Tusk was taken in by volunteers at Much Love Animal Rescue, who immediately rushed her to the vet to get the help she needed. Tusk had an infection in her uterus and needed surgery, and luckily, it was extremely successful. Once her health had been all taken care of, what she needed next was a loving home to retire to.
Much Love Animal Rescue took Tusk to an adoption event one day, and that's where she met her new mom, Amanda Forth.
"I wasn't looking to get a dog, but was walking to the farmers' market in Santa Monica, stopped to look at the dogs who were outside at the weekly rescue pop-up, and it was love at first sight," Forth told The Dodo. "I couldn't let go of her - she was too sweet."
