Piglet was a stray dog found seriously injured in the streets of Tijuana in Mexico. One look and anyone could tell that she was in a horrible state. Luckily for her, local rescuers found her.
Eventually, Piglet was transferred to the care of Northwest Dog Project, a small nonprofit dog rescue organization in Eugene, Oregon. Despite the sudden change in her environment, she did not feel frightened. She trusted that the people around her won’t hurt her, and she knew they would help her feel better and she wasn’t wrong.
The puppy was in agony but the pain that she suffered wasn’t enough reason for her to lose her faith in people. She remained trusting, loving, and sweet. When she met her newfound friends at the rescue center, all she wanted was to cuddle with them. Even the vet that looked after her attested to her sweet and gentle nature.
Soon, Piglet moved into her foster home. She got along great with her foster dog siblings and loved playing with them but she chose to spend most of her time snoozing. And when she took a nap, she was always curled up beside Grace, her foster mom.
Piglet had such extreme medical needs. Besides her injuries, she was also deaf and half-blind. But because she was in good hands, she made tremendous progress, and soon, she was ready for a new home.
Northwest Dog Project received tons of applications the moment Piglet was up for adoption. Every family and individual promised her the best life. But in the end, the rescue organization decided she’d do best with Kit and Robyn, her forever moms.
Piglet loved everyone she met. She hugged them, cuddled with them, and licked them on the face. But when she met her new moms, she was a little extra. She was instantly drawn to them so she jumped right into their arms.
Despite her tragic past, Piglet never lost hope. She always had a clear and positive view of life.
