Happy 1 year Mercy

Today has reached a very important day in Mercy's life. She has hit the 1 year mark. This is important because, she is the pup that beat many odds to stay with us. From being beaten to having parvo and fighting pneumonia.
I still remember the day I picked her up to be a foster pup like it was yesterday...
I love you Mercy, and thank you for fighting so hard to stay to be with my family.

Mercy's passing is very sad indeed. I wish that things were different for this girl.
Rotties are a very unique breed and are not meant for everyone. When dealing with rotts that have certain behavioural or temperment issues, it is best to consult with professionals and/or consult with organizations that can help either re-home, re-habilitate or provide insight and support.

As dog owners, we should really know our own limitations. I know for myself, I admire the Akita but I know this breed is not for me based on my lifestyle, lack of knowledge and commitment to own such a powerful breed.

Bless your heart Mercy.

Hopefully Mercy is Brandi's guardian angel now and can watch out for her from wherever she is.

I don't understand if she had been beaten, then had beaten parvo then fought pneumonia - you even thanked her ... then euthanized her a few weeks later why?

Mercy
Reading that link just ripped my heart out I really hope this isn't the case. But if so - something must be done so that no other animal suffers Has anyone who knows her personally have spoken to her? I've heard of this illness with humans, I certainly hope her daughter isn't at risk. sorry to be blunt.

RIP Mercy and all the ones' gone before *sad*
