RP: @nycscr - Flushing Nala's Story!!!!
What am I to do? I was born into this crazy world for some reason but not by choice ... I never would have signed on if I had known it would be this way... I somehow landed in a shelter before I was even 6 months old... there I stood, scared and alone as I wondered what I did to deserve this.... just when I had given up hope, someone came and adopted me. I was her world for a few months and we did everything together until the baby was born... I suddenly found myself locked in my crate constantly and if I was lucky, I was given some food and taken out to go potty... many days I sat in this cage covered in my own waste wondering why I was forgotten... I spent many months this way until finally I was surrendered to Second Chance Rescue!!! A volunteer came to pick me up and took me to the vet for a checkup... I loved all the attention... she even stopped at a doggie wash and gave me a nice bath and washed away all the bad feelings from my days before... she told me she was making me pretty for my new foster mom, whatever that meant... when I got there I found out I would have a foster brother to play with!!! I was super happy and we quickly became good friends... I learned how to be a dog again... we went hiking often and even swimming and after 3 months, I really thought I finally made it to the good life but little did I know, this was only temporary until my foster mom moved... Then I was told I was adopted!!! I would have a home of my own and new brother to play with... I was nervous but thought it could not be worse then what I went through in the past... we drove a long time in the car and I loved the smells of the country air as we left the big city behind... but after only a few days my adopter asked to return me... I wasn't given time to decompress and was expected to instantly understand the rules of their home... so now here I am still in this home, waiting to be picked up and not knowing where I'm going next!!! I've been through so many changes over the last year and I'm really losing hope... I just want to be loved and have a place to call home!!! #nyc#manhattan#brooklyn#statenisland#longisland#newark
