Two years ago, My Mama and Daddy, went to 3 shelters, looking for an older, black dog. They are older, really older and needed a dog that fit their lifestyle.
They looked for black dogs because they are the hardest to be adopted from the shelters.
Mama said it could be because black dogs look scary OR that black dogs are hard to see in dark kennels, and are not noticed as much.
I had been in a shelter 3 times, and was in the office of the adoption coordinator because I had been attacked by a dog that a lady drove up and when they did not have room, because of overcrowding, she threw the leash down and drove off. That dog was so upset he ran over and jumped on me while I was walking with a volunteer.
The Lady went down the hall telling my Pawrentz she had just the dog, 5 and 1/2 years old and Black.
she opened the office door , below borrowed from the internet.
and when it opened The middle photo below is what my pawrentz saw, they both said LOOK AT THOSE EYES and I spoke to them in eye speak
and after I climbed on Mamas lap on the bench she sat down on, and did so more eye speak with her and Daddy, they took me home.
They promised me I would never go back to a shelter again, 3 times was enough. And now I am 7 and 1/2 and have had the life of a King.
They did not notice my STAR until mama took this photo when we got home from the shelter.
I became and will always be their STAR.
I am very ill now, diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure, and they still love me and feed me boiled liver and pumpkin and ride me because I can't walk anymore.
This is a link to the Shelter I came from and right now today they have 23 black dogs waiting.
look below, that is the map of shelters that are no more than 7 miles from my home.
they are all full to the maximum.
Clear the Shelters, Spread the Word.
There are too many pets in shelters. #SeeThe Light
The shelter was scary and loud and cold and hot and I was attacked by a bad dog. There are MILLIONS of dogs and cats in shelters. Some shelters even have rats and rabbits and birds, it seems many adopt pets and then don't want them any more... Also, if you want a special breed of dog, there is a rescue for every breed. Just search for them.
Today we join with #RemmeberMeThursday and ask any and all who want a cat or dog, to #SeeTheLight and adopt a shelter pet. We are thankful for all 5 of our rescue dogs, see the tabs above for the ones that are now angels over the RB Bridge..
We are joining RememberMeThursday annual event HERE
