I don't really remember how I ended up homeless and living on the streets but one day my luck changed. I wandered up to a parking lot that had tons of giant semi-trucks. I was in a lot of pain so laid down and didn't want to get back up again to walk or stand. There was a goofy dog running around and fortunately he turned out to be really sweet. The nice people working there were feeding him and he began carrying his food over to where I was laying and shared with me.
When the nice people noticed me and that I was hurt, they reached out to The Street Dog Project for help and they came and rescued my friend (Grimely) and me! We took a car ride to the v.e.t. and got all checked out, vaccinated and soon we'll be "fixed." X-rays revealed that I have a broken hip but the good news is that now I'm on pain meds so I can walk and am already feeling better! We're giving it a few weeks to see if it'll heal on it's own and if it doesn't, I'll have surgery.
I'm having fun at the vet but I heard that life gets even better once I move to a loving foster or forever home. I'm a really sweet girl who was shy initially but warmed up quickly now that I realize I'm safe. I'm looking forward to a family of my own! We're guessing I was born around Sept 2015 and I weigh in around 55 lbs. Please email email@example.com for info on fostering or adopting me (it would be a foster-to-adopt until we get through my medical needs). I like Grimley but it's totally ok for us to be split up.
