Marge the Terrier, picked up as a stray with her 6-month-old puppy, came into the care of Hope Rescue and it soon became apparent that she was already pregnant again, another tragic victim of irresponsible breeding. Hope’s welfare team wasn’t surprised when no-one came forward to claim her as dogs like Marge are often abandoned just when they need their owners the most.
