Well can I tell you about my story? Its sad but its true.... I started not feeling good and although I had lived with my family for as long as I can remember they didn't seem to care too much :(( I finally got to the point where I couldn't even get up :( So one day they picked me up got in the car and I thought OH good finally they are taking me to the doctor! But no that was not the case :( They took me to this big noisy building called a shelter and handed me to someone I had never met and turned around and left :( The guy took me back to a hall and put me in a cage. He was nice enough to go find a big fluffy blanket for me but then he just walked away too. I have to tell you I pretty much thought that I was going to die in the cage :(
A lady came walking by with another sad looking little dog named Zoo.... something it was a big name! The guy that put me in the cage looked at her and said any possible way you could take this one. I don't think she stands a chance here for too many hours.... The lady looked in my cage, smiled at me and said ABSOLUTELY we are not going to let this poor little thing die!! She scooped me up and put me in a really soft cuddle bed in her van and she put Zoo... on a really nice comforter and we started on a long car ride. I didn't mind I was glad to be somewhere soft that felt safe cause I REALLY didn't feel good!!
The lady took us to a Doctor! He looked at me and had a sad look and said 'I'm not promising anything' The lady said just do the best you can for our precious soul... I think she meant me :) I had never been called a precious soul before I had never really been called much of anything :( I spent the night and didn't feel much better and in the morning another Doctor looked at me and he looked sad too and he took this thing out of his pocket and started talking into it. He was saying 'I think you need to leave her go......' OHHHHH NOOOO I was scared! I didn't want to go anywhere yet I wasn't ready! Evidently the lady on the other end of the phone felt the same way I did because the Doctor said OK we can try and the next thing I knew they were taking pictures and giving me different meds and I started to feel MUCH better!! The Doctor looked really happy the next morning and that night the nice lady came back and scooped me up, gave me a big hug and took me to her house!
I stay with her now and she spoon feeds me because I really don't have the energy to eat out of the bowl yet and my teeth are REALLY bad so it hurts when they touch the bowl. The nice lady seems to understand so she just holds me and feeds me with her hands. I REALLY like her a lot cause she seems to love me! Its really nice to be loved! I'm getting stronger every day and she says when I am feeling really good they will give me a little nap and get the ouchy teeth out and she promises it won't hurt cause I will be 'snoozing' I hope she's right but frankly I don't think it could hurt much worse than they hurt now!
Thank you for caring and helping to pay for my care! The nice lady says we need to be really grateful for our supporters!
Please understand we do not adopt out to families with children under the age of 5. We do not adopt to renters. Some dogs will have fence requirements while others may not.
A dog is a lifetime commitment. The dogs in our system find themselves there, for the most part, because their humans did not have the same loyalty to them as they did to their owners :( We do not take the adoption process lightly, and will do everything in our power to make sure the dog is placed correctly the first time around for your sake and theirs. Thank you for choosing to adopt not shop!
