Piggie, an American Bully, was found wandering the streets of Sacramento, California. He was taken off the streets by animal control officers and transferred to the local animal shelter. Shortly after his rescue, the pandemic hit, and every animal shelter was forced to empty its kennels.
Thankfully, people came forward to foster every shelter dog. Piggie ended up with his loving foster mom, Andrea. She couldn’t tell if he liked him or not because he barely had any reaction when they met.
The 6-year-old dog wasn’t at his best to be friendly. He was so sick he couldn’t walk more than 20 feet. His nose was covered with a crusty keratin substance that caused him so much discomfort.
It took several vet consultations before Piggie started to feel better. He required special meds to manage his pain, CBD cream and coconut oil to soothe his nose, and tons of love and affection for him to realize that he was finally in a safe place.
After four months, Piggie transformed into a different dog. He was happy and playful and was ready to find his new home. He couldn’t wait to finally meet his adoptive family.
Andrea wrote a full adoption profile on Piggie. She worked on it for hours before sending it to the shelter administration. After submitting what she wrote, she burst into tears and questioned whether what she did was right.
Realizing it was wrong to let Piggie go, Andrea called the shelter administrators and asked them to take the dog’s profile off their website. She told them Piggie need not find a home because he already found one. He became her family since the day he came.
Andrea loves Piggie so much. She will sacrifice everything to ensure he lives the best life. She will shield her from all harm and keep him safe all the time.
