This is a tough one for us, so please have your tissue available before reading as we have shed many.. Precious, sweet ShyAnne came into Cane Corso Rescue in mid April 2015. After 7 years of faithful service and puppy rearing, this very special girl was DUMPED in a high kill shelter in New York City by the very family she produced and reared puppies for. This is the same family who reaped the monetary benefits from the sale of each pup, who continued to live the good life at her expense. . This is the same family who dumped their faithful companion in a kill shelter…in LABOR. Yep, this is what ShyAnne knew as family! Our hopes is that a REAL family opens their hearts and home to her so she receives the love and care she so rightfully deserves in her golden years. But her story of despair isn’t over yet, as while in the shelter and shortly after being evaluated during intake ShyAnne gave birth to a single ‘miracle’ pup that was named Baby Brooklyn by her loving foster family. ShyAnne did everything right, she was a super mom in spite of those conditions. CCR volunteers rallied to the cause and Mom and Baby where moved out of the shelter within the first two days. Unfortunately, Baby Brooklyn took a turn for the worse on the 8th day of her existence. On the 9th day, we had hope that she would recover from the upper respiratory infection she acquired. On the 10th day, Baby Brooklyn received her angel wings and crossed the rainbow bridge. She was loved and supported by many especially her Momma, ShyAnne. So now in addition to grieving the loss of her human family, Momma grieves the loss of her miracle baby. BUT there is silver lining to the story of ShyAnne as ShyAnne has been RESCUED and is residing in a foster home with a fabulous family.
ShyAnne is currently residing with 2 adults, 3 children, 3 cats, a male Corso, and 6 chickens. Her foster family just raves about her intelligent, easy going nature. CCR is focusing on her medical needs as she needs to be spayed, have a mammary tumor removed, and an aural hematoma tended to. Once this is done, she will be ready for adoption.
