The following plea was posted on facebook through the Angels Among Us Pet Rescue page in hopes of finding a family for April. April is in Atlanta and has been letdown many times in finding a home. She is a female Beagle/Pointer desperately wants to have a family of her own in her senior years.
MEET THE MOST FORGOTTEN..
April can't catch a break to save her life. I wish people could just understand why she is the way she is. There are things that happen to people in their life that define them. We shouldn't judge. We should understand and know that these things are what make people so special and unique. We tend to think everyone should be perfect. Every dog should be perfect. Are we perfect? Same with dogs except for them it is harder to make sense of and change who they are and why they are the way they are. They are like children. April was saved from a high kill shelter on her last day. The person who saved her placed her in a board and train facility.
April was reactive to dogs so the training place used a shock collar to 'train" her not to react to dogs. Every time she reacted in any way to a dog, she was zapped. By the time we got her, she was left there and forgotten for 6 months. Her collar was even embedded in her neck. The shock therapy made her worse not better but we promised her now that she is an angel's dog now and that we would care for her and would never let that kind of treatment happen to her again. Well.. now we have a poor labby baby who has learned that every time a dog comes near her she associates it with pain so she is sooo far gone with being able to live with pets.
She, however is the MOST wonderful dog EVER with kids and people. In fact, if you have kids or grandkids- it would be her DREAM home! She is so great in a home too. Housetrained and a tidy little girl. She will sit at your feet. She smiles all the time just to show how much she LOVES human interaction. She has been in a couple of foster homes who swear that she is the best house guest but neither home was able to keep her bc of their own personal lifestyle changes (move and work). She keeps getting dumped for no fault of her own. We keep letting her down : (. Every time she thinks she is gonna get a family and a home, we yank it away.
This girl is so soul broken. This poor girl just can't seem to get her chance. I know she can't go with other pets so that makes it more difficult BUT she is so trustworthy with people and kids- that has to count for something right? Just because she needs to be an only furchild, can't she still find someone to love her and only her? Is there no one who just wants one child? She is sooo deserving. She is even a favorite where she boards. The owner and her kids love on her as much as they can and they beg us to get her a family. She is such a heartbreak for all of us. She has been there sooo long that she has fallen between the cracks. IF you feel you are a family who has a special BIG heart for the girl who BEGS harder than anyone else, Who really does deserve to have her chance more than anyone..
PLEASE give it to her! She needs her angel to come forward. To foster or adopt, please fill out an application at www.angelsrescue.org. ATLANTA AREA. Niki
