Dog Rescue Stories: Hallie Was Neglected and Covered in Wounds


Share post:

I’m Hallie, an 18 month old wolfhound cross living in Sydney, Australia!

I had a bit of a rough start in life. Originally, someone trained me to chase pigs in the bush. I was found neglected with terrible fleas and wounds because I’d scratched myself so badly. I’d never worn a collar, never been in a car, and probably never seen a vet.

The lovely team at Fetching Dogs (a foster based rescue in Sydney) rescued me from this horrible situation and put me into foster care.


It’s taken me the best part of this year to find my forever home. I was adopted twice before but returned (neither time was my fault). Then, the best thing happened!

My forever mum, Hannah, spotted me on a website for adoption! It was love at first sight (for both of us)! I’m very happy in my new home and mum says that I’ve helped her heal after a tough year, so it’s win-win for both of us!


I love walkies (especially on the beach), and have a couple of big dog friends who I LOVE to play with. I still have a lot of fear based issues but Mum and I (and a trainer) are working hard to help me overcome them.

I’ve improved a lot since I’ve come to my new home.

Mum says to remind everyone ADOPT, DON’T SHOP!
