Years ago, two dogs were abandoned by their owners who moved away…leaving them behind. As if moving away wasn’t bad enough, the dogs were tied up and left alone in the basement of a house. Neighbors, tired of hearing the dogs desperate barks for help, finally reported the situation to the authorities and the dogs were saved.
The dogs, reported to be siblings were taken to a shelter in Wantagh, New York – the male was quickly adopted, but the female, named Olivia, remained homeless for nearly 450 days. Finally, after what seemed like an eternity, Olivia found her way into a real home in December 2016.
For a year, Olivia enjoyed being a companion – living with a family and loving all of the attention that home life brings. Sadly, a happily-ever-after was not meant to be for this lovely girl – her new family decided to surrender her. Not because Olivia was a bad dog, rather, because they were moving and she didn’t fit into their new plans.
Now, Olivia is back in an animal shelter, confused and depressed. Olivia has her own Facebook page and on February 6, a sad post revealed just how hopeless she currently is:
I don’t do well in the shelter. The 446 days spent here has done its damage to me emotionally. To be back here again has broken me. I need to get out and hopefully to a home that will keep me for good this time.
Please give Olivia some much needed attention by sharing her adoption information. She has been let down too many times and deserves her very own “happy tail.”
