Hi, I adopted Polly in 2017. She has been an absolute joy to have as part of my family. She had a horrible life before AFH rescued her, but in spite it, that amazing dog didn’t have one mean bone in her body. She loved all my dogs and was so wonderful with any foster that came thru my house. It is with a broken heart that I have to tell you that I had to let her go to the Bridge today. Several months ago I found a mass under her arm. We biopsied it and it turned out to be metastasized breast cancer. It had also gotten into her lymph nodes. I was hoping to have so much more time with her, but this morning I noticed her abdomen was enlarged and she was pale. She also for the first time didn’t want breakfast. She LOVED her food so that was a big thing for her. I took her to my vet and the reality was she was only going to get worse pretty quickly. Polly had suffered for the beginning years of her life and I had promised her when I got her that she would never suffer again, so I had to let her go. Thank you so much for adopting this very special dog to me, I will miss her more than I can say. Know that she was loved very much here. I’ve attached a picture of Polly with one of her buddies.
