When I arrived, they gave me a comfy bed, food and water, and said I could take time to just “settle.” Between you and me, I “froze.” On that first day, I hardly moved. Here’s why: I’d been rescued from the interstate after dodging traffic for at least ten days. Then suddenly I was in this friendly, happy, comfy place. Could it be real? Yes, it is! Now I’ve made friends with people and other dogs. Oh, I’m still a little shy, but so much happier—free to be my playful, affectionate self. And they tell me that someday, someone will take me home and be my best friend ever! I’m a 1-year-old beautiful female, just 36 pounds, probably a Shepherd mix and definitely a sweetheart. And you—are you the one I’ll love forever?
