They Call Me, Myrtle! Here’s my life story. Eight months ago, my world turned upside down. My human, who was an elderly lady, became ill. Very ill. Her family came and gathered her up, and brought her to Florida with them to spend her remaining time in assisted living nearby.
But, nobody got me. I didn’t get to go with her, and I was left behind. The family called and explained to the shelter people what happened so that they could get me. I didn’t want to leave the home I had always known, but there was nobody there to take care of me. When I first came to the shelter, I was missing so much hair. I had such bad fleas that my back end was bald. The people here gave me medicine and nice medicated baths. Soon my fur grew back in, and I felt like a pretty lady again!
In December, I was adopted for a short while. The shelter people told everyone that I was GREAT with older kids, but small children who didn’t give me space made me uncomfortable. There was a little child in the home, and I wasn’t happy living there. So, I was brought back to the shelter.
Fast forward to today. I’m still homeless. Well, I have a roof over my head, and I get food and water, and basics like that, so I’m grateful for all that, but I want a home again. Eight months, especially in Animal Control, is a long time to wait for someone to make me their special girl.A nice man comes to the shelter just about every day to walk dogs, and he always makes sure to take me out. I love going for walks. The lady here makes sure I have a blanket at night because I’m a good girl and I don’t shred it! She says I need to be comfortable. I’m thankful for these people, but I want my own people.
I’m Myrtle, and I’d LOVE to be your new best friend! Myrtle is only one of many precious animals at the shelter who need your love and support. Won’t you open your heart and maybe your home to help them? I’m mellow, I have good manners, and I’m not a loud mouth. Sure, If someone is somewhere they shouldn’t be I’ll let you know, but other than that, I’m a quiet girl who just wants to lay on her bed and chew bones- till it’s time for a walk of course!
I’m starting to get worried that nobody is going to take me home with them and that nobody wants to love me.
If you could, meet me. See if I’d make a good companion for you. My name is Myrtle, and my animal ID#A35996732 (but the people here know me by name!) I’m about 5-6 years young. I’ll be waiting for you!
