YOU CAN SEE THE SADNESS IN HER EYES 💔
Today we have yet another sad story of a sweet girl who was constantly overlooked and continues to go unnoticed. My heart breaks for this girl and it is my hope that someone out there reading this will open their heart, and step up to give her the loving home and family she truly deserves.
Beautiful Mona was originally rescued from the town of Hempstead Animal Shelter by @furbabiesrescue and placed in a foster home around the age of 2 years. At the time, she had been living in the shelter for over a year and was constantly overlooked due to being so stressed in her kennel.
As I have mentioned many times before, kennel stress affects many dogs and they can exhibit many different types of symptoms. Mona, didn't have an outlet for her energy, and would give the wrong impression to potential adopters and they would simply pass her by; sadly she had no interest.
Once in her foster home, Mona was housebroken, crate trained, and learned all her basic commands. Her foster family quickly fell in love and became foster failures, adopting Mona. They had her for about a year before returning her to the rescue, suddenly Mona and their smaller dog were not getting along.
Sadly, there we no other available fosters and poor Mona has been sitting in boarding for approximately 3 years now. Dogs that are rescued and go into boarding don’t have people visiting the boarding facility looking to adopt. Again, she goes unnoticed, she needs our help to get her name and face out into the dog loving community.
Mona is a Pitbull/French Bulldog mix who is about 6 years old, and weighs 50 pounds, she is good with kids but seems to do best with larger male dogs or as an only dog (no cats or small animals please). She absolutely loves playing with balls and she carries one around everywhere! #adoptdontshop, #rescuedog, #nydog, #pitmix, #frenchbulldogmix, #adoptabledog, #furbabiesrescue
