Arizona dog survives all odds after being found on the reservation, now she needs a home

A dog who was attacked on the Gila River Indian Reservation in Laveen has survived all odds and the person who rescued her is looking to find her a forever home.

Jordan Bader took it upon herself to rescue the dog in February, who she lovingly calls "Mama Girl," when she saw a Facebook post that said the dog had been attacked and needed help. Bader got the OK from an official on the reservation and was able to rescue her.

"She was a reservation dog that kind of just roamed around and went to multiple people's backyards," Bader said.

The three-year-old pup almost didn't survive the attack.

"She could not walk and was going septic. We rushed her to the emergency vet where I thought she was going to need to be euthanized due to her wounds but to my surprise they said she will heal," Bader said.

Because Mama Girl was attacked by a group of dogs, she became fearful of fellow canines. She'd do best in a home where she can be the only pet.

Mama girl is spayed, microchipped, has all her vaccines and a veterinarian cleared her of any health issues. Bader says Mama girl is a Pitbull and Shar Pei mix.

She’s potty-trained, loves everyone she meets and isn't destructive. There will be a rehoming fee.

Bader herself has worked in rescue for six years, both independently and with organizations. She took Mama Girl on independently.
