The dog in the foreground is Sammee. Her former dwelling was a northern reserve. She was most likely part of in feral pack. Her life owes to a humane policeman that couldn't bear to shoot a young pregnant dog during a periodic cull. She had three pups after arrival at the rescue centre. The vet said "This dog cannot take one more thing". Although a physical and mental mess when we adopted her, she's bright, brave, and quickly became a favourite of all the dogs and their people at the dog park. A queen among dogs, no less.
