This would be my little lass Saxon <3
She a little German Shepherd- Colly mix that we got from the RSPCA two years ago this August :3 She's some where between 6-9 years old. Vets can't age her properly because at some time her front teeth were worn down, which apparently makes it even harder. We think she's about 8, but she still acts like a pup ^^
Saxon has had a pretty rough life until she was rescued- she was beaten, shouted at, and eventually her previous owners moved house and left her and another dog to starve to death. From what the RSPCA told us, she only survived because the people next door to her house put food through the letter box for the two of them.
As a result from being starved, the RSPCA think that Sax is missing all her front teeth because of being so hungry and desperate- she probably tried to eat anything and everything, most likely stones, bricks, coal, etc.
Her lack of teeth causes her tounge to fall out when she's tired. She's also learnt that it gets her a cuddle ^^
She has some issues that are improving- she steals food and eats as if there's no tomorrow- a side affect from being starved, and she has a fear of strange men.
Her front and back right legs seem to have been injured at some point in the past too.
We've also had to teach her all basic obedience, trust and confidence in humans, especially men, and even how to play. That's how miserable it must have been for her and the other dog. She didn't know how to play >.<
But she's a happy girl now and smiles :D And sleeps. And cuddles XD
