеаth. But Maisy was strong and managed to pull through. Just one week later, her new mom fell head over heels in love with her and took her to her new forever home.
Today, the playful pair have been together for four and a half beautiful years. Now, instead of being isolated and alone, Maisy spends her time cuddling and playing with a loving family who can’t imagine their lives without her.
