A Happy Ending for Lil’ Bit’ | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I think yesterday was a day for the books! Not only were we able to save that poor flea infested little puppy from almost certain death, we were blessed with the perfect couple to take her into their family and her new Forever Home 🏡.

You remember this flea infested little gal from yesterday’s blog. Well, she was adopted into the perfect family within 30 hours of my original contact.

So many people saw her on my blog yesterday that wanted to know if they could help. Several wanted to Adopt her too 😊 WOW! It makes me feel good about the world when so many offer their support for an abandoned dog.

An old friend called me about her (we were calling her Lil’ Bit’ at the time). As soon as I heard his voice and realized what the call was about, I was thrilled! He and his beautiful wife wanted to give this puppy a home 🏡. I couldn’t think of a better place for her to be!

What a great picture! Lil Bit’ got the perfect family and a Forever Home!

Sometimes things work out! We are going to miss this little gal 😊

She’s happy and headed home now 😊 Good luck with your new home Lil’ Bit. I’m anxious to hear what your name will be. I’ll update everyone when I hear.

I Love ❤️Dogs!

We ALL Need somebody to LOVE | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I just happened to be in the right place at the right time and was able to save this little puppy that someone just threw out into the street.

Someone literally threw this little puppy out in the street. She was so scared.

She was completely flea infested! I have never seen an infestation worse – WOW! Hundreds of fleas on this 1 little puppy 😞 She had scratched the fur off her neck where she had been itching so badly from all those fleas…

She had scratched the fur completely off in many areas fighting the fleas. It took several baths and quite a while with tweezers to get all the fleas.

After we got her all cleaned up, we got her to take some milk from a syringe & then off to the vet we went.

I don’t think she had eaten in a while.

The vet gave her the needed shots, wormed her, trimmed her nails & weighed her (1 lb). She’s around 7 weeks old. Now she’s sleeping soundly wrapped up in a blanket.

She’s sleeping & doing fine. It’s got to be a relief not to have all those fleas…

I think she’s gonna be ok 😊 All she needed was a little Love ❤️
