Liza was found in Niagara Falls, NY by the SPCA. She was tied to a pipe by an extension cord in an alley. She was muzzled and laying in filth for an undetermined amount of time. The picture the rescuers took at the time of her rescue will evoke lots of different emotions from sadness to pure rage in any person looking at it.
She was taken to the SPCA facility where they gave her a physical exam and they patched up her tail which had been injured seemingly by the debris in the alley. They waited for Liza's family to arrive to take her home. When he family never showed up to claim her, ABC was contact to take her into foster care.
Once she arrived into her foster home she instantly come around. She loves exploring the yard, counter surfing and playing with her foster brother and sister. She even looks to be happy and smiling.
ABC doesn't normally take in "long-legged" hounds (aka coonhounds), but how could we say no to this dog in need. We knew she needed a special foster home and a group of people who would care for her as she deserved while her perfect "forever family" was found.
Currently, Liza is still recovering but will be up for adoption just as soon as her tail is completely healed.
