I wandered up to someone’s house in the country one day. I was very skinny and very sick. The nice lady that found me knew I needed more help than she could give me, so she contacted NHFP and they said they would help me. I’m sure glad they did because the vet told them I had a very bad illness called Parvo. I didn’t know what that meant, but I knew it didn’t sound good. So many other pups aren’t lucky enough to live after having Parvo, but I was one of the lucky ones. I had to stay at the vet office for a long time, in a room all by myself. But I couldn’t be around other animals because they’d get sick. So I stayed by myself and was quite lonely. I’ve been through a lot since I was a puppy and I don’t really trust people. I wasn’t treated well when I was young, and it’s something that I will never forget. I love to play with other dogs; that is my favorite thing to do. I’m not a snuggler and don’t really care for people touching me because I’m just scared. I would love a home with another dog to play with. Everyone deserves a chance to have a home of their own. Won’t you be the one to give ME one?
