I am putting out an appeal in the hopes of finding Tashi a new home. I've posted to the many boards I am on, and was so hoping I would find good news when I opened my email this morning. I got many notes from people saying how they would love to take her, what a great dog she is, but . . .
Tashi killed another chicken yesterday, almost got two more. One chicken escaped into the calf pen. Tashi can't live here anymore. Everything I read says she has become a full-fledged chicken killer, and she will not be changed. She is a great dog, just not in a family with chickens. My friend Kayla works with animal rescuers and is working through her network to see what she can find. In the meantime, my poor Tashi has become a 24/7 house dog. My anger towards her is gone. I am just holding her and petting her and telling her she is going to get to go to a new home.
I just put the chicken she mauled yesterday into the compost heap, after trying to revive her last night. I kept her wrapped in warm towels, thought I saw some eye movement, but she was probably already dead before I went to bed.
I am a hopeless optimist, not just with reviving chickens, but also about finding Tashi a home. Maybe one of you readers know of someone who might be looking for a loving dog. Here is more about her. Tashi
I am so hoping she finds a loving home.
