This is extra
Sandy appeared in a pasture soon after I moved to the farm in 2007. My brother Samuel saw her in a field and someone who worked on the farm took food to her several days. When it seemed that she was not leaving and no one was looking for her he had her taken to my house and put in one of the fenced dog areas. When I checked voice mail after meetings in Murfreesboro I had a message that I would have a new dog when I got home. After getting Sandy spayed and wellness exam and vaccines I planned to integrate her with the six rescues who had moved here with me but she had other ideas. Sandy wanted to be the boss and this was not good for the other dogs or Sandy so I gave her a large fenced area. Several months later a Hound mix came to the barn area and we took food for several days then decided that he needed a home and named him Rusty. He and Sandy were compatible and lived together until Rusty crossed The Rainbow Bridge. Sandy continued to be very independent and my goal was to allow Sandy to live as she wanted in an environment which was enriching.
