Oh my, oh my—I’ve lost an eye! I had a terrible injury and my owner couldn’t afford to get me the medical treatment I desperately needed. But, lucky me! I was brought to the HRA where the kind doctors gave me great emergency care. Now I’m doing just fine and they tell me that I will soon be as good as new. My biggest challenge now is to find the forever home they tell me I might have. But, after such a traumatic time, I’m a little shy and fearful. So, when you come to meet me, please give me a little extra time to feel comfortable and confident enough to show you what a great companion I would be. And, I’ve had the good luck to be lovingly sponsored by a donor. That means that I will get extra attention to make sure that I am ready for the wonderful new home that I hope awaits me. If it could be yours, that would make me really happy, and I promise to bring you many years of love and friendship in return.
