Raven is a 4 year old mix-bred female from the streets of Cape Town. When we took her in initially she was so scared and anxious, she didn't eat or walk. It took 6 weeks before she was walking (not comfortably) by lead. We were fearful that we would have to say goodbye early. BUT just one day she started eating and even walked and sniffed around the house. Soon she was chasing birds, playing with her toys, socializing with the family and other doggos on the beach, and sleeping on mom's bed. She is now a protective, well-tempered, loving angel. She's come so so far from an abused street dog to a loving member of her big family. I couldn't imagine a life without my running buddy, best friend, nap-partner, food-mucher Raven.
