To My Former Owner
Why did you abandon me? Why did you not keep me on heartworm prevention? Why did you abandon me when I already only have one working eye? Why did you let me fend for myself? I thought you loved me? I thought we would be together forever, and instead, I have had quite a rough last few months thanks to your carelessness.
I never wanted to be a stray. I never wanted to be homeless. I never wanted to be without you. You were everything I ever knew. I never imagined a life without you. I never imagined a life where I would go hungry. I never imagined trying to navigate the streets with only one eye. I never imagined trying to dodge cars. I never imagined being someone who had to beg for help. Even when I came upon people, most just ignored me. I lost everything I had ever known and had no idea how to live the life of a stray.
It was a stroke of luck that a nice lady found me wandering around and ended up bringing me inside. It was so nice to get out of the heat and be inside. She was very kind and had a toddler that I adored. I thought that I had finally found a family again, but sadly it wasn't in the cards. The lady who found me was renting and was not allowed to keep me. She tried hard to find a place for me and ended up reaching out to PPFT. They agreed to take me in, and soon my life changed yet again.
I have settled into my foster home nicely. A vet trip revealed that I am in fact blind in my right eye but thankfully it doesn't seem to be causing me any pain. It was also discovered that I was heartworm positive. So, that sucked. Not only did I have to face being abandoned but also the fact that you didn't protect me while I was with you. Now, I have to go through a very expensive and lengthy treatment.
I just wish that I knew why. Why did you put me through all of this? Why did you welcome me to your family only to abandon me? Did you just decide that I didn't matter anymore? I thought family was forever not just "until." I want to be mad at you. I want to say you never mattered. I want to wish that I never met you...but that isn't me. I loved you, and I am hurt but while you might have not loved me as much as I did you...it was still real to me.
We cannot change the past, and maybe that is a good thing. At least now, I am being treated for those nasty heartworms and I have a chance at finding my true forever family. And that brings me to why I wrote you this letter. Before I can focus on my future, I have to let go of my past. I have to let go of the hurt. I have to let go of the whys and hows. What is done is done, and I only hope that you will do better in the future.....
To My Future Family:
My name is Nash and I am a 2-year-old, 79lb male Great Pyrenees mix. I am a very calm and quiet boy. I do get excited about walks and will sometimes do Zoomies when my foster mom gets back home from work because I am so excited that she came back! I will play/wrestle with my foster sibling a couple of times a day. The rest of the time I am just chilling. I am not really into toys, probably because I didn't grow up with them and don't really know what they are. I have not had the chance to play in any water, so am unsure if I am a water dog.
I love being with my people, but do believe that I would be happiest with a more calm and quiet lifestyle. I would probably be fine with a few adventures outside the home every now and then, but overall I would consider myself to be a homebody. I do need help getting in the car but once in ride pretty well. I may drool a little though. I do enjoy going on walks, and would probably also love going hiking. I am calm and easygoing when meeting new people. I never jump or get crazy. I just stand for pets and love from my new friends. I am very friendly when meeting new dogs on our walks. My foster mom says that I am easy to control and that I keep calm.
I am potty trained and can be trusted to free-roam the house. I am being fostered around other dogs and cats and do well with them. I also do well with children but think they should be older as fast movements do scare me.
I think that about sums up everything that you should know about me. If you are interested in learning be sure to submit an application for me and then you will also get to review the evaluation form my foster mom filled out for me! I bet you can find some other details there about me!

FROM HIS FOSTER MOM 🐾 ↓
Nash is a sweet and gentle guy and goofy at times. When he moves he reminds me of a cross between a bunny rabbit and a Clydesdale. He’s light on his feet and so elegant when he moves.
He came in as a stray and I think he’s had a pretty rough go of it so far in life. He shows tendencies of being abused - he’s a little nervous about new situations and sometimes he dips his head like he thinks he’s going to get hit. But mostly he is just eager to get his love and be part of the family. He sleeps by my bed on his dog bed - he’s not interested in being on my bed. He loves his walks and his time outside. He does have an issue with his right eye. The vet has told me that he’s blind in that eye - likely due to some trauma earlier in his life. It doesn’t bother him at all and I don’t really even notice it at all. He will likely need some lifelong eye drops (not very expensive) and annual checkups with the vet to “keep an eye on it”.
Nash would be living his best life if he was in a home with a loving and relatively calm family. I am sure he would be fine as the only dog of the house, but he sure would be happier with a friend to hang out and play with. If there were kids in the house, it’d probably be best if they were on the older side. He does great with cats - he’s interested in them but doesn’t overwhelm them. He needs a yard to run around in but it doesn’t have to be huge. Just somewhere he can do some zoomies and roll around in the grass. It’s ok if his family works out of the house as he doesn’t get nervous or anxious when his people leave - but he does get really happy when they return home.
