Patti and John Liegl shared this with us:
All of our current seven (3 dogs and 4 cats) are rescued and have great stories. This is Hope & Luv's story.
Puppies, Hope and her litter-mate Luv were dumped off in June 2000. They couldn't have been more than 8 weeks old.
Hill Creek Vet told us at the time that at least two other pairs were dumped in the county as well, likely litter-mates.
Hope and Luv were living in the culvert
not far from our neighborhood.
Food would not draw them out.
Water was the only way we could get Hope out as it had been so dry that spring.
As I held Hope, who was loaded with ticks, my dear friend Rae crawled through the 90 ft. culvert to back Luv out. Luv was so frightened she could not come out on her own.
Luv ended in the arms of my husband and dear friend Robert.
It began to rain and we took shelter in our garage, with two new pups, all of us soaking wet and crying in appreciation of these dear souls.
Twelve years have passed quickly and the "sisters" are still very close. They have been such a blessing to both our families.
