Chichester rescue seeks home for dog saved from kill shelter

The 4-year-old German shorthaired pointer mix arrived at Live and Let Live Farm, a nonprofit rescue organization in Chichester, last year.
All of the puppies have since been placed into loving homes, but Dolly hasn’t been so lucky.
An examination by Suncook veterinarian Fiona Reeves revealed the young dog had most likely been hit by a car at some point in her life, and had been housed in a kennel that was too small for her to move around properly.
For several months, Dolly lived with a volunteer foster family, but was returned to the Chichester shelter after her foster dad’s health issues meant he was no longer able to care for the canine.During that time, Dolly got loose on several occasions and the gentle, brown-eyed pooch quickly befriended one of her foster dad’s neighbors, Brian Morin.
“She’d get off her leash and come straight to my door,” the Chichester resident said. “She just melted my heart.”
While Morin said he wished Dolly could come live with him forever, that isn’t possible due to a family member’s allergies.
“She just wants to be your best friend,” Morin said. “She’s an active dog, but she loves to morph into a lap dog, leaning in for a snuggle.”
Castagno said Dolly would do best “in an active home with people committed to her training.” He noted that the best home would likely be one where Dolly would be the only pet since her past history has led her to be extremely protective of her food around other animals.
