I saved Bindi back in March 2012. When I came across her photo on Facebook, my heart broke. She looked so pathetic. She had very long, yellowed nails that were so long they were curved. She had severe mange complete with a bleeding sore, homemade ear crop, and she was very emaciated weighing only 53 pounds. The look on her face was one of defeat! She was labeled as aggressive, and after being tagged, we almost lost all hope of being able to save her. Fortunately, the shelter allowed us to continue with the rescue process and a very kind transporter offered to bring her to my work. Bindi was a doll. She was so thankful to be out and safe, that she showed no kind of aggressiveness towards her new found savior on the ride to Dallas. Once I met her, I instantly fell in love. I knew that this girl came to me for a reason. Bindi needed me, and anyone who knows me knows I love the mange babies. She was going to be on her way to a happy life and never again have to worry about anything.
Fast forward six months later and Bindi is still in my care. She has had some some ups and downs with her Demodex mange issue, as it tends to flare up when there is any sort of change. For the most part she is healing up nicely. She now weighs around 65 pounds and is the happiest, goofiest, and sweetest little girl I have been blessed to care for. People mistake her for an old male dog due to her muscular (and unique) build, but the vet believes she is around 3 years old and other than her Demodex flare ups, she is one healthy little lady! Bindi is looking for her forever home, a home where they will continue treatment for her Demo, which may be something she deals with for the rest of her life. She has so much love to give and will keep you laughing until your sides hurt! She has been spayed, heartworm tested (negative), microchipped, and is fully vaccinated.

Thanks to AAS and all who assisted in this rescue, because this girl means the world to me.
