The coonhound/Labrador retriever mix was rescued from an Oklahoma City dog hoarding situation by Country Roads Animal Rescue Society, and she gave birth to a litter of puppies without ever stepping foot inside a house.
That is, until her foster mother showed her how important a warm bed is. Sundae’s face brightened up with relief as soon as she sat to sleep.
Sundae felt safe in the knowledge that she was safe. “We’ve had her for about a week, and you would never know that she’s never been an indoor dog before,” Sundae’s foster mother, Mugglequeen, wrote on Reddit. She is quite polite indoors, quite gentle, and entirely potty trained.
Because of her sweetness and the wonderful shades of chocolate, vanilla, and caramel on her face, Mugglequeen gave her the name Sundae.
Sundae was initially afraid of men, but after her foster mother placed a pair of her boyfriend’s shorts on the bed, Sundae’s favorite spot, she began to warm up to him. Sundae, who is now the most affectionate baby, frequently cuddles with her foster mother. She loves to lie as close to me as she can in bed, Mugglequeen remarked. I think she’s just trying to make up for the last eight or so years of lack of affection.
Sundae is now receiving the medical treatment she requires after going for such a long time without it. Her veterinarian discovered that she is heartworm positive and needs dental work despite being otherwise healthy.
Sundae’s puppies are being cared for by other foster families, so her sole responsibility now is to wait for the perfect family to fall in love with her.
According to Mugglequeen, her ideal family would lead a very relaxed lifestyle and have plenty of patience to support her as she continues to gain confidence and come out of her shell. She will continue to be in my custody until she finds the perfect, forever family.
