My first owners were not “Once in love with Amy, always in love with Amy.” When I showed up at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on April 17th I had the beginnings of an embedded collar. I felt like someone had a strangle-hold on me and my raw skin hurt with every move of my head. I was lost, scared and hungry. The shelter is no place for any dog, but especially a Pit Bull mix like myself.
But I wasn’t without admirers. Dean Martin mooned over me. Frank Sinatra crooned over me. Gretchen Kozen, a shelter animal advocate, was attuned to me: I needed rescue, not “Bone-bones, poetry and flowers!” On April 19th Gretchen asked RADAR for assistance with the cost of vetting as an incentive for a rescue to take me. The nice people at RADAR agreed and on May 4th Adoption First Animal Rescue in North Carolina “tore up their list and couldn’t wait to get kissed” by me! But first, on May 22nd, I went to be vetted and spayed. I didn’t want puppies by some “fickle-hearted Rover who later says it’s over.”
I am sweet, funny and affectionate. Even though my skin was growing around a tight collar, I walk very nicely on a leash! I have an outgoing personality and got along well with my kennel mates. I love to play, play, play! I am only one to two years old, so I have lots of energy! I have a song named for me, but I can’t carry a tune in a dog bowl. However, I can hum along at your side as you rock to the rhythm of “Always in love with Amy!” To see more photos of me, click here.
RADAR paid all of Amy’s initial vetting and spaying costs, totaling $68.
