I was in the shelter for SO long I don’t even my original family. I DO remember that they loved me very much, but then something happened and ...I’d rather not talk about it if that’s ok. I was SURE they were going to come for me, but the days turned into weeks and then into months. I was at that shelter for almost a full year! The people who worked there were so nice. They did everything they could to make sure I didn’t get depressed or end up on that terrible list. They always told me what a good boy I was and that I was really special.
I got to be on TV a few times as they tried to find me a loving home. Then one day I heard someone was coming for me! That I had been picked by Chaotic Spyder Foundation to help a child! I was going to be a service dog and I would never have to worry about being in a shelter or cage ever again.
They gave me an amazing foster mom who has been working with me and the trainer to show me lots of new things. I overheard them say I am almost ready to start the REALLY hard stuff that only service dogs get to learn. I am SO excited and a bit scared but I don’t want to let all those people who helped me stay alive in the shelter down. I know I can do this ...one paw at a time I’m going to do my best to make them proud.
