“People who work in animal rescue occasionally meet dogs that are very special. These special dogs, who wind up in shelters due to no fault of their own, somehow touch our hearts and we never forget them…even if they are fortunate enough to be adopted into loving families. There is something innately beautiful about them—a gentle sweetness and devotion to their people—that makes us love and remember them.
This post is about MILEY, one of these very special dogs. Miley is a wonderful, well behaved one year old female mixed breed. She is spayed, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped, Miley weighs 45 pounds. Those of us who know her call her a “helper dog”. This means that she is a gentle, neutral, shelter dog who has the uncanny ability to help other shelter dogs adjust to the fear, anxiety, and stress that most shelter dogs experience until they find forever homes. She has become a star performer in the shelter play groups, and her trainer and foster dad has worked wonders with many of the shelter residents along with MILEY’S help.
Now it is her turn. MILEY deserves a loving family and home.
