Guest Post: Adopt A Less-Adoptable-Pet Week, by Mayzie

Okay, as we all know, this is a big week cuz it’s National Dog Week. But did you know it’s also Adopt-a-Less-Adoptable Pet Week?

Yep, that’s right! BlogPaws and Petfinder have linked up and decided that it would just be super great to try to shine the spotlight on doggies and kittehs who have a harder time finding homes. You know – the ones that are more “mature,” or have a handicap, or look a certain way.

You know, pets like me!
Now, I know you’re prolly thinking that’s the ker-aziest thing you ever heard. Considering, well, I’m sort of Most Adorable.

But the truth of the matter is that lots of peoples are skeered of doggies that look like me. And not only that, but when I first got rescued, I was super afraid of lots of stuff. And peoples want to adopt doggies who are pawfectly happy and well-adjusted. So prolly if my mom and dad hadn’t come along when they did, I mighta had a real hard time finding my Most Perfect Home That Ever Was.

And that’s the way it is for my furend, Chloe.
Chloe is being taken care of by the rescue that rescued me – Second Chance Animal Rescue Foundation.

The best they can figure out, Chloe is a greyhound/American Staffordshire Terrier. It’s kinda funny cuz when you look at her body, she sure looks like a greyhound. But when you look at her face, she sure looks like an AmStaff.

Now, me and mom thinks she’s got the Most Beautifulest face. But we have a feeling that when peoples look at Chloe, they don’t see how sweet she is or how smart she is or how she’s really good at playing frisbee. They don’t see that she’s a good girl with great house manners who’s housetrained and crate trained.  They don’t see how much spunk she has, or that she luvs to play and explore. And they don’t see how she luvs peoples and dogs and even kittehs.
No, when they look at Chloe, all they see is that somebuddy at some point cut off her poor little ears.

And when they did that, it made her look intimidating and skeery to some peoples. And cuz of that – that one little thing that she can’t help – she hasn’t been able to find anybuddy to gives her the furever home she deserves.

It doesn’t make any sense to me, cuz all peoples have to do is look past her ears and look into her eyes to know that giving Chloe a home is prolly the best thing they could ever, ever do.

If you’re interested in adopting Chloe – or know somebuddy who is – please click here to contact Second Chance Animal Rescue. Or you can call 719-931-0006 or email delliott AT mindspring DOT com.

Thanks for reading all abouts Chloe. And if you know about a Less-Adoptable-Pet, be sure and join in this Most Terrific effort by clicking here and reading more about it. I just know there’s a furever home out there for every pet. And together we can help them find it!

We want to say a big thank you to Mayzie and her mom person Amber for allowing us to re-post this.  We are sending pawerful prayers that Chloe finds her Most Perfect Home That Ever Was.

We think Chloe is stunning! Our mom had a pitbull and people are just ignorant sometimes. This woman was petting, Harley, and after about 5 minutes of talking the lady asks what kind of dog she was. When mom told her a pit, she pulled her hand away and said OMG! Mom was like you're an idiot!
