Phoebe has so far lead a difficult life, her teats drag along the ground now, she doesn’t appreciate loud noises and is very submissive, she does not know sit, stay or come in fact she doesn’t even know her own name.
It’s hard to estimate how many babies phoebe has been asked to produce but when her owners were done with her she was given one night out, in the back of a ute. A Good Samaritan bought her from the side of the road after answering an ad in a shopping centre. She was then put into foster care in my protection and her life got better.
She likes to crawl over to say hello, it’s as if she has been taught that she’s the lowest of the low. She stops…… pauses…… and if there’s no indication of a problem she might come a little closer.
She has a truly gentle nature and as each day goes by she crawls a little quicker over to me, she runs to see me at the front door, her tail wags so hard now it whacks her in the side of the belly.
My family has a lot of love to give, my wife could honestly save every animal in the world if I let her but this one dog particularly tugged at my heart and didn’t think I could be honest and say that I wanted to see her in a new home, so I filled out an application, I put the proposal to my family to adopt and asked if the CSRQ board could consider my application.
I can make a difference to many things in my life but to be able to make a difference to Phoebe through CSRQ is a huge life event for me, the people I work with at CSRQ are thoughtful, gentle, loving and professional. I thank my people friends and my fur friends who have given me the opportunity to make a difference in Phoebe’s life.
