I was starving and in danger from coyotes.
We have no idea how this beautiful young girl survived in a desert area just south of Las Vegas which is heavily populated with coyotes.
Residents in the community there saw her from time to time on a small mountain for more than a month. She was starving and just skin and bones, but they could not catch her. They feared the worst hearing the howls of the coyotes at night, knowing that she was ever weaker and less able to defend herself or outrun them.
A woman who is a friend of the organization and actively involved in animal rescue brought this situation to our attention. We assured her that if the dog could be caught that we would be sure to make room for her at Nevada SPCA and give her all of the rehabilitation she needs.
Finally, a volunteer heroically caught the dog and brought her to Nevada SPCA and we named her Megan.
Megan is a Vizsla & Rhodesian Ridgeback mix -- she has a ridge pattern on her back just like the latter breed -- with captivating gold eyes. She is now spayed, 2 years of age, gaining weight steadily, and debuting for adoption today at Nevada SPCA.
Megan needs a gentle, experienced home where her physical and emotional recovery from her abandonment can continue. Please ask for her by name when you visit.
