I am already neutered, purebred, and up to date with shots.
Hello, my name is Wallaby and there are a lot of things I wannabe ... among them, the light of your life, your protector, and your best friend. I am a 3 year old purebred Cocker Spaniel with a natural (undocked) tail. Until I came into Rescue, I did not experience much of anything good in life. Most people were quite unkind to me, hence my ability to trust was badly impaired. Sad though it may be, I truly did not know what it meant to love or be loved. I was bounced from one home to the next, and every time I came to a new place, I hoped that someone there would treat me as a cherished friend. Sadly, that was not to be. After just one month in my last home, I was surrendered to the Manhattan pound. There were no takers there for me either, so I was surrendered to Abandoned Angels. In this place called Rescue, I have finally found a soft spot to lay my weary head, safe in the knowledge that no one will mistreat me in any way. Slowly, slowly, I have begun to trust those around me. One day, after many weeks, I felt something new and unusual in my heart, which I somehow realized must be love for those volunteers who have been caring for me. Everyday, they ask me the same important question: 'Wallaby, who do you wannabe?' For a long time, I did not know the answer. But then one day, it came to me, gently making its way into my subconscious as I dreamed a perfect dream, the one I used to have as a very small puppy. When I woke, I suddenly knew what I wanted in life and who I wanted to be. Looking up at my caregivers, I relayed the answer through eyes that were no longer just sad, but at long last somewhat hopeful: 'After all I have been through, I still wannabe someone's treasured pet. I want the gift of unconditional love.'
If you can offer me your whole heart, then I am prepared to put my paw in your trustworthy hand, either as a foster dog or as an adopted member of your family. I am neutered, microchipped, up-to-date on all shots, and have tested negative for heartworm. I will go home professionally groomed and with a new leash and collar. If you would like to take my leash in your hand and lead the way to my new beginning, please email email@example.com and request an application. I will be checking my inbox daily.
Love (at long last),
