Gentle, beautiful Sonia entered our shelter as a tender pup alongside her siblings, often overlooked in the crowd. Her timid nature and lack of self-esteem meant she was relegated to the sidelines, yearning for affection and a glimpse of a brighter world. But in a place where survival favors the bold, she has silently awaited a guardian to unveil the wonders of a loving home.
Since last few months three dogs started to attack Sonia and she hides in the straw for days. We try to take her out, but three females who have decided to make Sonja’s life miserable are always waiting for her at the exit of the kennel, leaving her cowering in fear within the shelter’s confines. Every night, as the assailants are confined, Sonia finds solace in fleeting moments of peace, yet remains isolated, haunted by uncertainty. The only time she can breathe is during the night, when the dogs that attack her are locked in a box – but then we are gone, so even then she remains alone, with her fear and the question “When will this stop!?”
Another winter is here, and she spends her sad nights and days in solitude, with no one to keep her warm. She quietly waits for her happiness, to appear to her in the form of a human who will show her that there is a beautiful world, different from the shelter. And then her fear will fly away easily, like a bird, and the three dogs that are currently her nightmare will be just a long, forgotten past.
If this sad look made your heart beat faster, maybe this is the love that needs to be given a chance. Are you ready to accept boundless gratitude and love for the security you will provide her?
