This little girl was at a shelter for a whooping 14 months. I am sure that is not a record, nor is it one that is sought after by any animal. Was she frightened? Yes. Was she handle-able? No. Was she very scared? Yes. She was in good shape physically, but she wanted nothing to do with anyone. I would say she was close to being semi-feral in the ways that she acted out. We got her loaded, and that went fairly easy. She just wanted anywhere but around us, and the kennel looked like the easy way out, so in she went. I unloaded her where she will stay until her ride later this week which will take her to a wonderful rescue that has had much luck with others coming from similar circumstances. With the right person working with her I know she will come around in no time. A big thank you to the shelter manager who passed on many chances to kill her, for keeping the faith that someone would come for her, and they did. Thank you for not killing her. It’s so easily done yet harder to say no.
Well kind of, there are seven and they think they are pretty cool. I guess if one had mange and was bald, it might be a better fit, but we are glad they are for the most part healthy and there was not a grouchy one amongst them. For that, I am grateful. I do get tired of the bites and scratches. I feel like a pinata at times. Well these guys were very glad to finally be leaving and taking their first steps towards a new home awaiting them down the road somewhere, we hope sooner rather than later. Good luck guys, you so deserve it.
