MAPLE

..

First Foster

Maple was Esme’s first foster dog. She arrived from Spain in a truly deplorable state, emaciated and terrified of everything Maple was a very traumatised young dog. She spent three months being rehabilitated by Esme before going to a wonderful home in the countryside where her progress continues to this day. She wore a blue jumper for a long time due to being so thin and bony ☹
