Rachel and her brother Ross were found late at night at a Dollar General trying to run into store. It was raining and they were soaked and thin. The manager took them home and was planning on keeping them. Once she noticed worms in her stool, she decided she didn't want sick dogs and called the Paws Crossed Rescue in Alabama. They took them straight to the vet and the puppies were diagnosed with Coccidia. They were treated and with time became healthy while in the rescue. Rachel was able to make her trip here to Buffalo! However, it didn't end there for this family... A month later, another puppy showed up at the creek by the store that looked just like them and was named River Grace. Then two weeks later, their mother showed up at the store and she was rescued by Paws Crosses as well. They knew her owners and when they let them know they had the mamma and her puppies, they laughed. They said she loves to roam and keeps having pups, but the puppies disappear. They said they wanted their dog back; however, they never came to get her and is officially rescued in Alabama as well.

From Rachel's Foster:
Rachel had a rough start and unfortunately had to come without her brother because he was too sick to travel. Luckily she had 2 other canine foster siblings to play with once arriving to Buffalo. Rachel was a sweet, loving little girl. She loved being held and played with. She was tiny but mighty! If she thought something was out in the yard, she was down the steps barking and protecting her foster siblings Jasper and Mikey while those two scaredy cats were hiding in the doorway. She differently knew how to take care of herself, but even though she was so independent, she also loved to be held.
