A Shelter Dog's Poem

A Shelter Dogs Poem

Once upon a time, you see,

There was this little pup

For reasons unbeknownst to me,

His family gave him up

Maybe it was chewing

Everything that he could find

Maybe they were busy and

Just didn't have the time

They took him to the shelter

And they just left him there

Outside, alone, in the cage

Shivering and scared

Even though they knew inside

If he went through those doors

He may never have the chance

To find a home like yours

He sat there crying silently

Wondering what he did

That was so bad that they just

Had to leave him like they did

However fate was smiling

On that little pup that day

Because a lady saw him

And she whisked him right away

He got a second chance at life

That others may have not

And now he's in a loving home

With everything he wants

Every day he gets that love

That he was looking for

And silently is thankful for when

She walked through that door

Others may not have this chance

So open up your heart

And adopt a shelter dog to take

And give a brand new start

Angel Wells in Martinsburg WV - "All of my dogs are shelter dogs, but I wrote this poem about one of them in particular. He is my chihuahua/papillon mix that has become my therapy dog. He is very special to me and I couldn't live without him. Fate brought us together, and I think if other people would take the time to look in their local shelter, they might find their soul mate as well."

This poem is so touching and makes me think about my little babies and what might have happened to them if I hadn't found them.
