Hi! My name is Sawyer. I was a stray that they brought into the shelter in Chicago. I was very confused as to why I was there. A lot of people kept telling me I would find a rescue to take me home but it wasn't happening. I began to wonder why I wasn't getting to go home like some of the other dogs. Was it because of my fur color? Maybe it was my big ears? I was very sad at having to sit in that small cage day in & day out. It was very loud too & that didn't make me happy either. I was there for a long time & I knew my time was coming to an end. I heard some people say I was on the "list". I wasn't sure what that meant but it didn't sound good.
I found out I had 48 hours left to be alive. No one wanted me & the volunteers felt really bad. They kept telling me they were still trying to find someone for me. Then it happened. These 2 girls were at the shelter looking at some other dogs they were going to rescue. The volunteers asked them to take a look at me also. I put on my bestest puppy smile & wagged my tail nervously. Would they like me? Oh please please like me!! They took me out and gave me hugs and kisses and asked if I would like to go home and they would find me my "forever home". I was very excited to be leaving!! I went to a foster home and got to play with other dogs & puppies and go for walks and play with my foster parents kids! It was great! I was hopefully being adopted by this really nice lady who had another dog that I really liked to play with. She was "fostering" me first to see how it went. Her dog though got really sick and has Cancer so I had to go to boarding because my other foster mom can't take me back. I don't mind it so much. I get to go on walks & have other dogs to talk to but it isn't home. I just want a home of my own where I can snuggle at someones feet & lay by their side. Maybe play some ball in the yard & even play with a human or doggie brother or sister. Please don't pass me by! The girls saw something in me that no one else did. Unconditional love. I hope you see it too!!
