One pup had a lust for life. Cora was a passionate corgi, all 28 pounds of her. And her owner was exactly the same. Madison Palm knew how to live life to the full. Together, the pair explored and adventured on a regular basis. But, this wasn’t always their story. She had only been Madison’s baby for a year. You see, Cora had a dark past - one that nobody thought she would overcome.

For Better Or For Worse

Madison knew what she was getting herself into when she found Cora. There was no way this little dog would bounce back with the past she had. People warned her that dogs with rough pasts battle to be reintegrated. This did cause Madison to question her initial decision. But when she looked at Cora’s lovable face, there was no turning back - that was until one man caused Cora's pasts to catch up with her.

Cora’s Story

Even though she was living it up now, this wasn’t always the case for Cora. You see, for the first seven years of her life, Cora lived at a puppy mill. All she was expected to do was bare litter after littler. This can really take its toll on an animal. And Cora was no exception. The countless litters had taken its toll on her. Both physically and mentally. Then a miracle happened.

Bitter Sweet Saving Grace

Luckily, Cora was rescued from the puppy mill. She was then taken to an animal shelter. But things only got worse for her there. Cora was an older dog. She was nearing her 8th birthday. As far as adoption goes, older dogs don’t generally make the cut. People want puppies. That was Cora’s whole reason for existing in the first place. And if dogs at shelters aren’t adopted, there’s only one place for them to go. The other side.

Due to Cora’s past, she was initially quite a handful. Cora had been nothing more than a business to her previous owners. She had received absolutely no love and attention. Now, that was what she craved. She constantly doted on Madison. She sought attention more than a regular animal would. But Madison knew what she had signed up for. But Cora’s nature was truly amazing. Something Madison would see at the airport.

Even though Cora trusted the world, Madison did not. She knew where her poor pup had come from. Even though Cora had forgotten this, Madison could not.

But one day, Cora made Madison’s heart pound.
