Hi, I’m MeMe, and amazingly, I am waiting for adoption at Buckeye’s Missions and Sanctuary in Brunswick, Ohio. This means you, yes YOU, or someone you know might be the lucky person to take me home!
Seriously, I’m pretty sure once this post goes out there into Internet land, the lines will be AROUND THE BLOCK. Even if it’s snowing. Even if it’s a BLIZZARD.
I’m that rare combination of a dog who will go out skateboarding and running with you, then come home, flop down on the sofa, and watch Netflix. I love playing with humans – your opposable thumbs are SO CUTE! – but I also have a game I play by myself, where I throw my rope with a ball in the middle of it up in the air and catch it.
I am super-affectionate with people and can live with a male dog, but I have to be your own and only girl dog.
So beat the rush, folks… just email firstname.lastname@example.org and set up a meeting. And hey… TELL A FRIEND! They’ll be really upset if they find out and someone else snapped me up!
Meet Mason. Mason is an obvious case of neglect. I know people can be sensitive about neglect images, but I felt he needed to be shared with the world. He is a beautiful dog with a beautiful soul, there’s no denying that. And this is the reality of the world. A sad one, but it is one.
Mason was left in someone’s basement, locked in a kennel. I can’t imagine what that life was like, but Mason has a new life now. He was transferred to a rescue who will be taking excellent care of him getting him back into shape and letting him be what he is - a beautiful dog. Mason has already captured so many hearts, mine included. I have never seen a neglect case like this in person so it was quite a shocker to me. I was afraid to touch him at first, unsure if I would hurt him since he looked so fragile. He, however, was not bashful to get attention from us. He was excited to go outside with us, dancing around his kennel when we stopped in front of him. He demanded the love he deserves when we were outside, butting his head against us and leaning against us, even crawling on my brother’s lap.
Mason is the perfect example of how shelter dogs are not damaged. He had a terrible life, that is clear. He of all dogs should have been fearful of people. He, however, didn’t shy from the people around him. He forgave people so easily despite what people (if they can be called that) did to him. Mason, like other shelter dogs, is not damaged. He had a rough life but is on his way to a wonderful life thanks to those who saved him and those who are offering him help.
I waited to post this for when I got an update on him - Mason has put on some weight! He is also looking a lot more alert and energetic from what I have seen of his updates!
Let’s all wish Mason a great life and a great recovery from his past.
Wish I could show you the things I’ve seen… her eyes are burning in my mind and I can’t do anything about it. Might as well be a ghost. It’s like if you don’t talk about it, somehow it doesn’t happen? Their lives should not be in vain. They aren’t. I will always remember you.
A1432470 SALLY - I’m not sure if she made it out, alive. :(
To see Sally’s video, please click here: http://youtu.be/L_ysUVUVKaM Sally is a sweet as can be 1 year-old SPAYED Female White with Brown spots HOUND and Pit bull terrier mix. Sally had puppies and was a wonderful mom, but her puppies have now been weaned and she is URGENT having been in the shelter since Oct. 19th! We are IN LOVE with Sally. She’s the perfect dog as far as we can tell. She seems great with other dogs, great with humans and we cannot say enough great things about her. She just wants to be in your lap or beside you! (She weighs 55 lbs). We think she would make a wonderful family dog. She walks well on a leash and takes treats gently from your hand. And her tail NEVER stops wagging! (Just watch her video!) Sally clearly craves a family of her own to love and be loved. So why not add her to your family today? All North Central animals come spayed/neutered, microchipped and current on all their shots (including rabies).
