Abigail: Rescue to champion

Email News Alerts

A dog that was once seemingly left for dead in the woods is now a state champion.

Abigail, a stray Australian Shepherd mix, was brought to the Headwaters Animal Shelter a little over a year ago.


Adopted by the Stack family and trained by Molly, “Abby” was taken to the state fair this past year, winning grand champion in both the “obedience” and “rally” competitions.

But it wasn’t always ribbons and pictures for Abby, having come a long way since her rocky beginning.
