A couple months ago I walked away from a local animal control shelter with a dog that needed a lot of inner beauty to make up for her current condition. We named her Scarlett No-Haira because that name best described her.
I'd gone to the shelter because of numerous begs from some of the shelter volunteers. They wanted me to see this dog they said was so special and so very sweet and deserving. She was also scheduled for euthanasia the next morning. So I said "yes" to a dog that I knew would be with us for awhile before she would be ready for adoption. One of the volunteers was so excited, she hugged me.
This is what Scarlett looked like when I first brought her home. Who knows how must time and neglect had brought her to this state.
Our vet said she had a serious skin infection, possibly from a flea allergy. She was also severely underweight.
It took almost no time for us to learn that Scarlett was just as special as the shelter volunteers said she was. She was sweet-tempered and well behaved -- a charmer.
And so we began with medication, good food, baths and love. And Scarlett loved back. The ugly duckling soon showed signs of becoming a beautiful swan. Besides cuddling and sleeping on human beds, Scarlett loved chasing balls and going on walks in the woods. Her best human friend, Jeanette, recently brought her home a bag of yellow tennis balls. Scarlett was beside herself with joy.
These next pictures show the Scarlett of today. Scarlett, who is maybe 4 or 5 years old, is now ready for adoption. She'll make a great pet and a good watchdog too.
We want only the best for Scarlett. Might that be you?
