Every other year, IDR+ President Pam takes a 3-week break from rescue to volunteer with special needs children in an far-away location. This time around, Pam planned to go to Ecuador, and before she left, she was contacted by the rescue she worked at before in Peru about a Doberman with a bad leg who needed rescue. Since Pam was going to be “in the area,” she agreed to fly through Peru on her way home to rescue the 6-month-old Dobe named Muñeca, which is “doll” in Spanish. Her leg was deformed, and our vet amputated it successfully. She now gets around like a champ. The total to rescue Muñeca from Peru was about $500, and her amputation is $800. In her foster home, Muñeca is a fun project. When she is one-on-one with Pam, she is a blast. She is smart and fun. She is housebroken, crate trained, and not a chewer. When she first arrived, she was extremely fearful of the other dogs. After a few weeks and a slow introduction, she is now getting along with the other foster dogs both large and small. She play bows with them in the yard and sleeps next to them on the couch. Even though she has bonded with her foster mom, she is very slow to warm up to new people. Muñeca is very young, so this is the best time for her to get adopted and learn that the people in her new forever home can train and love her as much as her foster mom does.
