found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with cats.
My name is Joy and I am a lovely petite Medium rough coat sable and white female Border Collie with a tail dock and front and rear dew claws removed. My weight is 35 pounds. I was dropped off in the night box of the county pound. My family just dropped me in over the high fense. I kept asking them roooowhy rooowhy are rooo leaving me. I watched the headlights until they disappeared. I did not know what would happen to me next. I had just had a litter of puppies and I don't know where they went either. Did they go to a place like this also? I was scared. I could hear barking from inside the building and I was afraid that another dog would come and harm me. I stayed very still and waited for the sunrise. It wasn't too long after the light returned that a car pulled up and a man got out and looked over at me. He put a leash on me and took me inside. I barked at all the other dogs because they were making so much noise. Then one of them told me that they were barking to be fed and so I started to bark for breakfast too. I wondered if my Family would come and get me soon and so I waited and watched the sunset and the sunrise again. They never came back. A day came when there was a lot of people coming and going and the ringing noice where people go to and talk outloud to themselves kept ringing and ringing. I barked at the people to get their attention but they were busy taking dogs from either side of me and from across the way from me. Where were they all going? I started to get afraid again because there were only a few of us left and the others were all quite and not saying anything. The silence that I had wanted since I came here was now something that made me more afraid. What was going to happen to me now! The sun was starting to go down, that was when the doors closed for the night and all the people left. All of us dogs would sit in the dark and talk to one another. But there was no one near me to talk to and the new dogs that had arrived today were hiding in their crates. I was going to be all alone a sudden fear swept through me. Then all at once the door opened and in the doorway stood a woman. I barked as loud as I could. She looked at me and turned away. I kept barking. I needed someone to know I was here. Then the nice man that had taken me the first day came and opened my cage door. I ran out and down the hall and there was the woman standing holding a leash....my heart jumped Leashes mean Walks with People!!!
The Woman loaded me into her van were I found a nice man that held me in his arms and made me feel safe. Off we went down the road. I know that my life is about to change. I know that I will never see My First Family again but somewhere down deep in my paws I know that I am going to be ok. I'm safe, someone cared enough to come and rescue me. And one day someone will love me and I will learn to love again.
