Our cause is the St. Louis Senior Dog Project, the three of us and about 70 more dogs are currently being fostered in a home just like yours, in a home were there are probably already way to many dogs but there is always room to squeeze one more in :).
I was rescued in August 2009, picked up at a auction from a puppymiller closing his kennel. When you hear about puppy mills closing I think most people are worried about the poor little puppies in cages and forget about those older dogs that made the puppies, those older dogs that have spent their entire lives in cages. Their fate is pretty grim when a kennel closes down, you buy a puppy for 500 dollars and you find the older 7 year old dog being sold for 30 dollars at an auction. That's it, that is what a dog is worth to people that constantly bred them and never held them, 30 bucks. On the day of the auction people bid faster and higher for the puppies, and only a few groups, St. Louis Senior Dog Project among them, didn't turn their backs on the older dogs and on those not quite old but still in need of a home like me. My current foster mom Michel was there that day and I have been with her ever sense. I was in pretty bad shape when she first got me, I couldn't handle being picked up and I would loose control of my bowels if someone made the motion to touch me. I won't elaborate too much as too why I came to be this way, I think while I was at the puppy mill I lost myself, I know what you are thinking, that's pretty deep and I am only a dog, but every creature has its energy and mine was gone, I didn't know how to be a true dog.
My cause is the St. Louis Senior Dog Project because I have found myself once more, with love and patience and even more love. I have a second chance and its because of all their efforts. I am still looking for a forever home and I hope to find it soon because I am ready to start my real life.
