Sandy’s Rescue Story
Posted by Abby Rosenberg on May 24, 2013
Filed under PetMeds Spotlight

Hello, My name is Sandy. Well, it’s Sandy now. I don’t remember what my name used to be. But I do remember this.

One day, it started raining really bad. It got very windy and very cold. The humans I lived with back then put stuff in boxes and left. I did not know where they were going but trusted they would come back like they always did. So I waited for them.

My water dish was getting dry, my food dish was empty and my humans were not back yet. The door to outside was open so I went out to look for them. I could not find them anywhere. I was getting very thirsty and drank some water I found on the floor. There was lots of water on the floor for me to drink after the rain. I was getting hungry and found some food to eat as well. I must have been walking a really long time to look for my humans because before I knew it, I was lost. My humans were gone and I was getting very scared. I was never alone before.

Sooner or later other humans saw me and came over to me, but I was scared of them and ran away. One day someone put all this food in a garden for me. I was so hungry at that time I went in the garden and ate all that food. While I was eating, I heard a door close shut. I got very scared and started barking. Turns out, the food someone left for me was not in a garden. It was in a trap to get dogs like me off the streets and in loving homes.

I was then taken to the vet to get examined. Because I was outside for so long, I had a bad skin infection and had to have a special bath and have all my fur shaved off.

After my visit to the vet, I went to a place with other dogs and cats like me. All the humans there were nice, but I was still scared of them. They started calling me Sandy and took me to a home where there were humans and other dogs. I liked the house, the humans and other dogs that were there. I am still there now and am not scared of humans anymore.

I love my new home and my new furever family and I TRUST my new humans will NEVER leave me in the rain.

Thank you for reading the story of my rescue.
