When a family adopted Sadie, the volunteers never imagined that they would bring her back four times
We read every day stories of poor dogs who, for one reason or another, end up locked up in small and uncomfortable cages of a shelter. There are many dogs who have experienced this kind of experience, but Sadie, the protagonist of this very sad story, found herself living it 4 times.
Sadie first came to the animal shelter in Harris County, in Texas, when he was only a few months old. She was so sweet and pretty that, along with her siblings, it took her very little to find a family willing to adopt it. It was the 2014.
A few months ago, volunteers from the same shelter welcomed a dog into their facility. A long time had passed, so no one could imagine that it was really her. Instead, it was Sadie.
Was scared and feared contact with other people and with other puppies. It was clear that in that period of adoption, that poor creature, he had been through a lot.
Volunteers took pictures and uploaded them back to the internet, receiving feedback after a very short time. The volunteers were happy again, because that puppy had found one new family, the second.
Sadie returns to the shelter twice more
Also this time, the volunteers of the SPCA thought they would never see the dog again, instead, even that family has brought back the dog after a few days.
Those people told us they brought her back because she had had several accidents in the house. We thought that, being nervous, she happened to pee for fear.
Sadly, the staff at the shelter uploaded Sadie’s photos back to the internet and selected what looked like, again, the family perfect for her, the third. The volunteers recommended giving the dog a few days to recover and find her own space. However, those people did not follow that advice at all and found themselves having to manage the anxieties and fears of a puppy too scared to live quietly.
The result was that Sadie is returned to the shelter for her fourth time. An inhumane thing.
Volunteers they don’t give up not even this time. They have decided that before agreeing to further adoption, they will take care of giving Sadie the time and space she needs.
We all hope that theagony of this puppy finish soon.
