What is the worst thing that ever happened to you? Whatever that is times it by 10 and that would be the worst thing that ever happened to me. I was born without the ability to hear and do you know how much that sucks? My siblings always heard mom when she was calling and I would always get left behind but I started catching on to their body movements. Well, I was taken from my home and dropped off in a totally different place. I guess my former owners didn't want to deal with me anymore. Being dumped is one thing, but being dumped and being deaf is a totally different story. I didn't know my surroundings, I didn't know the first thing about surviving on my own, I was alone, and I had no clue what to do. I hung out there for awhile, I became very skinny and soon my precious coat was nothing but matts and tangles. I soon developed a really really bad skin condition, also known as mange and on top of it contracted heartworms. So now on top of being deaf, I am completely lost, starving, and very uncomfortable. I finally decided to try and wander around and believe it or not this was the scariest part even after all I had been through. Trying to go somewhere new with no one to help you is absolutely terrifying but to not know when something is sneaking up on you or hear some predator rustling in a bush can be a death sentence. I am so glad I did though because my guardian angel finally showed up, I was shaved down, started on medicine for my mange and was off to an amazing foster home.
I was given a name, Whisper and I think it fits me very well. Before I came into rescue I was just a whisper in the wind and now for the first time I am being heard loud and clear. My foster home has fattened me up, and have been working with me on hand signals. It can be very frustrating sometimes but I am getting the hang of it. I am a well mannered lady, and do well with other dogs, cats, and I LOVE kids. They are so amazing and I just want to love and cuddle with them all day long. I am housebroken and do not chew, and am just a total love-bug!
I have been through so much but am only 4 years old. I have been treated for heartworms and my fur has come in again. I do have a chronic skin condition though and my new home will need to keep me on a supplement called Apoquel to keep my skin conditions from coming back. I am looking for a wonderful home that doesn't mind working with me when it comes to hand signals and giving me my medication so I can stay healthy! I want a family who will love me as much as I will them! If you are my family please put in an adoption app at http://www.txpyrs.org/TGPRescue/Public/AppServlet?COMMAND=HOME
The very big picture below is what I look like now, aren't I drop dead gorgeous??! The other pics are what I looked like after my shave, you can see how skinny I was. What an amazing transformation, don't you agree? I have come far, and I hope I am not asking to much in my new home but I really do hope you will adot me because after all I have been through I am finally ready to settle down and be truly 100% happy with the people I love most in this world.
