Guest post by Phoebe
My name is Phoebe, and Zoey has graciously allowed me the opportunity to write a guest post this week! In true sisterhood fashion, she’s also shared one of her beautiful party collars with me to wear!
I live in Littleton, Colorado at the Humane Society of the South Platte Valley, (HSSPV) where I’ve resided since December 2011. I was found wandering alone on the streets, so there isn’t much history about me, other than the fact that no one ever came looking for me, and the wonderful people at HSSPV took me in with open arms to help me find a new home. I don’t mean to brag, but I’ve got a lot going for me. Besides being beautiful, I’ve got a super cool personality, and I love to have fun. Cuddling next to you is one of my strong points, and I really like to take people for walks. I always mind my manners though, and never pull on the leash, and when I’m asked to sit and pose for photo opportunities, I happily oblige! I love people, and treats too, and take them politely from your hand. The shelter thinks that I’m about four years old, and I’m spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped…I’m the whole package, and I’m looking to break out of here! Please don’t get me wrong, the folks at the HSSPV treat me really well, and even though the volunteers give me lots of hugs and kisses, none of it compares to having a warm, cozy home of my own.
Thanks for letting me share a bit about myself, and if you’ve got some extra space and love to share, OR if you know of someone who does, please inquire about me by contacting the Humane Society of the South Platte Valley. Zoey even said that she’ll throw in a beautiful party collar to the person who adopts me, and as you can see, I’m very pretty in pink!
Note from Zoey: I just know that Phoebe is going to find a great home! There have been people interested in adopting Phoebe, but unfortunately they live in cities that have banned pit bulls. If only these cities would take the time to know Phoebe, or one of the thousands of others like her. If so, they might reconsider how these bans that have been implemented contribute to an over-abundance of pitbulls in shelters like HSSPV that work real hard to find homes for unwanted and abandoned animals. Tragically though, many pit bulls end up in high kill shelters and these bans only contribute to the deaths of thousands of loving dogs! Makes me sad, but in true canine fashion, I still love all humans, and haven’t given up on them. I’ll keep working my magical powers, and help to implement change!
