Hi! My name is Taffy. I'm shouting inside and no one seems to hear me. Please… listen closely to my story.
I want to tell you many things so that you will understand me, adopt me, and let me be your forever companion.
I am about five years old now, with gorgeous amber eyes and a handsome taffy-colored coat. Four years ago I was found by Castaway Critters Pet Rescue running along a busy highway. I was only a little over a year old at the time. I was very hungry, thin, covered with fleas and pregnant. They took me to the shelter where I had three puppies; one of which died but the other two were adopted into loving homes. In spite of all my issues, I am a beautiful girl (both inside and out).
You probably know that my being a pit mixed-breed scares people because of all the bad press we’ve been given. It's unfortunate because I’m actually extremely sweet and really love people. As with most dogs of any breed, there are some dogs I just don’t like, so I am looking for a parent who wants an only child. I love to be hugged, take walks in the park and have my tummy rubbed.
Because the shelter has so many animals staying here, I am often overlooked as most people want those “foo foo” little dogs that come in. So here I remain, 4 years later, with decent accommodations but with little to look forward to except my next meal and the hope that someone will take me for a walk and then to McDonalds for a burger. Even this doesn't happen often because the volunteers and workers at the shelter are so busy helping all the animals. I understand that, but it still makes me sad.
I’m so sad sometimes that I don’t even feel like eating and am hardly interested in treats anymore. All I want is for someone to love me like I would love them. Let me ride shotgun with the wind blowing in my face and take me home.
One time I went home with another pit. The family had a mom and dad and children. It was so much fun and I even got to sleep on their bed! Unfortunately, this was a temporary situation because the people couldn’t keep me forever. They liked me a lot, but I found out that’s what fostering means. When I had to go back to the shelter I was depressed because I loved that home and family. I really want a home of my own.
Please help me, I’m so mentally desperate for someone to love me and take care of me. I am begging you for a chance to prove what a wonderful friend I will be. I can show you that I’m really a “foo foo” dog in a pit bull costume. If I were a human, I would be crying and you would see and hear me… and you would take action. Won’t you give me a chance?
PLEASE… DO YOU HEAR ME?
If you do, give my friend Barbara a call at 706-745-0035 and ask her about me!! You can also email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
. I would be so grateful if you could give me the forever home I so rightly deserve and desire
. Should you not be able to help at this time, thank you for reading my story and keep me in your thoughts. Maybe you know of someone who can help so please forward my story.
Make me a happy dog forever and I will give you all my love.
