Sweet Lady was brought into the APL by a Good Samaritan with a large litter of puppies. Sweet Lady had been living by the Good Samaritan's workplace, and the woman had been putting out large bags of food to feed her. It turns out that Sweet Lady was taking the bags of food into the garage, where she was keeping her pups, to ensure they had enough food. Sweet Lady's puppies found homes right away but Sweet Lady turned out to be Heartworm Positive. She underwent months of treatment in the home of an APL Foster Care Volunteer. She won the hearts of many staff members and volunteers and one APL staff member, who adopted her!
