Once fully vaccinated, we popped her into our garden to mingle with the other pups as she was much too small to be put back on the street. Once Rita was big enough to be neutered, we did the deed and then put her up for adoption. Except…nobody wanted her. Despite going to numerous adoption days and being viewed by loads of people, our three-legged beauty is always overlooked. We have no idea why! Maybe ‘cos she’s female. Maybe ‘cos she’s a tripod. Maybe ‘cos she’s blonde. Who knows? All we know is that we will be her family until we can find her a forever home, whenever that may be.
RITA, YOU MAY BE ON THE SHELF BUT YOU’RE ON THE BEST SHELF, DARLIN’.
