Her name, Blue, wasn’t chosen by chance. Even as a puppy, she always seemed a bit melancholic and reserved, only allowing just few of us to approach and pet her. As she grew, so did the weight of her sorrow, accompanied by a deepening fear and a lack of self-assurance. Always solitary, distanced from other dogs, tail tucked and ever watchful. On many a rainy morning, I’d find her wet and muddy, wondering where she sought refuge for the night… Is she denied entry to the dog house, seeking safety amidst the bushes? Even when cradled in the arms of those she trusts, she can’t fully let go, always vigilant for potential threats. She has no companions within the shelter, no close bonds, save for a small circle of us who’ve earned her trust.
I understand that these qualities might not make her an easy adoption, but Blue’s heartrending, endearing nature and her desperate need for a secure haven compel me to make this plea, hoping that my words might touch someone’s heart. Not just touch, but deeply resonate. It would be unbearably sad for Blue to spend the rest of her days like this, confined to a shelter.
