Lucky’s life didn’t start out so luckily. Early on she had her ears cut off and was abused by Afghans who felt that Lucky, like all other dogs, was a disgusting creature.
A unit of Canadian soldiers found her severely malnourished and clearly abused in 2006. They rescued and cared for her for nearly three years. During that time Lucky experienced love, had her belly filled daily, and was properly cared for by these amazing soldiers. Sadly none of them were able to take her home but they were able to get her to the shelter just two days before their unit pulled out.
And there Lucky stayed. The dog who had provided so many soldiers with comfort and happiness now waited for a home of her own. Without a family or home to go to, she lived at the shelter for months and months, watching other rescued dogs come and go.
Finally this year it was Lucky’s turn!
Through Puppy Rescue Mission and Nowzad, a home was found for Lucky near formerly rescued Alph and Bear.
In early September 2010 Lucky arrived in Maine where she will be loved and cared for the remainder of her life.
She may not be in Canada, but at least now she’s close to those who cared so much for her for so long.
Her new owner says: “Lucky is settling in well. She charms everyone she meets!”
