    Meet Rayna! She is the sweetest pup, but watch out for that tail! she is a wagger :)

    Miss Rayna came into AARCS’ care early December, when we received a call about a starving dog. The rescue crew jumped into action and found this sweet girl very emaciated with a big bloated belly — assuming parasites at the time due to poor nutrition. She came immediately to their call and sniffed every inch of them in case they had any food handy…The poor girl was just so hungry. Once Rayna was loaded up in the cab of the truck, she gave her rescuers big sloppy kisses the whole way to AARCS’ Safe Haven!

    After arriving at our shelter, Rayna was examined by our medical team as it was obvious she was not in great shape and potentially had an underlying medical condition requiring treatment… Turns out her big bloated belly was not what we initially thought — Rayna is full of puppies that are due any day now. She herself would have struggled to survive out there on her own let alone with a litter of puppies to boot!

    Rayna is now safe and warm in her whelping foster home with 6 sweet little babies to care for. She is a great mama, but loves her alone time with her foster family. She loves to play with toys, get lots of snuggles, and especially loves her treats. She is ridiculously smart, already knows how to sit and shake both paws.
